This competition was sparked by a discussion in the ‘A Photographers Craft’ forum. The idea being to photograph an apple or something similar, and use digital imagery to alter the original image.
Two of the top three have been mentioned here before in the Promotion, so i will not re-introduce them. Karri is a mother with a talent for turning the everyday image into a piece of art. All three have a wealth of talent and are very deserving of their efforts in the competition. Adriana Glackins effort has some lovely texture and simple colours that bring the apple to life. Dana DiPasquales image once again emphasises the colour of the apple, with a lovely perspective and texture. Karri Klawiters use of light is exquisite.
The aim of this task was to capture your home.
Amanda Cottons beautifully framed and precisely captured entry Steps in the Sand finished first. This image draws you in, like you are sitting there on the sand, soaking up the sun, along with Amanda. I wish i lived near such a beach and to say the least, I am very jealous. It has been a very long time between dips in the salty sea. Not so for Amanda though as she is a big underwater and landscape photography fan. Her portfolio is well worth a visit.
Jemima (lovesbigted) is an avid Redbubbler and one hell of a street photographer slash graphic artist, and has pulled out a wonderful suburban urban image Night Scene 2. My favourite. The use of light is perfect, and composition well structured. Just like your walking down the street.
I decided to plaster my entry up. I love this image, which is rare, as I tend to be my worst critic. It is not easy to take images on the streets in East London. Just the other day, while taking a photo of the front of the pub in which the sign in the image is for, i was abused! Not the first time this has happened. It is not easy being a street photographer these days. No longer carries prestige, but instead seems to be seen as a threat. My image Home was taken a the top of my street.
All profits from the purchase of these or any images in The Gift Of Art go to the selected monthly charity.
Top of the list this week is Rose Atkinson’s image Diagonal. I love this image. It is a great example of simple photography. Rosa has an outstanding and original portfolio that i highly recommend viewing here.
My entry was New York City 8. This image was taken at the previous World Trade Centre site. New York City is a architectural photographers wet dream. Everywhere you look there are shapes and shades, lines and shadows, reflections and of course, people. I have a journal about my trip to the USA here.
This time i will add another three more entries, just for my love of lines.
See you next Challenge.
