Dear Streethunters.net Readers,
The first Monthly Theme Contest photos have been submitted and we took a good look at them all and finally made our choices. Please keep in mind that the process of selecting a photo is very difficult and challenging owing to the high standard of the photos entered!
First of all let’s take a look at all the photos that were submitted to this Monthly Theme Contest. At this moment I would like to thank each and every participant for submitting their photograph. We have a great collection of photos with “Layers” to show you! This time we had 20 submissions which can all be seen here:
Since there is no longer any voting, we are presenting the photos with the name of the photographer.
The 3 nominees
Every month each one of us Streethunters.net editors picks one photo as a nominee. Here are the photos we chose and the reasons why:
- “Layers” submission by Alexey Kuzmis
The reflections in the mirror make this already great shot even greater. It’s like a bonus layer! The almost expressionless fellow in the foreground funnels you in and when you break loose, you’re rewarded with what’s going on behind.
- “Layers” submission by Guille Ibanez
Talk about fulfilling the brief for layers! There’s so much going on in this shot. I love how the viewer’s eye is led around the frame by the photographer. It’s a photo packed with women of all ages on so many levels – even the statue in female. And then just off centre we spot the lone male figure in the pink shirt. Fantastic.
- “Layers” submission by F.D. Walker
It was so hard to choose. So many cool photos. I had to choose one though, so my choice is number 19. The photographer has framed the photograph in such a way that four different layers are clearly visible, five if you count the shadow of the person in the middle of the photograph with two hands up that is cast on the back of the tent. Even though there are so many layers, the photograph is balanced perfectly. I love the fact that the hand of the boy is pointing up on the right of the photo while at the same time the man on the left has one hand up too. To “blend” these two focal points together is the man in the middle with both his hands up. I could write more and more about this photo, but I will save my analysis if it wins the contest.
Stay tuned to find out who will win the Contest and the Camslinger 160 Street Edition!
So there you have it Streethuntes.net Readers. We have made our choices and now we have to debate which one is the best out of the 3. Next week we will reveal this month’s winner of the contest and the COSYSPEED Camslinger 160 Street Edition, so stay tuned!
