P52-3-48 Landscape- Counterpoint winner
Posted By: Jools, 07-05-2011, 05:33 PM

I found this one difficult to judge because of the counterpoint theme, but probably more so because of the high quality images in this week‘s challenge.
My congrats to all of you.

casil403: Dramatic image juxtaposing the angry blue/gray clouds and rain with the calm green field below. I got the feeling the storm would be upon me in any moment.

xjjohnno: Another nice image in this challenge. I felt the nature vs. man-made counterpoint. I liked the foreground growth (vertical lines) and the man-made (mostly horizontal lines) very much.

jmschrei: Really enjoyed your B&W image with the sun ray effect in contrast to the vertical electric poles and the trees below. The angle of the poles and the trees really worked for me.

Tamia: A sharp image. I liked the static foreground rocks and standing water in contrast to the blurred motion of the flowing water in a marvelous nature shot. The composition really brings in the viewer.

Believe me, it was difficult to select a single image; the winner is:

Congratulations Lisa! I was thinking of this shot with the tornado warnings over this area the other day. I will try to come up with something for the current challenge which at the moment has no entries for you to judge!
