#243 WIRED Winners
Posted By: Jools, 05-13-2013, 10:01 PM

Well, so happy we got this many entries for this challenge. And sorry for the delay, but Life got in the way of PF.
From my viewpoint, some interesting interpretations, I was surprised nobody came up with something relating to the internet or the computing world..
I thank you all for participating. Really, viewing all the possibilities you have offered makes a difference in my life.

Now to comment and judge.

@Alkazalsir: Lovely image. Sugar rush thought I, yeah the energy of youth. I would agree he was wired after that bountiful.

@NaClH20: Grand image of an icon of New York City, great leading lines and composition. Wires galore. And yeah, the Zenitar is a great tool as you have shown.

@atupdate: Really like the light on this captive subject. The fence and position of the animal say it all. I was left with something to think about.

@slowpez: What a find! Nesting on an electrical pole. Wildlife never ceases to awe me. Wired indeed.

@charliezap: Some great colors and simmering background. I was thinking some New Year's Eve celebration but with a twist. Nice image.

@Bramela: Really enjoyed the mood and the lines in this image. The late light really added to this shot.

@casil403: Interesting interpretation of the theme. High key shots are hard to execute and you have done so well with a lovely subject to boot. Bear is in the house.

@Bill2849: What really grabbed me from the get go was your composition and PoV. A seemingly simple foto but in further review giving the viewer a choice of nature and manmade structures. The varying lines from top to bottom interested me a lot.

@Mike L: Again, another lovely PoV. But also the juxtaposing lines and the textures with that indigo background were quite appealing. Nice work. Really enjoyed it.

@Tamia: A seemingly subtle composition but with a lot meaning and mood. Really liked the detail and sense of place. Nicely enjoyed.

@fotogaffer: Another great PoV from my perspective. Fantastic leading lines and the light (time of day) add to the viewer's delight.

@clou: I smiled at your image in appreciation. These seemingly mundane out of the way things make great images; I am fool for them. I saw a face in the box amid all the wires, metal and plastic. Good eye and caption.

@noelcmn: Great to see a macro/closeup of this interpretation. Fantastic color and detail on both the insect and wire. Nicely done.

@Arjay Bee: Love the minimalist approach and certainly the diagonal composition of this image. Spartan in nature with a lot of oomph when all is said and done. Nice one.

And for the hard part, my selections.
Congrats to all participants. You all give wind to these challenges.

Honorable mentions:



Third Place:
Mike L

Second Place:
Arjay Bee

First Place:

So Salty, it is up to you in the next go around. Congrats. Look forward to your theme.

I didnt expect that - so a big thank you for the second place gong. I too enjoyed many of the shots in this weeks contest as they were the sorts of shots that I notice and take myself.

Congratulations to NaCl(fisheye)H20 and other participants- I look forward to the next go round.
