Weekly Challenge Winners - Weekly Challenge #283 Shelter
Posted By: Arjay Bee, 05-12-2014, 01:38 PM

Well I am finally able to get to the task and the delay is partly caused by the difficulty as usual of choosing the personal standouts and partly the issue with lack of wireless access with the visit to NZ over the last few days and the travel associated. Thank you for your patience...

I would have liked to comment on all images as I have in the past but access is an issue so will unfortunately will be brief this time around.

The images that I particularly enjoyed were:

Third: SpecialK with the Pueblo ruins under the cliffs - possibly as I have just read 'Blood Meridian' by Cormac McCarthy

Second: Franco64 with the parental embrace - possibly as I have just spent several days with my own family and grandchildren

The winner for this week is Geomez with this image:



I like the travel and the crowdedness and the protection being given the child against the side of the train and the somewhat troubled concerned look on the childs face. Kudos to the photographer for choosing this location to use the camera....

Over to you Geomez.

Thank you everyone! I really appreciate it!
Thank you Arjay Bee for choosing my photo.
Good entries guys!

To give a little back story...
That is my wife and daughter in the pic.
We had spent a long day of hiking in Yosemite National Forest lastt summer, and were riding the shuttle back to our room along with our two sons. The bus was packed as you can see. I really didn't put much thought into the pic, I just lifted my K-5 IIs and snapped two shots. I was pretty much in zombie mode, I was so tired. When I got back home, I thought it was worth processing. I played around with the color and realized I liked it best in b&w. I love street photography (but never do it) and felt it fit the look of a street shot.

I will be back shortly with a new thread and a new theme.
Just a question though, as I am fairly new at weekly challenges...
Can I start the new post any day of the week or is the weekend preferred?

Congratulations Geomez, that is indeed a fine interpretation of the theme, and that look of anxiety is precious! Good for you for making good use of an opportunity. And congrats too to Franco64 and SpecialK. Thanks Arjay Bee for a fine challenge, and for judging under strenuous circumstances. Hope you had a good time in NZ.

Geomez, you can post the new challenge any time, more important is that you clearly state the closing date, keeping in mind it is a weekly challenge-give us a all a week or so!
