Winners: Weekly Challenge #314: "Love"
Posted By: oculus, 02-16-2015, 07:52 AM

Hello and thank you for all of the submissions to this week's challenge which had the theme of "Love". It was interesting to see the various interpretations. Here are my comments and selections:

LucaBumble: Perennial love. Good choice for monochrome.

sealonsf: A love with which we are all sympathizers!

Rimfiredude: An excellent moment and well-captured.

charliezap: Beautiful composition.

MadMathMind: Love which sees beyond the surface.

Zamke14: Excellent macro and interpretation.

atupdate: A mother's love.

Outis: Very nice detail and interpretation of this interesting cactus.

ars: Good photograph and interpretation.

jack002: "Mine is a function" : enough said!

Special K: An excellent capture of human love.

Jheu02: A beautiful scene, with clever focusing.

simon_199: Very cool culinary macro and interpretation

Dieterson: Granny's love!

mecrox: Beautiful capture and composition.

noelcmn: Great floral macro.

Because of the relatively few submissions, I will only choose three top finishers. Paucity of submissions aside, the quality was quite good this week and I find myself in the awkward position of judging better photographers than myself! Here goes...

3rd Place

simon_199: Your description says it all, "A box of chocolates is a traditional present the lovers exchange. When it is full of hand-made, beautifully irregular little bricks, that truly means love."

2nd Place

LucaBumble: Just a beautiful monochrome depicting perennial love.


SpecialK: Love epitomized in a photograph! Well done and congratulations.

Congrats SpecialK- a real heart warming shot that one! A worthy winner imho. Congrats too LucaBumble and Simon_199. Thanks Oculus for this challenge and the judging exercise, and despite the relatively few entries, still a delightful bunch to view.
