Winner - Challenge #376: Center Composition
Posted By: atupdate, 01-13-2017, 08:51 AM

I can honestly say that this was the toughest challenge for me to judge. There were nine images, that when I first viewed them, I said to myself “I wish I had taken that image”. From those nine, I have chosen eight honorable mentions and one winner.

Honorable Mention: aaacb, djb47, eva, gomez, georgioandjillian, KTschappat, noelcmn, and Pentaksi

Winner: Charlie (charliezap) – I love the action, the leading line of the hand, the blue of the sky and most of all, the stare down of the seagull. Great capture.

Thanks to everyone that entered.

Well now, an honor indeed to receive an HM amid such fantabulous submissions in this weeks challenge. Congrats to CharlieZap. Is it my imagination, but has'nt that image won a previous challenge- a sure testament to how excellent it is. And congrats to my fellow HM's aaacb, djb47, eva, geomez,(whose gorgeous image has also appeared somewhere before) georgioandjillian, KTschappat and Pentaksi. A hearty thanks to our judge for the challenge and judging exercise. Wonderful inspiring stuff in this challenge.

Congrats to all the HM's and to Tim in judging this challenge.I've had similar photos like this that have done very well in previous challenges but this is a first for this shot. Now I need to sit back with a "red solo cup" and think of what challenge #377 will be.Hopefully I'll have it posted tomorrow.--charliezap.
