Challenge #380 Winners - Ball
Posted By: Will in Seattle, 02-28-2017, 06:26 PM

Thanks again for the opportunity to judge this contest . You folks didn't make it easy for me - there were a lot of great shots.

Third place - geomez:

I love interesting textures. This is visually-stunning, sharp (no pun intended) and well composed, and works beautifully in black/white.

Second place - sealonsf:

This shot perfectly captures that intense focus with which dogs chase down a ball. The tension as she tries to change direction mid-air is fantastic!

First place - Hattifnatt:

This image stood out to me because not only is it interesting visually, it goes beyond the imagery and really starts to evoke feelings - the end of the day, the end of summer, having to leave things behind move on ... great photo!

Honorable mentions:
Tamia's snow and moon scene is stunningly gorgeous.
slowpez's web orb is strangely captivating to me.

Thanks again, and good luck next week!

Congrats to the Honorables Tamia and slopez.

Thank you to Will for the consideration and for the interesting challenge (that I'd have never thought of myself).

What a awesome shot, loaded with documentary and as noted, evokes a lot of emotion. And stunning composition too. Worthy winner so a hearty congrats to Hattifnatt. And extended to the other podium places Sealonsf and Geomez, not forgetting the HM's Tamia and Slowpez. Loved this challenge, great idea Will. thanks for the judging exercise.

Those were exactly my thoughts when I took this photo on a lonely beach in November quite a while ago. Always nice when you manage to pass the feeling to the viewer.

I will try to come up with a new theme by tomorrow evening.

Congratulations Hattifnatt for your evocative lonely scene. Great work from everyone, and kudos to Sealonsf and Geomez as well as Susan/Slopez. Thanks for the HM, Will. Your theme was enjoyable and encouraged excellent entries. Well done all.

Well done everyone!
