Winners! - Weekly Challenge #385 Highlights
Posted By: mattb123, 04-30-2017, 10:30 PM

Lots of great entries and forgive me for being so slow. I wanted to say a little something about each photo and circumstances have not exactly been accommodating for me.
Anyway, here are my notes on each photo:

Bruce Clark - Nice image of the Spider Lily. It stands out out nicely against the background and the highlights really help.
atupdate - Interesting and very retro looking image of Moe. The highlight definitely makes him stand out against the background. Glad he's not in distress.
charliezap - good image of the falls and some special looking clouds and light! It's unfortunate the cloud highlights blew out but it's still an enjoyable image.
Vaskebjorn - It certainly qualifies! Nice bokeh balls from the oof highlights and also some on the in focus subject.
Tamia - Nice color in that refelction and highlights in the bubbles. Interesting shapes and textures in there too!
WileyB - Yes, they bring that cholla to life! Nice shot and good example if the theme.
geomez - interesting patterns and subtle color. The highlights are pretty subtle too.
sealonsf - I really like this. The highlighted rock almost jumps out at me. Nice.
Nicks_k3_photos - Nice image and the frost makes some very nice highlights. Great light as you mentioned and the reflection works too. Nice.
aaacb - Good shot of the instrument. The highlight really draws my eye to it.
SD_Bob - great light and interesting terrain. The highlights really draw me to those distant shapes.
SpecialK - an intriguing image and great interpretation of the theme. I like it.
smf - nice graphic feel to this. Works grate and the high contrast highlights make a neat effect.
StephenHampshire - Great shot. The highlighted smoke and trumpet details really make it. Great interpretation.
Arjay Bee - the fireworks are good but I especially like stuff like the highlights on the people. Nice.
jchorst - Quite the capture! The highlights certainly draw the eye in!
AggieDad - Good reflection and nice water highlights contrasting with the duck.
jacamar - Love that highlighted mist. Beautiful scene.
Geodude - the backlit butterfly and the plants all have good highlights that enhance the shot. Good catch.
EBirdy - Looks like a familiar scene! Great golden highlight in the hillside there.
ramseybuckeye - That's really nice. Love the effect of the light on the tracks.
noelcmn - they certainly can and this is a great example.
slowpez - Great scene, nice catch.
djb47 - Lice architectural image and some good highlights there in the foreground.
lukulele - very contrasty and that flower almost jumps off the screen!
jheu02 - Great color here and some good shape enhancing highlights on the performer.
eva - Lovely mountain scene. Snow highlights are some of my favorites!

And the winner is...
StephenHampshire! Just a fanastic shot that also shows the theme well. Congratulations!


Second goes to
sealonsf


Third to smf


It's purely a coincidence I chose all mono images for he podium. Lots of good color ones too, it just worked out this way.
