WINNERS Challenge #437 Aligned -- 23 October to 31 October 2018
Posted By: aaacb, 11-03-2018, 05:57 AM

Last time I had the honor of judging a weekly contest, I didn't have time to comment much. So this time I wanted to take the time, and to thank you for making this a real challenge and having me host it.

SpecialK - fits the theme, and an interesting photo, were the airplanes backlit or did you pp to make them silhouettes?
ramseybuckeye - despite it being heavy machinery, it looks serene. nice (morning?) light and greens on the ground.
rod_grant - it's all about the light in this one, and it creates a certain atmosphere. have you tried a 5:4 crop to remove the branches in the top right? (or pp)
RGlasel - funny play on the theme!
Vaskebjorn - nice simple abstract
mingdie - clean minimalist photo. at least on the light forum background, I would increase brightness and maybe contrast
Hattifnatt - I've always wondered why they used those shapes; if only there was someone walking in the distance
atupdate - pleasant tones, and the extra detail with the objects just outside of the main stage is interesting
jacamar - as if unaligned birds weren't hard enough, plus reflections for good measure
eva - the second monk's gesture is the extra detail needed to focus the viewer and add interest
mocker - clean minimalist photo, I wonder how it would look in black and white
Bruce Clark - golden light, I like it
K1N8 - took me a while to get it, but now I think I do, and the storm clouds add tension. the white tower seems like it could be brightened a bit for more contrast with the clouds
djb47 - almost an abstract
sealonsf - this raises questions which add interest, what are they doing? I like that the subject (second to the right?) is cleanly separated from all others
runswithsizzers - there's a lot of detail in this photo; the brighter chairs in the foreground distract from the posters on the back wall
charliezap - thanks for the full series and the story, beautiful landscape
noelcmn - boat #9 stands out in that nice arrangement, but the background is a bit busy, although I don't see a good way to exclude it from the frame
retsoor - good variety of kayaks
jcdoss - the out of focus cables (?) create an interesting effect, but I'm not sure what to look at between the lamp and the cable
nosliwmit -

And now for the final results:

charliezap is the winner

HM - jacamar, eva, atupdate

Looking forward to next week's challenge!

Congratulations to Charlie on his winning image. Curses to Charlie for not being available to Judge the next challenge. More curses to Charlie, as I have been asked to host the next challenge. And here I thought I got away with it by making the HM round.
