The Photo Contest: “Blue”

Contests where the theme is a color always brings out the best in entrants’ photography. In the past we have done yellow, purple and red. This contest, “Blue”, was no different with superb entries coming from all over the world.

We chose John Snider’s “Snuggle” as the grand prize winner this month. Snider did a great job of demonstrating the theme as well as coming up with a winning, eye-catching composition.

Coming in very close behind Snider was Ladder” by Hezi Holtsman. Holtzman showed a creative example of the theme, “Blue”, and the composition was especially strong. The shadow the man on the ladder casts across the blue wall really makes this photo.

In the Second Runner-up position was Feelings of Depressionby T. Alan Kirk.What we especially liked about this image is that it captured more than the obvious meaning of the word “Blue”. A good composition, some skillful imaging editing, and a good concept makes this image stand out.

Congratulations to the Honorable Mentions in this contest. All of your images demonstrated good technical and artistic abilities.
