RESULTS – ‘Mobile Floral’

Posted by

This mobile-only contest focused on florals (‘Mobile Floral’). Our award-winning, mobile-photography judge Lisa Waddell comments:

“This fabulous group of photos has all the things I like to see in floral images: flowers that tell stories; flowers that show all of themselves with “in your face” blooms; and flowers that show only parts of themselves. This was a difficult contest to judge because there were several images worthy of each of the six places. The decisions I made came down to the more subtle things like how the image background looked in partnership with the main subject. Thanks to all who entered and congratulations to the winners below…”

First Place
by Mikael Sundberg
“Mobile Floral 1”
Judge’s Comment: In my opinion this image has it all. The minimalist, still-life composition gives the impression that the flower is coming out of the fog. The texture of the flower is evident, which adds depth to the image. The colors are fabulous and pop against the understated background. I also like the element of grunge; also understated yet effective. This powerful image definitely has a story to tell. Well done!

Second Place

“In the Back Yard”
Judge’s Comment: This is another well-composed shot, even if maybe bottom-heavy. There are great lines with one bloom curving to the left and the other straight. The shallow depth of field is good, and the bug on the bloom in front is an added bonus. This is an image with great character and lots of originality.

Third Place
by Stefano M
“Mobile Floral”
Judge’s Comment: This image has a sharp, clear focus, and the colors and contrast are great. The background could be a little less busy, but I love that this photo reminds me of a piece of paper that has been wadded up and thrown away.

“After the Rain”
Judge’s Comment: I like that this photo focuses on part of the flower and not the whole plant. It makes for a much more interesting image. The lighting is lovely and the colors are soft. This image conveys a peaceful feeling.

“Passion Flower”
Judge’s Comment: This is a good straight forward flower shot that maximizes the uniqueness of the Passion Flower. Although the colorful red objects at bottom right are a bit distracting, this is still a great detail-filled image that pops with color.

“Never Give Up”
Judge’s Comment: This lovely rose looks like it has been lit from within – it just glows. The background is a bit busy with bright areas, but the flower dominates. It’s an electrifying image.
