JUDGE’S OVERALL COMMENTS (+ see individual winner comments by clicking on images below):
“From underwater scenes to umbrellas and “upward” themed images, I had a lot of great material to judge for this contest. I enjoyed having the honor and opportunity, and I’m very happy to be able to highlight my top three picks (on the graphic 1st-2nd-3rd images below) as well as these two additional images that inspired me:
Under the Weather by eeerowdy: I love the color palette, which is “retro” in feel, but still bright and colorful overall (except of course for the dark clouds above, which probably have a lot to do with the photo’s title: “Under the Weather”). The combination of an established city with a corporate feel on the left with a lighter feel on the right (featuring colorful flags and the beautiful circular walkway (and even a ladder!)) all came together to make this an Honorable Mention favorite.
Under Water by fzmway: I was drawn to this underwater photo of a pencil due to: the close-up framing, vivid green color, tiny bubbles covering the pencil and distinctive band from a pencil sharpener. I was also intrigued by the fact that the pencil had written something, yet there is no hand visible. I also enjoyed looking around the “tank” and seeing the bubbles, as well as the in-focus and out of focus areas.”
