FRAMES: Photo Challenge #51: STAND-OUTSJune 27th, 2012 by Meegan Reid
Nice job on the circle photos everyone! Here are my choices for stand-outs, they will hopefully be published in the Kitsap Sun sometime this weekend.
And remember, there are no winners or losers, I just pick out a few and ramble about why they stood-out to me for various reasons.
“Textured Wood” by Jack C. Harpel
You’ve got circles inside of circles over and over again in the frame and it is delightful! It also has a nice mellow feel to it because the color palette. It’s a shot I would hang on the wall of my home.
“Wine-O’s” by N Lael Alspach
I’m a fan of photos that have repetition and this one fits that bill. The perfect horizontal and vertical lines that fill the frame also give it a wonderful composition.
“Bees on Comb” by Kimmiee and J Morgan
What a BEEautiful photo! I hope the photographer was BEEing very careful when they shot this photo, BEEcause yikes there are a lot of bees hanging out on those circular combs. Okay, bee puns aside, this photo is wonderfully lit and has a tremendous amount of detail in it.
“Straw Power” by Collette Wilson
This photo makes me a little bit dizzy because of the swirl of those straws. But photos that make one feel a sense of movement are a good thing so kudos to Colette for making me a little motion sick while sitting in my office chair and for finding a unique view of a container of straws.
“Round and Round” by Harriet Miles
I love all the different sizes of circles in this photo as well as the extreme variations in the texture of the objects. The detail of those textures; rocks, glass floats, fishing bobbers etc. is really fantastic.
