FRAMES: Photo Challenge #59: Beatles Song Title: STAND-OUTS

Again, nice work on capturing a Beatle’s song title for this month’s challenge. Remember, there aren’t any winners or losers, I just pick a few and ramble about why they stand-out to me for various reasons.

These photos will be published in the December 9th. edition of the Kitsap Sun.

Here are my choices:

“Across The Universe” by Jake Dalzell

I like that instead of shooting a long landscape type shot, as most Northern Lights photos tend to be, Jake just looked straight up and shot them from this angle with only the smidge of trees in the corner of the frame. It’s a beautiful shot and very well executed.

 

“Don’t Bother Me” by Theresa Borne

I really hope Theresa made it out of the chicken coop unharmed because this looks like one really angry bird. Aside from the great expression of this terrifying creature, I love the composition of the frame and how the viewer focuses right in on that face  but can see a bit of the chicken’s body and the coop in the background.

“All Together Now” by Faith Winters

The use of the flash on these little ladies really makes this image pop and gives it a really nice rock and roll / punk feel. Plus the varying poses and expressions of the subjects (especially the little diva on the right) makes me smile.

“In Spite Of All The Danger” by Steve Fisher

Oh so many “why did the fish cross the road jokes” but so little time. This is a great frame, and I am always amazed when I see these photos of fish swimming across the road since I have yet to witness this phenomenon for myself. Steve shot this image wonderfully with a great composition that shows the whole scene of the road, the other fish and that truck bearing down on the jayswimmers. Not to mention the great action he captured as that fish jumped onto the pavement with a splash.

“Good Day Sunshine” by Noelle Morris

I like how the sunshine looks to be radiating out of Seattle, making the city look like an island of sunshine in a sea of storminess. It’s a beautiful shot with lovely color and contrast.
