FRAMES: Photo Challenge #68: The Fair: STAND-OUTSSeptember 3rd, 2013 by Meegan Reid
Again nice work on the Fair photos! While we didn’t get a whole lot of entries, the ones that we got were just grand so here are my “stand-outs” that will be published in the Sunday, September 8, 2013 edition of the Kitsap Sun.
And don’t forget, there are no winners or losers, I just pick a few photos and ramble on about why they stand-out to me for various reasons.
New challenge will be posted later this week- and it’s a good one (the subject matter is the most popular of all the Frames challenges EVER) so get those cameras ready!
“Exhaustion” by Terry Cooper
Terry stumbled across this youngster napping in a wheelbarrow in one of the barns and captured a great candid moment bathed in beautiful light.
“Reboot” by Lea Bessler
My favorite part about this photo is that after four days of covering the Fair, this is the exact weary look that my fellow photographer Larry Steagall had on his face by the end of the week. Besides the great expression, one that everyone who has been at the Fair has most likely experienced after too many rides and too many elephant ears, I also like how Lea captured the blur of the carousel behind the subject which gives the viewer a chance to infer that it was possibly the twirling of lights and horses that caused this youngster’s expression.
“Kaleidoscope of Colors” by Bryan Flynn
We had a few shots entered of carnival rides all lit up and spinning away but this shot of Bryan’s was my favorite because of the composition of the two rides together in the same frame. The image also has gorgeous color as well as a nice use of blurred motion.
