FRAMES: Photo Challenge #76: Repetition- STAND-OUTS
May 2nd, 2014 by Meegan Reid
Lovely job on the Repetition challenge!
I know I say this every time, but I loved seeing the different
subjects and shooting styles that were showcased.
Remember, there aren’t any winners or losers, I just pick a few
photos and ramble on about why they “Stand-out” to me for various
The following photos will be published in the Sunday, May 11th.
edition of the Kitsap Sun and your next challenge is
Skipping Rocks by Stacy M. Lynch
I absolutely love this image. Not only does it showcase repetition
in the ripples of the stone skips and in the two pilings standing
sentry-like in the background, but also the light and color of the
scene is just beautiful. The whole image has a lovely tranquil feel
Boots by Constanze Stocks
Without those boots, whose white laces also mimic the lines of the
pavement, this would just be a photo of well…lines on the
pavement…boring. Yet add a person in a pair of boots and compose it
in an interesting way and the image becomes a stand-out. I really
like this shot and think it was well thought out and executed
Lotsa Leaves by Steve Johnson
I like how the clovers fills the frame except for the little bit of
brown dirt skimming the bottom of the frame, which breaks up the
overwhelming “greenness” of the shot. Also, right in the middle
there is a random lighter green plant poking up through the mound
of clover, it’s very subtle but a nice find, kind of like a
“Where’s Waldo” moment in the plant world.
Not Forgotten by Jim Michelinie
I like the composition of this shot and how the headstones run
diagonally from corner to corner in the frame. While the repetition
of the headstones is great it is that splash of color in the
ribbon, plant and small flag almost buried in the snow that gives
the image a wonderful focal point.
Ball On by Adriana Cruz
This is a nice still-life of a game of tennis. I like the focus on
the ball in the foreground and how the multitude of balls trail off
into the background.
Sail Frames by Deena Alley
This frame has lovely vibrant colors, great contrast and portrays a
great scene of matching sailboats frames by matching pilings.
