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 reasons.

The following photos will be published in the Sunday, May 11th. edition of the Kitsap Sun and your next challenge is “Festival Fun”.

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 to it.

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 nicely.

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.
