Challenge #71 ... Contrasts of colours or tones WINNER !!
« on: March 07, 2013, 01:57:39 AM »
rogprov is the winner of the February Challenge #71 Contrasts of colours or tones. The runner up is Maxx-7D. Congratulations to both. Congratulations also to Tom F, Rex (aka TG) and wyrewader for their finalist placing.

Thanks to all for entering.

The competition is now open for discussion that I will start.
;)

rogprov's photo is simple, yet has a strong composition. The contrast of the orange (both object and color) and the sea of white makes it a strong photo...despite its simplicity.

Maxx-7D's simple B&W scenic ranges from near black to near white. I'd crop about 10% (of the height) off the top but still like the range of tones in this photo and the shapes and lines.   

Thanks to all.

Clive

Congratulations to both rogprov and Maxx-7D, great shots, very tricky to decide which I preferred of the two as both excellent but quite different images.
