PS: Winners, please send me a facebook message to claim your prizes!
Winner: Tatiana Vargas
Prize: IMAGENOMICS Portraiture Retouching Software
Why we selected: We were really impressed how far you pushed creative boundaries. You were the only person who photographed a man for the theme of lace, and furthermore, it was a successful image. It is quiet and well-executed. Nice image!
Winner: Maryanne Gobble
Runner Up: Tatiana Vargas
Prize: Fashion Flair for Portrait and Wedding Photography (book), Creative Studio Lighting DVD with Lindsay Adler
Runner up Prize: WPPI U registration for New Jersey.
Why we selected:
- Maryann: We love the clean, graphic nature of this image and how the subject's hat mirror's the structures. It has high impact and interest! Great job!
- Runner Up: We love the repeated shapes of the hay bales, and the bold color of the cape. It drapes beautifully on the hay, and creates great movement/leading lines in the photograph.
Winner: Samantha Smith
Prize: Admission to After Dark Kansas City (Value $500), 16×24 Miller’s Print Wrap
Why We Selected: When I think of helmets I think of a really aggressive and hard props. By adding lace to the helmet you make it an entirely different take on the concept. It is beautiful and can make for a great beauty image!
