We are excited to announce the winners of the final 2016 monthly photography competition.
It was a fantastic end to a year of great photography on the blog with over 5000 images submitted into the competition. Many thanks to everyone that entered, we are working hard on making 2017 even better.
December’s theme was togetherness with the 1st place prize being a Tom Tom Action Camera and four runners up prizes of an Integral 64GB Action Camera Micro SDXC with 4k recording capabilities. Many thanks to Integral for sponsoring the last 2016 competition.
Overall Winner Lulanian – Pair
I really like the way this image is framed, it’s as if we are peering into the private lives of a top and trousers through our fence. This is nicely composed and an interesting take on the theme of “Togetherness”.
1. ErikSvec – Timi & Zia
A wonderful portrait of a horse and it’s owner in a beautiful sun-kissed setting. I really like to the eye contact from both subjects. Very strong!
2. Liam Yeo – Bitter rivals but best of friends
Lovely image and nicely composed with the line on the pitch leading your eye to where the football is.
3. Jessie Luc – Togetherness
It won’t take you long to work out that these are the best of friends, the photographer must know the subjects very well or he is an expert at making people relax in his/her company. Good job!
4. Stephen Ash – All together now
Nice image with so much more potential. I would like to have seen less darkness at the bottom of the image and more sky. Perhaps going closer with a wider angle would have worked or even using a longer lens further away!
