Winner: Industrial Sprinkler
-First World Problem: Conceptual Challenge - (Black and White + A white Border) Challenge finished on Sunday, 15 May 2016 The concept is about insignificant things or animals being given an unproportionally grand attention or treatment, that it obviously doesn't deserve. Please do not interpret it literally. Take a non human dayshot. Process the photo into BW format (preferably grey-scale) and add an elegant white border. My keyword suggestions - too grand for its scale, mundane, yet eyeball grabbing, surreal, pop.
Winner: Angkor Warriors
in a line Challenge finished on Sunday, 15 May 2016 create an interesting, standout photo of multiple objects placed in a line and use DOF so that the items are not in the same focal plane (i.e. a picture of six dolls in a line going away from camera where the focus point is on the second doll and the dolls/space moving away from that doll become increasingly out of focus). see examples for more clarification. the trick will be to come up with a shot that stands out in a crowd that has similar composition and technique. BE CREATIVE, HAVE FUN.
