First Place For CITY By Maurizio Zanetti

The overall composition in this is beautiful. The wood in the window divides the space perfectly… with the graphic on one side and the man playing the piano on the other. Very nicely seen. We are clearly voyeurs, out on the street looking into a studio window. The only only distraction is the light glare i the upper right quadrant. It’s a shame that the artist didn’t remove it.

A wonderful clear ‘Night City’ image that captures the feeling of a ‘take out’ dinner after a hard day at work…

Landscape – First Place – By These Evil Things

A landscape consumed with evocative lighting that provokes much intrigue and anticipation. And what’s unique about this image is that we feel as though we’re “in” the landscape… as opposed to observing and admiring from a distance. Definitely the #1 choice for this category.

This is a beautiful evocative image that reminds us that there are places in the world where, at certain times of the year, the sun does not completely set. And the air is truly felt in this one…

This has a nice atmosphere to it … the fact that she’s dressed up suggests that she’s going out. The blurriness gives a sense of movement and fast pace. And her expression leads us to believe that she’s lost in thought and reflection. All of these elements lends beautifully to the theme and feel of “night.”

 

People – Runner Up – By Petyr Campos

This is a wonderful and moving capture. The only distraction that kept it from making #1 choice was the parking meter. It’s visually disruptive to the overall mood… and it takes our focus off of the man. Too bad….

Congratulations to all the winners and runner ups. Thank you judges for selecting my image and thank you AppWhisper for hosting this competition. I am very honored to be selected as a runner up. Big congrats to Natali Prosvetova

These are amazing photographs that prove the power is in the image, not in the tool used to capture it. I disagree with a couple of comments: I did not find the parking meter distracting in Petyr Campos’ photo and in fact did not even notice it until it was pointed out…the man sitting is what I saw and focused on…it’s just another element in the picture that is incident to the scene. The second is the light over the mirror in Maurizio Zanetti’s capture…in a strange sort of way it serves as another connection point in the invisible lines connecting elements in the photograph.
