Update 9-9-2013 ===================================================
The image below, “When Worlds Collide”, won Second Place in the Digital category of my photo club competition tonight. One of the judges comments was that the shot had a lot of impact which was why I decided to enter it instead of the other shot. Thanks to all those who gave their input to help me decide which shot to enter. ==================================================================
It’s time for me to get ready for the next monthly challenge for my photo club. Right now I am in a quandary because I can’t decide between two different pictures for the challenge. Maybe you can help me.
The first picture is from the oil and water shots I took a few weeks ago.
The second shot is one I took last year in downtown Atlanta at Centennial Park.
Which do you think is best for the challenge topic? Let me know right away if you can since I only have a week before the contest.
My view is that the oil and water has a lot of impact since it is unusual and I love the colors. The fountain shot fits the topic and I really like the way the kid is just lost in thought and the texture of the water. It seems that there is a story there that draws the viewer into the scene. I am just not sure the shot is strong enough for the challenge.
Thanks for any comments you wish to leave. Until next time —
