Lost in the Dance

Monthly Challenge – Liquids

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 —

  1. Lost in the dance, I think it’s a one time picture, the children in the water makes it special. 🙂

  2. I like the fountain shot. The oil and water shot is impactful and I like the colors, but when I look at the fountain shot I don’t so much see spouts of water as phantoms surrounding the kids.
