We are very happy to see many images with some innovative interpretation of the monthly theme. It was a tough and exciting job for us to choose the best ones from so many great images.
It is with great pleasure that we announce our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners along with 10 other honorable mentions.
We also have a special winner this time – The Mentor’s Choice image has been chosen by our Guest Mentor Arindam Thokder.
So here is the result… The winner is – Sachin Chauhan !
[In-Street Review] This month’s theme was a bit tough and tricky one as in most of our images we may have either layers or a bit of juxta or it may fall under the borderline. What we were looking for was how does an image stand out? Is it because of the thoughtful use of form like juxta and/or layers or due to the sensible use of strong content that can really hold our attention in terms of story, ambiguity, mood or emotion. In this image the mood created by the foggy, mysterious night is really fascinating which holds our attention in the very beginning. Then we start looking at the image and start wondering what a lone man is doing at that deserted station! The red signal may suggest that he is waiting for departure but time has not yet come or is he waiting for someone to arrive! These unanswered questions add more mystery to the situation. Author’s sensible use of minimalistic approach really works here as it creates a sense of isolation and solitude that takes the image to another level.
Second place goes to Afryan !
Third place goes to Joy Mukhopadhyay !
And the Mentor’s Choice goes to Nasar Husami !
[Guest Mentor’s Review] My Selection process is quite Simple – The Image must inspire me, the image should be something I would feel proud of if it’s been captured by me, and I should be able to look at the image for hours without being bored. So, taking these into consideration, my winner for the #NoJuxtaNoLayer theme is the “Desi Superman” by Nasar Husani. I liked the snapshot approach in this photograph, so in that way, the flash does not bother me much. You can read more about Snapshot photography here – the-art-of-the-
Finally, here are other Ten Honorable Mentions !
Many congratulations to all the respective photographers! Cheers!
