It is with great pleasure that we announce our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners along with 14 other honorable mentions.
We also have a special winner this time – The Mentor’s Choice image has been chosen by our Guest Mentor Gurunathan Ramakrishnan.
So here is the result… The winner is – Md Enamul Kabir !
[In-Street Review] Eye contact has been generally considered as a no-no in street photography because it appears to be disturbing the spontaneity. However, this month’s theme ‘eye contact’ was chosen to break the rule and make it challenging for the participants. Eye as is known to be ‘the window to the soul’, can add a lot of drama to the image in the mind of the viewer. This image has just done that. The intense look of the cat questions the viewer and transmits emotions. The composition is so well thought out making the eye contact such an important element here that the viewer’s eye travels from the eyes of the main cat to the other sets of eyes thus forming a triangle. This image tells a story. A connection is immediately set up with the viewer. The creative play of light is adding to this beautiful image.
Second place goes to Manish Jaisi !
Third place goes to Sanjoy Banerjee !
And the Mentor’s Choice goes to Vipin Singh !
[Guest Mentor’s Review] Composition is spot on here. The beautiful angle of the building and the positioning of the animal just blends to give the right perspective. Also like the way architecture of the building and form of the animal combines. Most importantly perfect for the theme ‘ Eye contact’.
Finally, here are other 14 Honorable Mentions !
Many congratulations to all the respective photographers! Cheers!
