The graphic nature of the photo and the storytelling quality made this my top pick. Great
Love the silhouette and how the chairs mirror the palm trees. Perfect composition and body language.
The back row of life, where a thankless job (a job you're probably thankful for) can make for some pretty rough days. But if only he knew how much I marveled at not only his strength but the skill he has learned to be able to carry eight chairs at once. I’ll never be able to carry just one chair to the table again. I love this simple image of a massive task seemingly made simple.
The light gave this picture a painterly quality. The photographer caught each of the servers in a nice moment.
Nice dramatic light. Has a timeless feel to it.
The lighting in this image is fantastic. It’s a beautiful scene and a image that, I believe, will pass the test of time. It’s a photograph that portrays a scene that could have easily taken place 100 years ago.
I am not a big fan of the wide angle that warps the edges of your frame. I know clients don't always like that look, and think something is wrong with the photo. BUT I thought the scene captured and the angle were interesting and made this image worth noting.
This is a beautiful image filled with information. You could waste a fair amount of time merely surveying the scene, which due to the super-wide aspect appears to linger from one horizon to another like the sun on a long summer day. The composition is not obtrusive as the lens seems to unfurl the scene before us.
Stunning image and great use of shadow and light. When you can incorporate the bride AND an abstract performance shot, you have a winner. Good "seeing".
I worked under the direction of a gifted, yet difficult and demanding director of photography for more than a decade. I remember his edict that sillhouettes or signage in the back or foreground of an image must have a specific reason for being. If not, such things become a useless distracting appendage that hemorrhage a moment in an image. But here we find an illustration of my former boss’ wisdom - a silhouette that speaks to the moment and tells a story pertinent to the day. What a lovely image.
Even the blind would be able to see the beauty of this image as fire licks the ceiling from the pyre of a wedding feast. The chef, in control of this massive blaze, goes about his work undaunted by the drama that envelopes the scene. The warm glow of a thousand candles is a lantern of purposeful flame, lighting the way to a grand wedding.
