549th Show & Tell Competition: Hope and Sorrow - WINNER

Post Sun May 03, 2020 1:42 am


Thanks everyone for your entries. Looking at the pictures made me wonder if it is presumptuous to think that we could know someone's internal emotions from an image. But a goal of photography is to tell a story in the work, and the image should convey something to the viewer beyond a "that's nice" sentiment. The pictures chosen here worked for me, which I admit is subjective. Final note- the gorilla shot by Jola D. was awesome, but I asked for humans this time around!

A few honorable mentions:

Expecting sisters, Markus Grompe:

Little girl, Marty, luxun54:

Lonely in the coffee shop, Marisa Livet. If this isn't sorrow, I don't know what is:

Third place, Peter Shulz: A technical masterpiece, great lighting, composition, and sharp. The monotone works for me. Clearly the young girl is hoping for something.

Second place, Walter Koenig: This image captures a weathered face of someone who has seen it all, perhaps not a lot of it good, but still has a sparkle in his eye. I appreciate the sharpness and high quality of the image itself.
Image

First Place, Marisa Livet: To me, the most impactful of the images were of children. This young girl doesn't look happy. Knowing children, her family could be just out of the frame, or she could be experiencing true loss. I don't always go for rough framing, but in this case it works very well; a nice creative touch. I also liked the fortuitous repeat of yellow in the image, which probably caught Marisa's eye in the first place. Great job Marisa, your turn!

I feel rewarded that you chose two of my photos, Ken, among so many worthy entries. I'm not sure my work deserves such praise.

I'm never completely happy with what I do in all creative fields, photography, writing and so on. I can only thank you for encouraging me.

I have enjoyed this competition, because I could see many photos which really conveyed something deep, both visually and emotionally.

I'm thinking of a theme for the next competition, that I'll post soon.
