This weeks challenge:
Chosen by Tez:
Why Tez chose this photo: “There are so many things about this photograph that I love; the lighting, the crop and composition, the contrast between old and new, the sharp focus and depth of field…but the main thing that makes me keep wanting to look at it again and again, is the fabulous use of complementary colours…a really stunning image!”
Congrats! Please feel free to grab a “fact: I’m awesome … #1 winner” button below. Because: you ARE awesome! And, thank you SO much for participating!
Why Tez chose this photo: “This capture is all about the choice of angle for me…it just screams ”I spy with my little eye…a dinosaur out for a stroll!” I love the repetetive natural textures, the vintage/seventies wash, and how the subject is still clearly the focus without being IN focus… but most of all, I fell in love with the determined walk of that sweet little dinosaur <3”

Why Tez chose this photo: “This portrait manages to do all that a portrait should do; with one little shutter click, it captures a whole personality that makes you feel like you know the person in the shot. I see mischief and playfulness, but mostly a whole lot of ”all-boy sweetness” with a love for oddly bumpy things and creatures…with a sparkle in the eye and those freckles that are to die for :D”
Why Tez chose this photo: “A classic ”Fall Photo”, that grabs your eye with it’s lighting and colour. I love how the colours of the leaves repeat themselves in the face and jacket, with the distinct exception of the torquoise. His perfectly framed face is so alive with the crisp air and the fun of fall, it makes you feel like you’re right there with him.”
Why Tez chose this photo: “My heartstrings were seriously tugged as soon as I saw this adorable little guy…even though it’s a posed shot, it still managed to become a candid picture because of his strong personality that shines through! Beautifully composed with the path leading your eye right to the joy radiating in his face, seemingly from the happiness of having found such a ’treasure’ of nature…and, oh, those cute jeans and sneakers!!!”
