This week was was truly amazing…so many interpretations of “Scenic BB&W” to inspire us in our photographic endeavors! It was awesome to see how a beautiful scenic background (whether from nature or interesting architecture) could add so much to a portrait.
We were completely honored to have the talented Deb Schwedhelm as our Guest Photographer judge this week. Her work is beautiful and her story of little Max made us all weep! Hopefully, it inspired many of us to reach out and share our talent to help someone else in need as well. Deb said of this week’s winner, Jenny: First, let me share that I loved all the entries!! There was such a creative use of incorporating subject and scene together. I also want to share that I really struggled between first and second place. If I could give a tie for first place, I would. Heather Nan‘s entry had such an interesting definition and use of scenery — really an outstanding and intriguing photograph. But I was so drawn to the story of Jenny‘s entry — the composition, the dog spotting something, the girl with the gun, the assumption of a country scene. All the elements (subjects and scene) worked so perfectly together to create an awesome story in one single image. Thank you to all for your wonderful submissions!
Each week we (Angie & Amy) like to show off some of our favorite entries as well! Here are our picks…
