1st Place: Gray Benko

What a fun, cheerful week full of amazingly beautiful Yellow Entries! We found ourselves grinning from ear to ear as we viewed the bright, sunny entries.

We had so much fun featuring Joe Photo as our Guest Photographer Judge this week.  He has a unique and creative artistry that has blown us away! One of our favorite quotes from his interview was: “Shoot the images that make you the most happy”.  Love that!

Congratulations to Gray Benko whose photo was chosen as Joe Photo’s very favorite.  Joe wrote: This image is so beautiful. I love the baby’s sweet expression and the monochromatic color palette. The “Yellow” theme really pops from the white and gray tones. The image is evenly lit with good highlights and shadows. I love the brightness of the image without the over saturating of the color. The diagonal lines of the floor boards offer a dynamic element that informs the context of the environment the portrait was shot in. I love the juxtaposition of the rough wood and bed frame with the soft skin and fabric. Well done!

2nd Place: Dani Girl

Great moment capturing the joy of puddles and childhood. I love that the childs reflection is included in the composition.

3rd Place: Tonya Holsey

Clean, contemporary, beautifully exposed child’s portrait. Love the body language of the feet.

4th Place: Sacha Blackburne

Charming child’s portrait. Soft and full of wonder.

5th Place: Danielle Nicole

Fashionable little girl in a flower field of yellow. I love that she’s not smiling at the viewer and her glasses draw you right into her eyes.

6th Place: Casey Rose

Simple, peaceful, soft expression. I like the shallow focus on her eyes.

7th Place: Allison MacPhail

Awesome expression of joy. Lots of yellow and nice curved, leading lines.

8th Place: Jackie Jean

Great expressions. Intimate and soft.

9th Place: inMi photography

Sweet child’s portrait. Great eye expression.

10th Place: Dana Suggs

Peaceful, playful expression. Soft and beautiful.

Each week we (Angie & Amy) like to show off some of our favorite entries as well! Here are our picks…
