Post image for Photo Challenge Winners | Beautiful Eyes

1st Place: Katannblue

This week has been AWESOME! We had close to a record-breaking amount of entries this week! Eyes are such a beautiful theme to focus on, and we saw some amazing entries this week. There was a wide variety of eye colors, some we had never seen before! And there was a wide variety of processing techniques. We definitely saw some new things this week!

This week’s Guest Photographer Judge, Erin Wheeler, said of the winning photo by Katannblue: Over and over again this image keeps pulling me in. There is something so timeless and classic about this photo. It could have been taken yesterday or 50 years ago. Just looking into his beautiful eyes I can imagine so many stories that could be told. There is something so magical here. I love the simplicity of childhood. The personality of this image just shines.

2nd Place: Sarah Tyler

Beautiful and breathtaking. Her expression is just priceless.

3rd Place: Emily Jarvis

Another beautiful image. The lighting and the expression is stunning. Another image where so many stories could be told.

4th Place: Kaooavdpa

5th Place: Wicked One

6th Place: Kelly West Mars

7th Place: Allix B Photography
