Post image for Photo Challenge Winner | Bust a Gut!

This week’s photo challenge made us all giggle…it truly was great fun going through the photo submissions!  We all get so busy in our day-to-day lives of work, home, children, etc, that it’s always a great reminder to stop and just enjoy the little things! Let’s all come back to this particular week and browse all of the fantastic entries when we have a few extra moments. 😉 Deal?

Special thanks to this week’s Guest Photographer Judge, Jenny Sun…we’re sure she had a ball going through the entries!

1st Place: Nik and the Trip

I love how this is a very candid capture, and the incredibly tight cropping gives a beautiful sense of intimacy, closeness, and focus on what seems to be a very close relationship of mother and son. The processing of this image in b&w enhances the mood, and is done very well. As soon as I saw this image, I loved it. And kept going back to it and thinking of it even after looking at hundreds of entries. I don’t know anything about the subjects, but the photo draws me in and already tells such a candid story of the relationship shown.

2nd Place: Jennifer Kohls

the expressions on all 4 girls is beautiful and so joyful! I love how they are all lying down and in a circle/star shape – its different from the safe shot of all 5 girls standing in a line.

3rd Place: Lupe1515

absolutely beautiful candid capture of the two girls. I love how the younger girl is resting with her arms under her head. Its so relaxed, natural, and real :)

4th Place: Devoe Creative

this is beautifully and simply styled, and at the same time very difficult to capture. An expression like that is not seen often, and that is what made this photo unique enough for top 5.

5th Place: Daniela Curl

gorgeous natural moment between the two lovers. I would have liked to see a tighter crop to really give focus on the expression – that would have pushed this photo a few higher spots.

6th Place: Petina Hope

7th Place: Headshots and Whatnots

8th Place: Carrie Saindon

9th Place: Sharon Covert

10th Place: Shannon Backstrom
