Javier Arcenillas from Spain has won $3,540.00 and a Leica M MONOCHROM body worth $8000.00. That's a big prize! Looking through all of the entries, this photo made us stop and look. It's an unusual composition and an unusual moment. It's not easy to take a photo that grabs the viewers attention, but this one does.
Daniel Clouser ( 500px.com ) from the US has won $716.00 with this superb city shot. I love how the buildings have reflections of other building, and then there are more reflections in the foreground. It makes this city architecture shot very interesting to look at.
Congratulations to all of the winners and many thanks to the judges at Friends Of Harvey Milk Art Center.
Jamie Zink from the US has won $794.00. Looking at Jamie's Instagram photos, I can see that he loves taking photos in the fog. This photo has many elements which make it an excellent landscape photo: the beam of light, the rocky coastline, the birds, and the atmospheric fog. I love the way the sea and sky merge together.
Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 147 entries, and to the judge Duncan MacArthur for choosing 10 winning shots.
Congratulations to Chris Kirschbaum ( chriskirschbaumphotography.com ) from Oxford, Iowa, USA. This is a photo that really grabs your attention. What happened before and after this moment? The low camera position is perfect for this action shot. I love the natural expression of joy on his daughter's face. Fantastic! Chris has won $794.00.
Congratulations to Angee ( 2bseenphotography.com ) from Columbia, Missouri who has won $810.00 and a Leica X2 Camera worth $2000. This photo has atmospheric lighting, and great timing. The low camera position brings us to the level of the boy and dog. The photo has a timeless quality that will give this type of photo endless appeal.
Congratulations to Chris Gardner from the US who has won $894.00 with a super photo of his 2½ year old daughter, Isla. The hair shades the face from direct sunlight which is perfect for this natural and timeless looking portrait. When I look at photos of myself taken in the early 1970's when I was I child I look at them and think, 'Was that really me?'. Perhaps one day Isla will do the same. She is very lucky to have a father who is such a skilled photographer.
Thank you to everyone who entered one of the 197 entries. And we'd also like to thank the judge Lisa Alessandra Kutzelnig for choosing twenty of the finest photos which must have been difficult as there were so many excellent photos.
Congratulations to Andrea Spence ( facebook ) from the US who has won $868.00. Coastline photos can be so different from one day to another depending on the weather and the light. This photo captures a time when there is lots of movement and even though this is a single moment in time I can imagine the rolling waves and seagulls circling in the wind.
Well done to all of the winners and thank you to everyone who entered a photo. And of course we'd like to thank the judge Duncan MacArthur.
Congratulations to Rob Palmer ( www.falconphotos.com ) from the US. Rob has won $758.00. An amazing photo! A perfect bat shot! I can't imagine anyone taking a more impressive photo of a bat. There were many excellent wildlife photos in this competition from professional wildlife photographers. To win this competition the photo needed something very special. Well done Rob!
Thank you to everyone who entered. Congratulations to all of the winners. And thank you to the judge Duncan MacArthur.
Congratulations to Héctor Millar ( www.hectormillar.com ) from Chile who has won $768.80. Héctor has won a number of I-SHOT-IT competitions in different categories. A very talented photographer with an eye for a winning shot. To win this competition takes more than just a photo of a pretty dog. It has to be special. It has to be original. Perhaps something the judge has never seen before. This photo has got what it takes!
Thank you to everyone who took part. I wish we could give prizes to everyone. Many thanks to our judge Illona Haus.
Congratulations to Eilina Oertelt from Germany who has won $652.00. The photo has patterned beach and sky that lead our eyes to the friendly looking horse in the centre. It's great to see a creative wide-angle lens photo win.
Thank you to everyone who entered, and to our judge Illona Haus.
