  • What a cool moment! This is a fabulous example taking a picture in the right time. The reaction of both is adorable. Also the way you composed your photograph. The light-situation looks natural and fits perfectly to this scene. The contrasts and the black and white tones look harmonious. Love it!! Congratulation to the winner of this I-Shot-It child competition and Merry Christmas!!

  • Thanks for selecting this picture. It was taken early morning of 2 nov at the Oaxaca cemetery during Dia de los Muertos, (Day of the Dead). Families stay whole night at the cemetery to wecome the spirits of there beloved ones. They strongly believe that they will return on this night and bring them flowers and food. This was taken at a time most people where leaving. So I was very lucky to capture this boy in his orange clothes alone without any other people around.

  • An everyday black and white moment of a young boy with a special facial expression. He is neither smiling at all when you took this photo nor angry. Maybe he is lost in his own thoughts. That´s what makes this picture so special for me. I also like the special angle you have chosen and the good sense for composition!

I've been practicing Thorsten Overgaard's "always wear a camera" statement, and was very excited when the opportunity arrived to capture the magic of this moment!

  • A Portrait of a young girl in her uniform. The way she stands in the centre of the picture is interesting to look at. She looks self-confident and proud, very well dressed with her shiny white blouse. Her surrounding is the complete opposite, chaotic and messy. I like the differences and the way you create you picture. Great job!

  • Mother´s love surrounded by a beautiful natural light. The eyes of the baby look directly to the observer of this photograph. That makes a bigger emotional connection when you look at it. Well done!

  • A beautiful black and white portrait of a young girl. I like the way she looks and also the way she puts her hands together. The light situation supports it in a great way!

  • This is very interesting to look at. The girl does not recognize the photographer at all. She is lost in her own thoughts. Her hat is too big and her red dress is striking. There are many details and your timing as a photographer was perfect!

  • A photograph that could be from a movie. It conveys a mood between wanderlust and homesickness. Melancholic and beautiful!
