  • The contrast between this fascinating world of strange arranged elements, and then a boy consumed playing in his own world … this is captivating. Perfect tonality with the contrast between the two worlds. This is the winner of the Black and White photo competition. Congratulations.

  • Simple photograph, but then it make you wonder if he is a tough guy or maybe a gangster. Simple means to great storytelling.

  • First of all a big thank you to the "I shot It" team. The scene took place in Corsica where a "mousse party" was taking place. The child seemed completely absorbed by his universe of white bubbles. I was working with my Leica M240 and a Summicron 35mm lens. Speed: 1/60, diaphragm F: 4 and 100O ISO. All processed with Lightroom software.

  • Deserted game. There used o be some life here, and maybe they had to go to school or they’re home having dinner, Very moody photo of life without any people in it.

  • There is something as elegant as a French fashion catwalk about this - we notice as we look closer - aged lady in a rural town. Great light and tonality.

  • Intelligent creatures are never bored as they say. This cat manages to have a great game with not many remedies. Reminds us of Salvador Dali for some reason. Fun capture, good timing.
