  • Hi, my name is Josip Miskovic and I have been following and participating in the I shoot it competitions for four years. I used the Canon 5D mark III for this photo, Riccione (Italy) where I dealt with video footage from the center of the room, even if I was there for the client who commissioned me, I carved out for a moment during the event to take the photo. In post-production it was important to choose whether to keep the original blue color or to synthesise it even more so as not to distract the spectator from the main point which is the relationship between this crowd and the light source. I want to thank the judges very much for this precious recognition! Every time I participated in I shoot it competitions (not winning) I still appreciated the judgments that were made and I must say that they have always won the photos, even very simple but with a story to tell.

  • Thank You! After seeing all the great entries I was shocked to learn I had an award. I used a Nikon300 and call this "player" the musician was at a club and after taking this I thought it would look great as a black & white. I used Exposure 6 to do just a small amount of tweaking in the shadow areas. Thanks again!!

  • Eating buildings. A hungry and determined monster, this building will be gone in some hours. Then the next one.

  • A big thank you to the Jury for the nomination, I'm very honored. I took this image named "Beast" in Deggendorf, a small city with roughly 40000 citizens in East Bavaria, Germany. During one of my photo walks I heard loud noise and saw a lot of dust coming out of a side street. So I went for and found beast in action. I shot a complete series (on my website) but this image fascinated me most because of the interaction of harsh sunlight, dust and shadows in combination with this scary machine.

  • Breathtaking suspense, and it makes one think. The narrow focus on the eyes somehow enables the viewer to be that person for a moment. Nice work!

  • First af all, thank you to the jury! I'm a part time photographer and though many subjets interest me,time has always been on my mind as a fascinating and horrifying reality. Sometimes too short, sometimes too long,time passing and especially its mark on people and things, somehow both amazes and frightens me . That's why it often appears in my pictures and inspires my creations. For this particular shot,I've used a Canon EOS R and a Canon 100mm f2.8 IS macro .
