“What I really loved about this photo by julief is not only the composition and colours but the story of a purposeful almost pinpoint pattern of receding lighting strikes from the many “hair-raised” and seemingly “shocked” trees. It seems Zeus may have been in a light-hearted mood that day. Congratulations on your fantastic capture!” – John
Congratulations to the following Runners Up:
“Antonio_Leao’s “Friday 13″ photo brings me back to the psychological notion of how colour, or the lack of, can influence the mood of the observer. This photo is no exception. The moody background atmospherics coupled with the hue-textured foreground offers a nice transition from innocence to something more sinister which really creates a mood of an impending positive or negative consequence. Congrats!” – John
“This photo by RileyEva blew me away (and luckily not the girl in the photo). The choice of monochrome added a historical and almost timeless context to the photo (a bit too apropos given the recent “Frankenstorm Sandy” that hit the US and Canada). Although a composite, it is a convincing one. The “battle of wills” narrative is quite intriguing and works very well here. Congrats!” – John
