By Santiago Pascual Buye.
This work is extraordinary; it really drew my attention when I browsed all of the entries briefly for the first time. Symbolism and poetic atmosphere in this picture creates a strong loneliness yet calming mood to the audience. The dead center composition and gentle color touch in this picture works really well in this moody presentation.
"I wish I was special" by Martin Stranka.
This is absolutely breathtaking story telling image. I love the way Martin elaborated his vision in this piece, so poetic with lots of emotions attached. The choosing to apply unusual composition works really well as it added mysterious feeling to this dark mood piece. Perfect lighting and awesome editing are two strong points in this marvelous piece as well.
"Sun go down" by Terry F.
This work is so brilliant, demonstrating perfect shooting technique, well balanced composition, and awesome editing skill. I love the model’s gesture and the author’s idea not to expose the model’s face entirely. The two things are the key factor in creating mood and story in this work, since it provokes audience attention to focus on what inside the model’s mind. The mood of this work really brings loneliness as well as romantic and serenity atmosphere to anyone who watches this image.
