Result Contest: Road Shots

by Yvette Depaepe 
Published the 19th of August 2021

Nothing captures better the magic of the open road better than … well, the open road.
In the forest, city, mountains, deserts or at night, you can find everywhere interesting sinuous shapes of roads. As for the composition, sometimes it is a good idea to start the road from a corner up to the middle or the other corner. It will appear larger in the starting corner and thinner at the end.  Enjoy the 10 best submissions.

The winners with the most votes are:

1st place: Holger Goehler 
2nd place: Lydia Jacobs  
3rd place: Markus Auerbach   

Congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions and thanks to all the participants in the contest 'Road shots'.


'High key photography' is the currently running contest theme.
High key photographs mostly are light and have a feel-good mood to them.
High key photography is not so much about camera settings as it is about the light. Lights and more lights, that's how you do high key photography. It's all about balancing the light ratio.

This contest will end at midnight on Sunday the 29th of August 2021.
The sooner you upload your submission the more chance you have to gather the most votes.

Good luck to all the participants.
