Results Contest : A touch of colour

Published by Yvette Depaepe
Published the 15
th of March 2022


Selective colour photography is a process of photo manipulation in which a photographer will convert a photograph from colour to black & white yet leaving an "accent" or partial colour in a defined area of the image. Wonderful examples of this technique were submitted.

The winners with the most votes in this contest are:

1st place: Dieter Reichelt 
2nd place: Ruth Franke
3rd place : Bjorn Emanuelson 

Congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions and thanks to all the participants in the contest 'A touch of colour'.


'Silence' is the currently running theme.
Expressing the inexpressible ... pure silence comes closest of all. That’s why from time to time we must wrap ourselves around our cameras. The quiet of photography and the silence of the finished photograph are eloquent in the way that surpasses all words.

Get inspired by the article 'The Sound of Silence' published last Friday. Click here to read it and admire a compilation of silent photographs.  

This contest will end at midnight on Sunday the 27th of March 2022.
The sooner you upload your submission the more chance you have to gather the most votes.
