Results contest : Forests

by Yvette Depaepe
Published the 2nd od January 2023


When shooting in the forest, you have a lot of leading lines at your disposal. Lines and paths in the compostion can draw attention in a natural way. Take advantage of the early morning light and mist, if you can. The many submissions did.  Look by yourself and enjoy !
The winners with the most votes in this contest are :

1st place : Giuseppe Satriani  
2nd place : bahram pourshahbazi
3rd place :  Rolf Endermann   

Congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions and thanks to all the participants in the contest 'Forests'


is the currently running theme.
Pastel colours have enough white mixed into them to take away the saturation and turn them into a pale verion of colours. Because of their delicacy, it's better to photograph pastels in soft diffused light.

This contest will end at midnight on Sunday the 15th of January 2023.
The sooner you upload your submission the more chance you have to gather the most votes.
