Results Contest : Happiness

by Yvette Depaepe
Published the 29th of March 2023

The challenge in this contest was how to express 'Happiness' and make it appear genuine. Capturing authentic emotions is the key to create compelling images. Often, photographs taken in the familiar environment of your subjects makes them spontaneous.  The submissions are charming and full of joy.

The winners with the most votes are:
1st place : Adolfo Urrutia  
2nd place : Joao Galamba
3rd place :  Victoria Glinka (ex. Ivanova)  
Congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions and thanks to all the participants in the contest 'Happiness'


The currently running theme is 'Photographing churches outside and inside'.
Often, the church is the historical center of a place. Find a good angle or perspective. Use scale and symmetry to shoot inside. If tripods are not allowed, go manual, choose shutter speed and aperture your feel confident with and put the ISO on automatic (just a suggestion!)

This contest will end at midnight on Sunday the 9th of April 2023.
The sooner you upload your submission the more chance you have to gather the most votes.
