Results Mini Challenge #305: Revisit
First, I want to thank you all for participating in this mini. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your entries and reading the stories that came with them. With travel curtailed for many of us, it is especially welcome to see the places you would like to revisit! I found myself especially drawn to images that convey depth. I am going to comment on one or more photos from each of you.
@JAG I really enjoyed seeing your panoramic photo of the Grand Canyon. (I was there a few years ago and know that it can be difficult to capture its beauty). But I also love the beauty and mood of the photo you took in Italy. I think that one is my favorite.
@Cavalier I have now added the Palouse area to my list of places to visit someday. That gentle landscape looks beautiful. I love your capture of the beauty of Yellowstone National Park!
@grandmaR Your photo of the Fisherman’s Bar stands out for me. I love the way one fisherman is standing barefoot while another makes eye contact with you, the photographer.
@DavidRGillespie I can see why you would want to revisit all of these places! While I appreciate all three, it is the photo of the kayaker in Chile that draws me in. It is partly the elements of your composition and partly the way the kayaker is pausing to savor the view. Fun to see the two photos of the tree on Spring Island as well! Thank you for sharing this beauty with us.
@dlscott56 Your photo of Prague is my favorite one of your entries but I also appreciate the beauty of your capture of Yosemite. I would like to see a little more of the sky in the frame but love the atmosphere.
@pegelli All three of these landscapes are amazing, so it is difficult to choose a favorite. I love your image from Tuscany but I keep coming back to your gorgeous capture of Cotes-d’Amor! I am intrigued by the house between those massive rocks—all reflected in the water.
@sarasphotos It was hard to choose a favorite but I settled on your photo of the hotel in Les-Eyzies, France (with its back story). I love the details you’ve captured here and it looks like a charming place to stay - with or without those memories!
@slpollett I can see why you would like to return to Zion National Park! I like all three of your entries but I really like the depth of this composition from your first visit to this park.
@Ikbart I find your shot of the redwood forest in northern California mesmerizing. I can see why you want to go back.
With so many fine entries - and some great background stories - it was very hard to narrow this down!
Third place goes to @DavidRGillespie - Kayaker in Chile
Second place goes to @Cavalier – Yellowstone National Park
First place goes to @pegelli - Cotes-d’Amor
Congratulations, Pieter! Looking forward to what you choose for the theme of the next challenge!
