Spring Photo Contest - Vote for the Winner!

Here's the images that received the most votes in the last round! You have until midnight of Thursday, May 15th, to vote for your favorite! The winner will receive a $20 itunes gift card from NoemiPhotography! Choose Wisely...remember the theme is spring! I'm going to use this photo contest to teach a little "photography" techniques...remember it's just my opinion and it's not that I feel like the pictures were bad...I'm just giving a different way to look at them.

Photo A - I really like this picture but I would've liked to crop out the distractions in the background. I tried but it really changed the feel of the picture. I punched the colors a little and pretty much left it as is.


Photo B - I enhanced the colors...because they are so beautiful. We've talked about the rule of thirds before on the blog but, for those who are new, it basically means the photo is divided into thirds both horizontally and vertically. The corners where those divides meet are usually where your eye is drawn. I cropped the flowers out a little and moved the monument to be where the thirds meet. See if you think it makes a better picture.


Photo C - I cropped this photo too! Wanting to focus on the subject and not the forest. I also wanted to show you another example using the rule of thirds.


Photo D - I added more black to this photo so we can see more detail in the birds skin. I loved how raw and fragile this photo is and I wanted to enhance that feel!


Photo E - I cropped out the people who were not featured because they can be a distraction and I enhanced the color in the image. Always ask yourself "what am I taking a picture of?" and capture that to the fullest!


Alright those are your new choices! Vote for your favorite!
