Every so often people submit photos with a bit of cheek. Sometimes the risk taking pays off, other times it doesn’t. This time it has. The theme for October was “explore”, and, according to the judges, the winner could not have captured it any better. The photo submitted by psychopyko literally defined what it means to explore. The judges could not deny that the photo matched the theme, but what they really appreciated was the simple yet effective technique applied. They noted how the rule of thirds was easily identified through the spine of the book and the change in sharp and soft focus. Well done psychopyko.

The judges thought the photo of the Tibetan palace was something they would like to explore and the angle of the photo represented the magnificent architecture of an ancient time.

The other photo the judges thought was worth mentioning, was the exploring children watching the sun set after a big day out. The photographer’s ability to capture the vibrant colours of a dwindling day, produced an amazing photo. Well done Max.

On to November with the theme “Cry”. The tag for the theme is “lmg_cry”. Below is a slide show of all photos submitted for October (a staggering 78: competition record).
