  • jeff (postaljeff)

    Just found out is been included here. Thanks so much!

    • Congratulations on being selected Jeff! Great photo 🙂

  • Niru Karia

    Thanks Emil for sharing incredible images. Keep us inspiring.

  • Nice photos but I comment that much of the “creative” effect was done by an app – it’s not like the photographer started with a great composition and edited it using basic tools. Nowadays anybody can download apps like Hipstamatic, Pixlr, etc. and create eye catching pseudo-art. I suppose if the end result is visually appealing then that’s all that counts.

    • Hi Anthony, you’re right that some of the photos have had creative effects applied using apps, but in my opinion they’re all still great compositions and any effects applied have enhanced the image. A photo that was badly composed or badly lit to start with would never look good, no matter how many effects you applied. It’s the combination of interesting subject matter, thoughtful composition, good lighting and exposure, as well as effects that suit the image, that make all of the above great photos with strong visual appeal. App effects can definitely ruin an image, but when applied subtly or with creative flair they can really enhance a photo. Exactly the same thing can be done in the darkroom with film photography to create interesting and artistic effects. Like you say if the result is visually appealing, that’s what counts – although photography and art is very subject so what one person likes another may not, but I see that as a good thing as it encourages variety and diversity. I always like to hear other’s opinions about photography as everyone thinks differently and it makes a great debate! 🙂
