Our first amateur photo contest is over. Their were 176 votes and the winner is Chris Belli with his photo of water on the beach.
Here is Chris’ description of the photo:
“I took this picture while in Costa Rica on my first mission trip this past summer. We had an amazing week serving the people of Costa Rica. God was on the move in many ways. On our last day, the team got to go to the beach. I was walking on the beach and noticed a nice curve when the waves were rolling into the beach. I setup my camera to capture the curve thinking it would be interesting and that the curve would draw the eye through the entire shot. I was pleased with the outcome and Im happy to have won the water photo contest. Thanks to all those who voted for me.”
Here’s the photo with information:
Exposure compensation +1/3
One of the things that I liked best about this photo was it’s simplicity. We all have a tendency to focus on the big picture and often miss the little subtleties that Chris captured in this image.
Don’t forget to submit photos for the next contest (Dramatic Sky). Look here for details:
