What The Focused On Photography,

Up Close {Portrait} 

Challenge Winners!!!!!



Last weeks super talented challenge winner Jonathan, of  Sparks Ignite photography, chose this weeks challenge to be Up Close {Portrait}

"Thank you to everyone that voted my image as the best of the best for the Catchlights Challenge! I want to give a big shoutout to my first born, Noah. Although I feel the image I submitted was strong, his cuteness surely secured the win for me."
-Jonathan Sparks Ignite 

 

And now for the moment you have all been waiting for!!! The winner of this weeks challenge,

Chosen by Jonathan...


 

I'm really impressed with the submissions this week. It made it extremely difficult to choose ONE winner. For the close up portrait challenge I have chosen Kimberly Sol Photography as the overall winner with this gorgeous image. It just so happens that this was also the image that received the most likes by the group.

I based this decision on the way the image made me feel. The emotion in this photo is overwhelming! I believe, as artists, the best thing we can accomplish with an image is to affect the viewer's emotions. 
The photo is also technically sound. The lighting paired with a beautiful color palette make for an extremely desirable image.  I love seeing a portrait of a stranger that I can picture on my own wall. Great shot Kimberly!!
