Who won our Portrait comp for December?
Huge congratulations to Javier Taveras, winner of the December 'Portrait' competition with his entry 'Dr Rod'.
Nearly 1000 images were entered in the monthly competition, with so many great shots shortlisted we couldn't fit them all here!
This month's guest judge, landscape pro photographer Drew Hopper, chose Javier's image as the overall winner:
Not only is Javier's portrait a standout shot from the other entries by being different and unusual, it also provokes a response. There's a story to be told and questions to be answered. Javier has composed his subject beautifully and neatly with great rule of thirds in a difficult enviornment. Despite the scene being cluttered he was able to draw attention to his model while telling a story. An overall strong image and great narrative.
This month's People's Choice winner, with more than 400 Facebook likes, was Robin Yong with his image 'Arbore sisters'
Huge congratulations to Javier and Robin who have each won a Zkin Getaway Obia or Cetus bag valued at over $180, thanks to ZKIN Australia.
