Week 8 WINNER 第八周周冠军
1. Submission Title 标题:Traditional umbrella (Huawei 华为EVA-L19)
Name 姓名:AungYa
LIKES 点赞:90

Description 描述:When I see this guy, I feel like he is sitting middle of White Butterflies. But actually, he is making very beautiful traditional hansmade umbrellas.

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 漂亮的画面、经典的画面,但是作者不懂构图特别是黄金分割法,他应该把趣味中心往右面移一点就好了。

Eleanor Moseman: Lovely composition, how the umbrellas frame the maker in the center. His hat mimics the umbrellas and even the completed forms in front of him begin to create a circular shape. It seems a very perfect setup and I question if the shot was created for tourists. For this week, this is my first choice as I feel it captures the essence of travel photography the most.

Guyu Syhr 谷雨: An eye catching image! The scene is very “photogenic”, like a playground for photographers. I wish I were there! You have done a great job, first of all, in discovering the scene. You then carefully chose the lighting, which adds interesting shadows and layers. A peaceful moment nicely captured! My choice for the week winner.

Oliver Oettli: lovely composition. Can only repeat what everyone said. Gangfeng is right, too about the golden cut. But maybe the situation did not allow it? Yes, the winner for this week.

The judge’s opinions on no. 2-9 :
以下是评委们就其他2-9名的观点:

2. Submission Title 标题:The newly weds (iPhone)
Name 姓名:lena du
LIKES 点赞:73
Description 描述:The new couple walked out the church in Copenhagen, Denmark, with people throwing rice at them, as the blessing towards a new life.

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 只差两点,这就是一副经典的婚礼照了:一,观众人数还不够多,不够热闹;二,新娘的脸——趣味中心被挡住了,遗憾!

Eleanor Moseman: Mediocre wedding photo…not travel. Shouldn’t be in this set.

Guyu Syhr 谷雨: Yes, it is a wedding but that’s it. The shot is too casual and not very special.

Oliver Oettli: nice moment! Badly shot! Should not be in the selection.

3. Submission Title 标题:Happy high jump (Huawei 华为EVA-L19)
Name 姓名:AungYa
LIKES 点赞:70
Description 描述:Young novice is playing high jump on the white wall of Pagoda. This Pagoda is known as Myatheindan Pagoda which is located in northwest of Mandalay, Myanmar.

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 只差一口气:如果把小和尚往右上或者右下再来一点就好了,那就只黄金分割点,视觉会舒服一点!

Eleanor Moseman: Surely my second choice for the week. Probably the most natural shot, and evokes a great emotion among travel images. The sky is too artificial blue, and it seems strange to me. If this had been shot with a non-mobile phone with some minor post-processing, this would be an exceptional and playful image.

Guyu Syhr 谷雨: An unexpected cheerful monk in a serious temple surrounding… a happy image! Well done!

Oliver Oettli: nice moment again, caught better. The photo itself is not extremely good but the moment and place makes it still special.

4. Submission Title 标题:父女之间 (iPhone 7 Plus)
Name 姓名:陈爱平
LIKES 点赞:35

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 这张图片瞬间掌握得不够准确,看不出是父女情,相反,看上去好像女孩子看到一个陌生男人要跟他搭讪,准备逃回去叫妈妈的样子!

Eleanor Moseman: Shouldn’t be in this collection.

Guyu Syhr 谷雨: Cute! The photographer captured the eye contacting moment but I feel the intimacy between father and daughter is still missing in this image.

Oliver Oettli: talking about moments. This is a nice moment but a very boring picture. Its not always a good photo just because a baby is on it.

5. Submission Title 标题:City in Rain (iPhone 5s)
Name 姓名:Jakub Wojtas
LIKES 点赞:20
Description 描述:Rainy street overpass in Hong Kong, 2015

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 主题不错——“雨”,气氛眼睛照得不错,但缺乏趣味中心,画面显得杂乱,后期色调也调得过于夸张,使人看了感到不真实、不舒服。

Eleanor Moseman: The lines of the building and among the roads makes this a nice street photo shot. The rain drops work, with the umbrellas below and the mood of light. Nice image overall.

Guyu Syhr 谷雨: Creative angle to shot HK street. I like the oil painting feel but the image is a bit too crowded.

Oliver Oettli: hongkong is always worth a photo! You captured this with a lovely lighting. I am not sure whether i like the raindrops. Makes it artistic and cool and also interferes a bit with the scenery.

6. Submission Title 标题:Room with a view (iPhone 6 Plus)
Name 姓名:Phillip
LIKES 点赞:19
Description 描述:Looking out the window of an old Russian fort on the California coast.

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 题目叫有风景的房间,但是,窗外的风景比较枯燥乏味,倒是窗口的姑娘轮廓清晰,远胜过窗外的风景,难道作者所说的风景是她吗?

Eleanor Moseman: Too much negative space around the frame and the landscape is not exposed well. Needs to work on the angle of shot, more front on to the woman and closer. The landscape is uninteresting and the viewers eyes are led through the window to nothing.

Guyu Syhr 谷雨: Not sure if black and white is better than original. The outside view is a bit weak.

Oliver Oettli: classic! Always good! One of the best pictures this week. But since its like one of the oldest compositions in photographic history i don’t consider it too high today.

7. Submission Title 标题:Sunday afternoon (iPhone SE)
Name 姓名:Yifan
LIKES 点赞:17

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 作者给的题目叫“星期天的下午”,其实这张照片跟时间没有多大关系,他要表现得是两位女孩子的灿烂表情,这点他做到了!不过构图有点松散,我裁减了一下,看看是不是主题更突出了?

Eleanor Moseman: Nice truck and very Americana. Try changing the crop and a different angle. Could be a pretty good image but needs some experimentation with framing.

Oliver Oettli: again, did you see what i said about the babies in pictures? Its a nice memory though. It‘d frame it if it were my kids. Like this, its not interesting to me.

8. Submission Title 标题:Ths Night Cafe (iPad Air 2)
Name 姓名:Boward Vidal
LIKES 点赞:16
Description 描述:Photographed from a bridge, late at night. The picture shows a busy, all-night cafe on a street corner in Hong Kong. I DID NOT EDIT WITH Photoshop. I took 200 photographs of the cafe with my iPad, and stacked all the pictures together to create this one picture. I wanted to capture the light, the life, and the dynamic ambience of the street.

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 作者给的题目是“晚上的咖啡馆”,其实这种抽象画面已经跟内容没有什么大的关系了。应该主要表现的是宜人的构图、节奏、色彩,要有装饰作用,还要给到观众想象的空间,但这幅作品给人的是凌乱和不安稳的感觉。

Eleanor Moseman: At first, wasn’t sure about this but I like the attempt at something different. It adds to the chaotic feel that is often found in urban city streets, and the way a traveler may feel.

Guyu Syhr 谷雨: Unusual street shot and feel like watching a painting. Very creative and keep experimenting!

Oliver Oettli:  i like the creativity! But then.. its just confusing and i dont understand what you want to tell me and why you did it. And this usually means the picture doesnt work. And its supposed to be a mobile shot – this here is stretching it for me a lot.

9. Submission Title 标题:To see deer (iPhone)
Name 姓名:juanita
LIKES 点赞:12
Description 描述:海蓝时见鲸,梦醒时见你,林深始见鹿 Observe deer in the depth of the forest, See whale in the blue of the sea, Meet you when I wakening from a dream.

Judge’s opinions 评委观点
Wang Gangfeng 王刚锋: 曲径通幽!可惜颜色调得有点夸张,最主要的缺点是不见“趣味中心”!比如说:石径上走路的人或动物。

Eleanor Moseman: Colors are too saturated and the viewer’s eyes are led into a black negative space and lost.

Oliver Oettli: you captured a nice place in a completely wrong light. When I see this I think „oh its a great spot for a photo… once light fits“. Like this it means nothing to me. On the other hand you‘ve  proven that you can locate good spots. Now you only need to learn how to take a good photo of it.
