The theme for round ten was ” Urban” and we had a great turn out, with so many people submitting fantastic photographs.
To see all the awesome photos that were submitted check out these links:
It wasn’t an easy task selecting the “best” or my “favourite” photo from this round’s Travel Photo Roulette. We had a lot of different interpretations on the rather abstract theme I chose, that was cool to see. We had the pretty and ugly aspects of cities well represented in the submissions. Colour and black & white, photoshoped and non photoshoped, as well as a few HDR images are in the mix. Great work everyone!
First place goes to:
Adam from Travels of Adam
I loved Adam’s interpretation of “Urban”.
It was a unique way of looking at city life and I felt that it best represented the Urban theme. All the people in the photo are incognito, and it’s easy to interpret this photo in many ways. I like the way that the faceless giant appears to be standing on the street amongst the little people. Yet at the same time he is a ghost image. I get this feeling in big cities, that no matter who you are, you can be as big, as small, or as invisible as you want.
Congrats to Adam! Make sure to check out his blog, as he will be selecting the theme and hosting Round 11.
As a consolation prize I have selected 3 Honourable Mentions.
These lucky bloggers will be the recipient of imaginary Ferraris! Yes folks, my generosity knows no bounds. I’m just awesome like that. I’m also INCREDIBLY humble ;^)
In no particular order, here are the other three finalists:
Well Dave, you don’t get many better photos of skyscrapers either! Love this shot and the perfect composition. You made it difficult not to choose it as the overall winner. While Dave is not a “pro” photographer, he puts a lot of pros to shame with his skill, talent, and dedication to the craft. He also has a sweet photoblog that you should seriously check out. Bravo Dave!
While Kim’s site is called To Uncertainty and Beyond, there is one thing that she can be certain of… This photo rocks! Perfect timing, I love those magical light trails.
There are so many different elements in this image that truly represent what Urban means to me. From the fun of the Ferris Wheel, the green space in the middle of urban chaos, the freeways, commercial, industrial and residential buildings, this shot has it all. Plus I love lightning storms, and Sydney is an incredibly special city. Be sure to follow Dina and Ryan as they travel the world.
Thanks to all who participated in this fun and lighthearted contest. Look for round 11 to begin soon!
