Congratulations to photographers: Tatiana Shumbasova, Julie Gebhardt, and Michał Zwara for their recently purchased photos. Here are their captivating shots:
Tatiana's photo won the "Morning Routine" challenge because of its simplicity and calmness. The white sheet and her pajamas bring out the focus of her plate which has organized food and a potted of flower. Because a lot of us rely heavily on technology now days, this picture captures the morning routine that we should actually do to have a good morning and a great start to the day.
The "Happy Hoildays 2016" challenge garnered a variety of pictures such as holiday activities, family gatherings, Christmas trees, decorations... etc. Out of all the submissions, this clean symmetrical picture won the challenge due to its color contrast, which highlights the bright red holiday candles.
The "Angles" challenge sought out photographer creativity, garnering submissions on a wide array of different subjects and scenes. Michał's photo won this challenge because of its lucidity and its composition. The upward shot makes the geometric shape of the building more clear, as well as appear to be more spectacular. Additionally, the simple color combination makes the picture simple and visually pleasing.
A giant takeaway from this post, is that photo buyers are looking for visuals with aesthetic pleasing composition and clean color combinations. Buyers seek out photos like these because they highlights the main focus of the subject matter. For example, the clear white sheet of "morning routine" picture brings out the breakfast tray and the color choice of the "Holiday 2016" image highlights the holiday candle to emphasize the holiday spirit.
