Ksenya's photo won the "Household Chores" challenge because it wonderfully captures the struggles of a young boy in his attempt to help out with chores. The boy's small size is a stark contrast with the drying machine. Additionally, the photo is bright, crisp, and features a visually-pleasing composition of all of the elements.

The "All About Love" Request sought photos of anything related to love, whether it be family members, friends, partners, or even pets. With precious floral dresses and authentic emotion, Randi's photo perfectly fits the theme. The genuine love between the group of girl's, evokes a sense of nostalgia for simpler times and childhood friendships.

Everyone loves lazy days and nights spent lounging in their beds. The "Under the Sheets" challenge garnered a wide variety of photos of babies, adults, and pets doing just that. From the submissions, Eddie's dreamy photo was chosen for its simple composition, perfect lighting, and identifiable content. Many people have memories of staying up past their bedtime to read the last few pages of their favorite book. 

 Romantic Couples

The "Romantic Couples" challenge had so many amazing submissions of couples that it was difficult to choose a winner. However, Rolf's photo stands out from the rest because for the us, the viewer, it seems like we are catching something we aren't supposed to see. With the man facing away from the camera there is a sense that we just happened to walk into their special moment. Furthermore, the natural emotion on the woman's face emphasizes the pure love she feels for him.  


A giant takeaway from this post, is that photo buyers are looking for visuals that tell stories. Each image has its own unique story to tell. Buyers are seeking out photos like these because they evoke certain relatable feelings such as love, companionship, childhood memories, and dreams for the future.
