Judge’s Feedback:

"That's what a great portrait looks like! Those eyes had my complete attention. The contrast of skin color and the eyes with bright foliage is beautiful! The photographer uses both creative and technical skills to work with light, colour and composition." - Aleksandr

"What a well thought out and creative photo! The composition couldn't have been carried out any better than this. The photographer bases her importance solely on shades of green, playing about with them in an extra ordinary manner." - Rumaisa


Other entries that won us over:

Photo: Happy Green

Photographer: Angel Xavier

postimage-35.jpg "I always like to observe emotional and vivid pictures! Especially when you can see the happiness of people being photographed! Undoubtedly, this work deserves attention! Remembering those green paint with textures on the face, the author reveals the theme of freedom. And that smile is just perfect." - Aleksandr 


Photo: Norway Lights

Photographer: Vlad Ionescu

Location: Norway


"Photography philosophically transports us to places that we may never physically visit! Photographers of Northern Lights go through a lot to capture these amazing shots so nature-lovers like ourselves can appreciate their work! I like this picture because looking at this green beauty makes me want to be there at this moment! " - Aleksandr
