This was a very difficult month to pick our favorites you guys. It is honestly one of my favorite themes in that it is one of my favorite types of subject to shoot. I like a good portrait, and this month provided us with many to choose from. Thanks again to Giorgio Lumaconi (visit Giorgio HERE), our winner from December, for choosing this theme. Below are Heather, Mat and my choices for this month’s vote. The poll will run for the next 5 days, so make sure to vote, tell friends and visit Mirrorlessons HERE to vote there as well! We present our favorite three images from January’s theme, Portraits:
“Matt Seattle” by mullygun (see more HERE)
“Festive Spirit” by Manizkrishnan (see more HERE)
“New Goggles” by Brian Frank (see more HERE)
For those new to our monthly theme challenges, we have open threads in our respective Flickr groups where anyone can submit an image based on their interpretation of the monthly theme. Find our Flickr groups HERE-TRP and HERE-Mirrorlessons. At the end of any given month, Heather, Mat and I choose our three favorites which we then showcase on both our sites with an open vote, like this one. The vote runs for 5 days at which time we tally the totals and the winner gets to choose our theme for the current month as well as gets entered into our semi-annual vote. Our second semi-annual vote will happen after this next theme wherein we have our 6 monthly winners in a new vote with the winner taking home various prizes, goods and adoration. It is free, and a way for all of us to get exposed to wonderful photography from all over the world. Our growing community is awesome, and I, along with Heather and Mat I’m sure, have thoroughly enjoyed doing these monthly challenges, so keep on keeping on!
Don’t forget to vote over at Mirrorlessons HERE as well.
Thanks to everyone who submitted images this month. It was certainly one of our best theme challenges ever and stay tuned for this month (and future months) theme!
