...and the winners are

We've received tremendous feedback and comments on the first event in the series of Theme Shoots with Jack Hollingsworth. The hundreds of participating Jalbumers also seem to have made an impression on Jack : "I'm blown away by all the talent shown in the Jalbum community. Thank you for all the great submission to the Close-up theme shoot." Jack has now reviewed all the submitted albums and it's time to announce the winners!

Close up   Nature's treasures   Trials on Details and light
Ozinka / Zdenka   Discover / Rosita   Marie Ancolie

Jack's motivation:

For great use of creative compositions with outstanding depth of field and bokeh. The interplay of light, colors, sharp details and softer out of focus areas is true art. quote


Jack's motivation:

For wonderful use of light and colors. The theme is consistently tied together, but also very nicely varied in choice of subject. quote


Jack's motivation:

For showcasing a beautiful lesson in close-up photography. Brilliant technique and use of light, you can tell that Marie is a perfectionist. quote


Congrats to all three of you! We will upgrade/extend your Jalbum premium accounts by one year. Also, enjoy the exposure in this newsletter, this blog post and being featured albums on Jalbum.

For the rest of us, there is a new chance to win in the next Theme Shoot event, which will be "Portrait photography". Stay tuned.
