Capture the Colour 2013—Results!

By Vladimir Brezina

A month ago I submitted, at the last minute, my entry for Travel Supermarket’s 2013 Capture the Colour competition—five photos that best captured the colors red, blue, green, yellow and white.

The results are out, and my Yellow photo, although it did not win, did, quite unexpectedly, make it into the top three!

That’s an improvement over the year before, when my Green photo only made it into the top eleven. So things are moving in the right direction. ;-)

Do take a look at the winners of this year’s competition—some of them are quite lovely!

  25. Good job. Your photo is lovely. Photography is hard because so many people are pretty good at it, Digital photos are everywhere, and art is so subjective. It’s hard to develop a thick skin as far as contests go, but what you do realize is how talented people are.

    • Yes, photography (especially digital photography) is superficially easy—many people who actually wanted to paint took up photography when they discovered they couldn’t draw—but the more you look at photographs the more you realize that some photographers are much better than others (and not just technically), and have their individual, distinct styles…

      As far as contests go, you’ve got nothing to lose… although you do have to check the fine print to see what exactly you are allowing them to do with your photo ;-)

      • Yes, that is true, and it is true in art as well. I saw a huge canvas in a Paris art museum that was painted entirely with royal blue paint – not nuances or anything. Now why that was there baffled me, and still does. To me anyone could do that, but most people wouldn’t because who would take it. Obviously this artist had a name. He must have had an off day or something. It did make you talk and laugh, but artistic???? I don’t think so! But you never know why people choose the things they do. I’m glad yours got chosen. I do think it’s wonderful, and I’m glad you had the courage to enter! :)
