Thank you so much for those who joined the challenge and for the NEs. I really like many of them!
I love what Timothy Archibald said about a good portrait ‘Trying to really pinpoint what makes a great portrait is almost like trying to figure out why it feels good when someone smiles at you or why it is disturbing when someone yells at you. There are these rules, this structure, and then there is this human intangible element that is the wild card.'
So I chose these pictures not only because of the beautiful composition and lighting but most of all is the sense of vulnerability they bring.
So here are the winners..Congratulations!!!
