THE BEST OF THE AN­I­MAL WORLD

The win­ners of our lat­est con­test with Pho­tocrowd have been re­vealed

Digital Photograper - - Photocrowd Competition -

In our most re­cent com­pe­ti­tion in as­so­ci­a­tion with Pho­tocrowd we chal­lenged you to sub­mit your best im­ages of the an­i­mal world, and af­ter sift­ing through over 3,100 im­pres­sive pho­tos, the win­ners have been se­lected. Both crowd-voted and ex­pert win­ners will win a li­cence to Affin­ity Photo pro­fes­sional edit­ing soft­ware. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all of the win­ners – as usual the stan­dard of sub­mit­ted im­ages was high and se­lect­ing the stand-out shots was very dif­fi­cult.

1ST PLACE WIN­NER

GREAT GRAY OWL

PHO­TOG­RA­PHER: Harry Collins

OUR COM­MENT: This is a truly su­perb cap­ture, show­ing an in­cred­i­ble bird mi­dac­tion, about to pounce and cap­ture its prey. There’s re­ally noth­ing about this im­age that could pos­si­bly be any bet­ter.

2ND PLACE

THE STRUG­GLE FOR EX­IS­TENCE

PHO­TOG­RA­PHER: Msaaed Al Gharibah

OUR COM­MENT: This im­age demon­strates what’s pos­si­ble when pa­tience is ap­plied. Three months and three dif­fer­ent cam­eras seems ab­so­lutely worth­while in or­der to pro­duce a photo of this qual­ity. The gaze of the an­i­mal and the at­mo­spheric colour pal­ette make for some­thing truly spe­cial.

3RD PLACE

THE LINEUP

PHO­TOG­RA­PHER: Jac­ques-An­dre Dupont

OUR COM­MENT: The an­i­mal world can look truly in­cred­i­ble in black and white, and this wilde­beest cap­ture is a su­perb ex­am­ple both of the magic of mono­chrome and the power of com­pressed per­spec­tive, which is used to ex­cel­lent ef­fect here.
