First curator's choice
Congratulations !

Setsiri Silapasuwanchai:First of all, this picture has full of senses which are so extraordinary. Sometimes in the photographer life, it's not simple just to find this view angle. The picture contains positive and negative spaces and looks like they are playing each other.
The light and shade will absolutely be main theme. Out of this, the intelligent thing I can see is the connection of the distance. Many circles are going like the loops where it starts by the first small one and is going to the racket direction. Finally the circle returns to the white line at the net and meet other player exactly at the origin. The white line is the bonus that creates another perspective line and hold your eyes back there. This picture has been fulfilled its completeness by every things: decisive, perfect timing, nice elements and nice composition in one frame, I would say I love it.



Second curator's choice
Congratulations Suresh Naganathan!

Setsiri Silapasuwanchai:woman with her umbrella under the rain – At first sight for me this picture has something special that you cannot compare with other raining shots. To make the difference you need to add some mixture of mood. The idea’s initiation and imagination are definitely the best ingredient that can make an outstanding of raining shot you will never seen before and this one is very good example. I like the light from the car lamp that looks very cinematic. I like the idea to include that yellow umbrella and the flowers paints. Those created the warm tone against the cool tone of the sky. The head’s shade seems not connecting to the neck and the unique pigtails. The little big gimmicks like the wall’s perspective and also the fence will take your eyes to the main subject as well. This picture will provide you the great remembrance and you will hardly forget this picture for long-long time.




Special Mentions

Setsiri Silapasuwanchai
Setsiri Silapasuwanchai: A beautiful silhouette picture! The moment of the yellow cloth waving in the air looks so nice in term of dynamic issue. By the way, I think two bodies and shadows are competitive each other too much. The couple posed too common for this photograph.



Congratulations JSD JADSADA!

Setsiri Silapasuwanchai
Setsiri Silapasuwanchai: I like the photographer’s creativity to capture this moment as a storyteller. I can see that nice shadow which looks like a hunter is pointing to somewhere.
The flying bird can make a connection between them. However the objectives are quite far at the same focal plane made the picture too flat and less impact.


Setsiri Silapasuwanchai
Setsiri Silapasuwanchai: This picture is quite mystery. The red umbrella with beautiful texture and the shoes show very good intention and idea of the photographer. What I do not like is too much empty dead space and too tiny story.



Congratulations Rudy BOYER!

Setsiri Silapasuwanchai
Setsiri Silapasuwanchai: This is a nice silhouette picture. I like the good composition of the three bodies and transparent fabric overlapping with people shadows. It’s ordinary beautiful. My thought is it will be more attractive if we can find some WOW things on this picture that we can smell the street more.
