#CROWN contest Winners!

#CROWN contest Winners!

Friends, I’m happy to announce the #CROWN contest winners!
Judging was not easy. 47 works submitted, and most of them were So Good!
We had several judging criteria:

  • Concept & Idea: Idea, Emotion, Feeling, Mood, Impact, Creativity, Originality, Style
  • Technical Value: Exposure, Focal distance, Focus, Sharpness, Depth of field, Lighting, Noise, etc
  • Aesthetics & Processing: Composition, Framing, Background, Design elements, Colors, Retouching
  • Modeling: Model choice, Posing, Commitment, Expression
  • Makeup, Design, Effort: Make up, Hair, Dress, Design elements, General Effort level, etc

This way, with this categories, a newbie photographer with a cheap camera, but who would go an extra mile, put a lot of effort into the shoot, etc — can win over a professional photographer with a $5,000 worth equipment. After all, this was a contest of TFP projects, not a contest of who has the most expensive camera, right?
