04th April 2016, Singapore – PINK Photographers Singapore (PPSG) – We have a rather interesting theme this round for Pink Submissions #14. The Sponsor – Cathay Photo Store had selected a color theme and Blue was the color. Blue being very much part of everyone’s lives also can be used for a variety of expressions, moods and interpretations. Looking at the 300+ entries submitted this round, this further confirms that Blue is very simple yet vast at the same time, innocent and yet diverse. Not exactly an easy theme if you ask me.
Together with the judges (Sponsor), We have selected the below images that best represent this theme and several things were considered before the image made it here. From compositions, exposure, image quality and clarity to final delivery and captions. Before we get to the selected entries, let’s hear what the sponsor Cathay Photo & the Editor AL have to say about the entries.
“When Cathay Photo told me they had selected the theme – BLUE – for this submission, I went blank for a couple of minutes. Seemingly a simple theme, but to submit an image with a Blue theme is not easy. And I wonder what images will the Ladies from Pink submit. Well, after the entries poured in, I am not disappointed, Good Job Ladies!”
– AL, Editor.
“We selected a color theme and thought that this will be good challenge for the Pink Photographers. Blue happened to be our favorite color and we wanted to see how the color Blue gets interpreted by so many individuals. We went through every single entry and finally selected the winning images although we really love almost all the submitted images! Nice work Ladies!”
– Charmaine & Jasmine, Cathay Photo Store.
