Market – Elmo

As I mentioned at the previous photo, I submitted some (two) photos for the Monthly Shooting Assignment (the assignment being “markets”) over on APUG.

This was the second one, and in the eyes of the judge (actually the winner of a previous assignment), it was the winning photo. I feel honoured.

I’ll let the jury do the talking:

“But the other one – Elmo – to me is just perfect. The incredible cacophony of things in the background is sooooo typical of local markets! It is indeed one of the main attractions of these events. And to have the little detail of Elmo popping up almost as a “me too!” is just the icing on the cake. The technical execution is also right up there, with plenty of smooth greys and the odd speck of white and black here and there, just enough to give it a bit of sparkle. Well done!”

So, I hope you enjoy this.

I get to choose the subject for the September-October assignment. I have a few ideas already, and still enough time to think about them. And at the end of October, I’ll be the judge of the submissions. Quite exiting, even though it’s just for fun, with “15 minutes of eternal(!) fame” as the only prize.

Anyway… markets. More on that subject later on!
