Wide Open Tees Facebook Photo Contest #7 Winner: Silhouette

Lai Jun Wei is the winner of our most recent photo contest: Silhouette! Congratulations and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!

About the Photography and Photographer:

Canon 1D Mk3, 1/125, f/4, ISO1000

I shot this photo during one of the half-marathons held in Singapore. I had to walk a good distance, which included a steep climb up the Benjamin Sheares Bridge before I came to this sweet spot with the Singapore Flyer in the background. As most of the elite competitors had passed me when the sun came out, I decided to focus on the sunrise and make take a silhouette shot of the stragglers instead. All the effort I put in just to get this one shot… Totally worth it.

I don’t really have a site where I post my photos. But I shoot regularly for a local sports news site and my photos can be found here: http://redsports.sg/author/junwei/

Everything about this photograph is beautiful: the colors, the focus, the composition! Great job, Jun Wei!

Wide Open Tees Photography Shirts Photo Contest #8: WEATHER

Our 8th contest has crowned a winner! Congratulations to Kevan for this wonderfully timed photo! Beautiful work, Kevan!

About the Photographer and Photograph:

This was all about being at a dry place, at a wet time. We all know..too often it’s fool’s luck who plays with the success of our image. This is the Tappan Zee bridge that spans the Hudson river in NY, about 40 miles north of Manhattan. I don’t recall why I was at that particular location, I live no where near it, but I can tell you the river frequently tosses a photographer an excellent photo opportunity bone.

This image was taken using my little Canon G9. Speaking of fool’s luck, thank God small sensors have open DOF, as my camera settings were really off. No, I ain’t tellin’! LOL!

All the best,
Kevan
