About the Photographer and Photograph:

A mate and his wife dropped in and said they were going to go see the houses around Canberra lit up for Xmas and wanted to know if i wanted to grab my camera and join them,10 seconds later we were on our way.There were some great displays but when we got to Kambah it was the stand out,so i started snapping staight away.As we were leaving the owner of the house started to chat to me about my camera and explained that the local paper was there the previous day taking photos and he had asked if he could have some copies for his website but they said no.So he asked if i could give him some of mine (he raises money for a childrens charity with his display so i had to say yes),after getting home and looking at my photos i thought i could do better so i went out the next night and took quite a lot of photos including some shots to merge to panos and gave them to him the next day.Looks like kahma works as now i have won this comp:)

What a wonderful photo, Shorty. We love the contrast and the story behind it. The panorama makes it absolutely perfect. We love how your eye wanders to every pixel in the photo. Congrats, and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!

Wide Open Tees Photography Shirts Photo Contest #7: ABSTRACT

Our 7th contest has crowned a winner! Congratulations to Chris for this beautiful photo!

About the Photographer and Photograph:

Photographer: Chris Arnet
Gear: Canon 60D, Rokinon 8mm. Handheld @ 1/400th, f/9, ISO 100

I took this image November 24th during an outing to the aquarium. This is the new (almost complete) landmark Trinity bridge in Dallas, Tx. I wasn’t happy with the images I got from the ground, so I climbed up the construction work to get on top. This set of images is priceless to me, because I was able to photograph the beautiful architecture of this bridge at it’s completion before it was open to the public, so I was able to shoot with no restrictions, and no vehicles in the images. I came away with photographs of a landmark nobody again will be able to capture now that the bridge is opened, and it was a great self reminder to think outside of the box. Sometimes a little risk can lead to a lot of reward.

Wow, Chris! Photographers don’t get enough credit sometimes when it comes to great photographs. Lots of people see a picture and assume “good camera.” Your scenario helps others see how much work photographers go though to get that perfect photograph…and what a perfect photograph this is! Congrats Chris, and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!


Wide Open Tees Facebook Photo Contest #5 Winner: LUSCIOUS LIGHTING

Brian Davidson takes home the prize for our most recent photo contest: LUSCIOUS LIGHT! Congratulations and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!

About the Photography and Photographer:

The photo was taken with the Canon 1d mkIV and the Canon 15mm f/2.8 Lens. The settings were at F/22, a 25second exposure and ISO 200.

The photo was taken during the Independence, Mo Santa-Cali-Gon days. The festival is held each year on the Independence square to celebrate the Santa Fe, The California, and the Oregon Trails. All three of the trails started on the Independence square and If you have ever played the Oregon Trail video game, you would have started the in Independence. This was my first try at doing a time lapse and after a few test shots, I nailed this one.

You can visit Brian’s portfolios here for more great photos: http://photographybydavidson.com/

If this photograph doesn’t reflect luscious light, we don’t know what does! Beautiful, free-flowing, and absolutely well composed. What a great shot, Brian! Congrats!

Wide Open Tees Photography Shirts Photo Contest #6: THINGS WITH ENGINES

Our 6th photo contest on POTN forums has ended! Congratulations to Jason for this great photo!

About the Photographer and Photograph:

(exif: Olympus E-P1 w/ Panasonic 20mm f/1.7, 1/60th sec, f/2, iso 100).
Upon arriving at work, an interesting piece of equipment with tracks was parked in the employee parking lot. It’s purpose and function, I had no clue. However, this machine was well-worn and looked fantastic, and I am one who will not let a photographic opportunity pass. Early morning overcast made for perfect light, and I got several really good shots–this one included. This is why I always carry a camera with me; because you never know what “pictures” life will present to you…

Such great texture and we love the detail. Usually, photographs can cover so much on the wide-side, that it builds a story. This is the exact same but in reverse. The composition is great and still provides that same sense of wonder and story. Congrats Jason, and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!
