70.5: Perspective Framing – Winners Announced
1st Place: Purple Ixora
Purple Ixora takes 1st place recreating the iconic 007 opener. I’d wager most of our judges cut their teeth playing countless hours of Goldeneye, so this was a no-brainer. Purple Ixora said James Bond was not part of the original plan, but the tube was so reminiscent of 007 they had to throw a lil Zen man in there. Purple Ixora is awarded $100 for first place.
2nd Place: Scruffy Hawk
A lot of people had the same idea of using a little Zen man in their photos for this contest, and the judges liked it. Scruffy Hawk started with a ring similar to a planetary rotation machine, and extended it into this tunnel. Slap a lil Zen explorer in there and Scruffy Hawk gets $65 for 2nd place, but wait…
2nd Place: DBOI
A rare Zen Magnets Contest occurrence, a tie for 2nd place! DBOI utilized some white and rose gold Neoballs for teeth and gums on this mouth, ready to chomp that lil Zen man. Check out this behind the scenes photo for how he got the shot. DBOI is awarded $65 for 2nd place.
4th Place: Acanthaster
Acanthaster calls this, “A Trip to Plaid Canyon.” We’ve got another lil Zen man, this time on vacation. Acanthaster said this about the subject matter, ” I like the idea of a camera shooting a camera shooting a subject.” Acanthaster is awarded $45 for 4th place.
5th Place: y0chi
Finally, y0chi presents us with 3 hexagons, each shrinking in diameter. Nice composition with the center hexagon in sharp focus. The reflection also came out great. y0chi gets $30 for 5th place.
