Photography Challenge 100: Abstract Photography Montage

Our 100th competition was all about Abstract Photography!

Abstract is all about taking a recognisable object or scene, and capturing it in a way so that it seems to lose all form or familiarity.

All of this theme's entries can be seen in our Facebook page album Photoh Facebook page in the album here.

We think it's time to take a look at the finalists for this fortnight!

Deb Signorelli, Adelaide

Lisa Lawrie, Brisbane

Michael Reid, Canberra

Jason Plevras, Melbourne

Amy Meagher, Perth

Alan Coligado, Sydney

The winner this fortnight is...Alan Coligado from Sydney!
Congratulations Alan! You have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
Alan's use of texture, light and bold colour was immediately striking, and a great example of photographing in an abstract style. We love the mysteriousness of this shot, and how most of the context of the scene has been removed.

And in second place we have...Jason Plevras from Melbourne, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher!
Using the water to distort the seaweed that lies beneath is a clever way of effectively capturing in an abstract style, and so simple! Great celebration of colour and texture, whilst leaving enough information so that you can work out what the photo is of.

The theme for next fortnight is Storytelling Photography

What is Storytelling Photography?
Storytelling photography is the art of capturing a scene or a passage of time in a series of frames. When these frames are presented together as a photo essay, one after the other, sometimes as a collage or an album, they can tell a story in a much more emotive way than a single shot can.
