As expected, this was an awesome contest. As we have tried to prove time and again (starting with the original iPhone Fashion Shoot), it's not about the camera. With our Black Rapid contest, we wanted you to help us prove that point, and prove it you did.
Of all the stunning entries, I had to narrow it down to my top six, and finally my overall favorite. To be honest, there has been one entry that struck me from the moment I saw it. And that was a photo by Chris Borchert.
Chris wrote this short description of the photo: "BLUC Unit Crew heading out in a Bell 212 over devastation at the 2011 Musselwhite Mine Wildfire. Photographed with a Canon PowerShot S95."
Chris also mentions that this is a composite stitch, which makes it more impressive to me. I love it. Emotion, composition, and lighting is all perfect for this journalism-style shot. Chris, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.
Congrats to all of you, and thanks to everyone for entering. Check back soon for more contests and more chances to win right here at Fstoppers.com.
