Last month we had a contest and asked the Fstoppers Community to submit their best photos in five different categories. The winners of each category would win their choice of three Fstoppers Flash Discs or one free tutorial from the Fstoppers Store. We were very impressed with all of the talent from the community and were delighted to see such a wide spectrum of images in each category. We spent a great deal of time looking over each category, and after much deliberation, we have chosen one lucky winner from the five categories of Fashion, Landscape, Wedding, Glamour, and Portrait.

The fashion category was filled with great images, from studio to editorial-style shots. We loved this image because not only does it sell the dress, it tells a story. We could easily see this in a magazine.

The landscape category really made us want to travel. All the beautiful scenery and colors were really amazing, but this shot in particular stood out. The softness against the harshness of the boat made this a really eye-catching piece.

The wedding category made us feel the love for sure, and we loved all the unique shots we saw. We love this awesome groom shot! From the fun movement and creative framing, you can tell this photographer knows how to capture the spirit of a wedding day.

The glamour category was one of the more competitive groups, but when we saw this black and white, we really admired the simplicity and light.

From the portrait category, we were expecting a lot of submissions, but not the great amount we received. This was by far the most difficult to judge, and we all deliberated to select our favorite. In the end, we believe this photo captures more than just a portrait, but a beautiful emotion.
