Fstoppers wants to thank all the participants of the latest Critique the Community. Everyone's participation with the new contest system was a huge success with 1,152 submissions and over 38,000 votes. Here are the results.
First, congratulations to our two winners of the Fstoppers tutorial prize. The first winner, with the highest rated portrait voted by the community, is John Platanou. Congratulations on your beautiful portrait. The second winner was a randomly chosen participant from our 20 selected images. This prize goes to jonas y. We will be in touch with both of you via your Fstoppers account to claim your prize.
The overwhelming number of submissions not only brought out some incredible images to the forefront of the website, it also brought out some great interaction between community members. Most images ended up with between 30-40 ratings from fellow photographers. If you participated and didn't get selected for the video, you should still have a good idea of where your work stands. It also gave Lee and Patrick a great discussion point on where the community agreed or disagreed with their own ratings on each image.
If you missed your chance to participate in this episode, our next Critique the Community will feature iPhoneography. In other words, the image image must be taken with a smart phone. Submissions are now open HERE.
Our next Critique the Community launches our brand new platform for the series. Submit your best portrait for a chance to have it reviewed by the Lee Morris and Patrick Hall in addition to winning one of two free Fstoppers original tutorials. Although we realize that asking for portraits is an incredibly broad topic, we want to invite submissions of all kinds that fit that description. Take this opportunity to explore the new platform by submitting your best images below and rate your fellow community members' pictures. It's easier than ever to give each picture a rating by using the number pad to assign a rating and clicking right or left to proceed to the next image. We promise to rate all of the entries ourselves and encourage you to do the same.
In addition to giving away a free Fstoppers original tutorial to one randomly chosen entrant, we will also be giving a tutorial to the highest rated image that's been submitted. Take a minute to scroll through the submissions, assign your own ratings, and leave helpful comments for your fellow community members.
