Top 10 WeeklyFstop Photos: Favorite

Top 10 WeeklyFstop Photos: Favorite

First off let me just say thank you to all the new people who joined in this week. Having the unique hashtags every week has made it clear how many people are playing and we broke 100 photos submitted in a week for the first time ever. While quantity doesn't always equal quality, I think you'll agree that the level of these shots is up there with our best weeks. I guess that shouldn't be surprising seeing the theme was "favorite" and not "worst ever."

My list of honorable mentions is out of control. There was just way too many to narrow down so I kept way more than usual. I'm going to go ahead and shift the location of the extras to the bottom below our top 10 list. I think this will ensure the winners included in the list are given the full visibility they deserve.

This Week's Top 10:


Steven Madow


Whimsy and Wonder Photography


Win Magsino


Kaden Classen


Sergi (Spechtgold)


Ars Industria


Aaron and Cynthia Amano


Zach Reed


Fuji Traveller


Crystal Provencher

This photo has a great magical feel to it as many waterfall scenes can when done right. There is more to this shot though. The person in the shot seems peaceful and lost in thought with their back to the camera so you are enjoying the same view they are. Great work Provencher and thanks so much for joining in. Sending good health to your father from all of us.

So This Wasn't Planned?

These last two honorable mention selections look amazingly similar in composition, while also being completely different by two separate photographers. When I originally saw them next to each other I assumed it was done on purpose by the same artist.

Funny how the world works sometimes, isn't it?

What Is This Week's Theme and How Do I Enter?

Doing the theme "favorite" was a blast! It will be hard to top the great list we had here, but I have another idea that I hope will also prompt some interesting entries. This weekend is the Super Bowl in the United States. People in our country gather together to watch it more than any other single sporting event I know of. I will be going to a gathering, and also plan on gathering some craft beer for the occasion. OK, I'll stop now. But you should start gathering your ideas!


To enter simply use the hashtag #weeklyFstopGathering on any public Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr post between now and our next weeklyFstop article.

Here are the previous week's results for anyone who may have missed them:

  1. Leading Lines
  2. Bold
  3. Color
  4. Yours
  5. Simplicity
  6. Monochrome
  7. Music
  8. Light
  9. Action
  10. Thankful
  11. Bokeh
  12. Toys
  13. Snow
  14. Frozen
  15. Warmth
  16. Sunrise
  17. Landscape

Remember, there is no guarantee posting a photo will result in it being featured. If we get going and you fall short, keep shooting and try and learn from the photos that are selected. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas feel free to contribute in the comments.

"Congratulations! you're the first.... of the losers! you... almost won! if this was a race and you had a pimple, you would've won!" ;)

I was worried your trophy shelf wasn't anchored well enough to withstand another win! It's one of my "favorite" shots I've seen of yours. Timeless portrait.
