“Dare to be Different“ is awarded to - Stephanie K.
After closing my showing at Barefoot Coffee in Campbell – I had the honor of choosing the winner of this contest. I had so much fun reading through all of the entries. It was very hard to choose a winner, as I had so many very touching and insightful comments from so many people. I want to thank everyone who entered.
Again, the objective of this contest was to get people that visited the coffee shop to spend some time to study or interpret my work and provide feedback.
As you might remember – I asked the contestants to answer three questions.
Here are Stephanie's answers below:
Favorite Image: "Dare to be Different"
What would this image mean to you if you were to own it?
It would be a reminder of two things I should hold more dearly: my desire to make changes in my life that are more in line with what makes me happy and a wish to learn to sail before I am too old to have the time to enjoy it.
Briefly describe what you feel the photographer has captured in the image.
From a composition perspective, she's captured a perfect balance between the sky and its reflection on the water and the orange in the sail brings the boat into harmony with nature. I feel the photographer captured the idea that being brave and taking risks can lead one to such harmony within themselves. Thank you for making me think.
I mean seriously? - How could I NOT pick her as the winner !
