“Highway of Lights” by Graham Gibson

Congratulations to Graham in what ended up as our tightest vote yet, edging out tvhow and Samuel Dorado by a combined 4 total votes between the vote here and the vote over on Mirrorlessons (click here to visit Heather and Mat).

All three images chosen this month were beautiful.  Samuel’s had a dark and uncertain serenity speaking to the unknowns associated with isolation in the vast expanses of the open ocean at night making for both a calming and unnerving aesthetic.  tvhow balanced various elements in ambient nighttime landscape, gelled flash and hand spun, flame laden steel wool in a composition all bisected by a mirroring of the composition in reflection.  Graham’s image of the Bay Bridge, with traffic fleeing the perspective of the viewer and traveling to an etherial yet gothic cityscape balanced and contrasted tones and space in the warm glow of traffic leading us to a cool horizon through and over the dark sea below.

Great shots all, and thank you to everyone who submitted their shots as well.  Each month the bar continues to be pushed, and hopefully this helps to motivate us all in upping our game.

While we wait to hear back from Graham on his decision for the theme for this month’s challenge, visit Graham on Flickr HERE.  Graham has been entered into our 6 month giveaway which will take place after this month’s challenge.

To enter into this month’s or any future month’s challenges, all one needs to do is to join the TRP Group HERE and the Mirrorlessons Group HERE, and submit your image to the discussion thread for the corresponding month as they’re posted.

Check back in to see what the future holds, or find me on Facebook and Twitter to get alerts as they are posted.

Thanks again to all and happy shooting,

Tyson
