GUEST JUDGE WINNER
Our guest judge this month is Eyeist reviewer, Cindy Hicks. Ms. Hicks is a Creative Director/Art Producer, the last 15 years spent with one of the top Advertising agencies; The Martin Agency as a senior art producer. She's worked with many prestigious clients including: Walmart, Timberland, Expedia, John F. Kennedy Library Museum, BF Goodrich, Hanes, Barely There and many more.
Cindy chose Andrey Vahrushew's "Bзгляд." Here is what she had to say:
This image evokes (for me) a point in a child's & parent's life where a child is growing up, maybe going to camp for the first time & the parent, letting go a little. The B&W adds to the timelessness of the image. The lighting & tones in the image are lovely.
Andrey will receive a Live Review with a reviewer of his choice at Eyeist.com.
A few additional comments from Cindy:
On Seth Rubin's beautiful moment between father and newborn:
This image i kept coming back to, though it is a photo that is shot often, this has details which make it stand out: the lighting, the background allows you to focus on the moment between the father & son, and a their profiles are so perfect.
On Sumit Kohli's "Ahuja Race!":
This one I chose because of the like in it, a great alternative to a standard group shot, the look on the father's face, the middle son trying have to beat his older brother & the little one's open arms. A wonderful moment in time.
Saad Salem's "And they say fathers do nothing" had the most Facebook likes and will receive a copy of Sandy Puc's Bellies & Babies.
