On occasion we feature a Top Five selection from one of our photographers, chosen from the work of their peers also represented by the Printed Art Collection. The following grouping were all chosen as the top of several lists over the years on this site! They still stand out brilliantly, and would look wonderful on YOUR walls! Which one is your favorite?
Anna McAlister says: I have long admired Kim Wilson's work. Her use of vibrant color and composition always draws me inside her images. This particular image is extraordinary. It is so rare to catch a rainbow in all its vivid hues. I really like how the rainbow divides the image as if it is almost two separate images stitched together by the rainbow's arc.
Theresa Daly says: Love the blur of vibrant colours here. Impressionistic.
A.D. says: Round N Round by Diane Modaferri is compelling via the energy that it invokes by virtue of both the spinning motion, as well as the lighting, both that which is static (against the wall) and in motion (at the carousel). The composition is a perfect harmony of stillness and motion.
Larry Donnelly says: Loved the subject and composition. The splash of color in the middle with your eye drawn to it from the elements of the door.
Carly Erin O'Neill says: These grapes appear to sneak into the sun, cautious and elegant. I like the choice to do a very low-key exposure here, which transforms the grapes from what could have been a stock-type photo into a sophisticated piece of art with a wonderful sense of depth. Where I'd Hang It: In the formal dining room. With the bold Black and White, these grapes are dressed up and ready to entertain!
Kim Wilson says: This landscape from Juergen Berkessel has several layers to it, yet is so simple in texture and form. Despite the lack of detail, you see all the relevant features such as the water, strip of land, the lone tree, the towering mountain and the cloud cover that obscures the tip of it. Continue to look deeper and you see two shades and textures of sand and the reflection of the tree is in both the main body of water and a small sliver of water just under the tree itself. This photographer has thoughtfully chosen exactly just how much and how little they want you to see in this image. And what you don't see is left to imagination.
Ken Beerger says: Sweeping and spatial. How does one capture a ferris wheel in a new way? Jack did it here. I can feel the dimensions.
