Lisa Jones (Dallas, Texas USA Photo Walk)
There’s just so many wonderful things going on in what appears to be such a simple photo. From the light, the texture, the contrast in colors — everything just works together, but what I think makes this image so great is the oval shape of the flying dough against this backdrop. Everything in this image is a rectangle — even our subject here in black — it’s all rectangles, from the bricks to the light switches, to the table, to the straight lines of the electrical conduit — then you have this flying oval and that makes this such a captivating moment. It’s just too perfect. Look at the light falling on the flying dough itself. Then, the way the photographer gave room for the dough to move above the dough itself (instead of cropping it too closely) — just very well composed and wonderful timing on the photographer’s part. Add in the “Dallas” tattoo on his arm, and the dough on his apron, and the way the brick wall just happened to turn dark near the top making the dough stand out against it — it’s a very strong image — one I kept coming back to again and again, and if something keeps drawing you in, there must be a reason.
Congratulations, Lisa — You are our 2016 Worldwide Photo Walk Grand Prize Winner!
