Evermotion Challenge 2016 Winners Announcement!

~1EN

Robert Filipowicz: It is definetely my favourite work. Big plus for telling a story with this illustration. Great mood and composition. This ant did the job ;). Congratulations! 

Barbara Witkowska: Finally I agreed with other members of jury to give this artwork the first place. Beautifully and carefully executed work, a catched moment in time. Wisely chosen and perfectly fitted quality models, mastered lighting and composition. I'd change nothing here!

Yavor Stoikov: This image is a winner in every aspect: it has a balanced composition; great colours; despite the somewhat botched bokehs, the quality of the work is beyond every other contestant. 

~2EN

Robert Filipowicz: I’m impressed of photorealistic look of this image. Very solid work. Lovely place to "pitch" your own secret garden.

Barbara Witkowska: I love the sense of a peaceful place hidden behind the trees which protect it from wind and outside world. Composition and lighting guide us directly to the couple finding themselves in this hidden paradise. I appreciate the amount of work put in this image, author's personal attitude - as it's based on his own experience and overall outstanding work done here. What needs more author's attention is definitely a fog.

~3EN

Robert Filipowicz: I really like the lightning and level of detail in the final image. Very interesting idea of the secret garden and one of the best in my opinion.

Barbara Witkowska: I like the contrast between old, dusty objects bathed in a warm light and clear blue fluorescent glow of a miniature garden that must have just grown in a jar. Choosing just one brightest point in the picture would make this artwork even more interesting.

Yavor Stoikov: This image is in the selection because of its interesting idea and appeal. The actual rendering work does not correspond in quality to the other top contestants and there's too much post work involved.

~4EN

Robert Filipowicz: You created here a small beautiful world which i really like. Good idea, great materials and detail makes this work one of the best. 

Barbara Witkowska: Perfectly crafted miniature. The boat and the light on the path is so inviting to discover this small garden. The model of garden is clearly brought out of the background. Great attention to details and well-balanced colour composition. What I'd suggest to make this work even better, would be to make light from the little lanterns a bit brighter and warmer.

Yavor Stoikov: Love the model feel and the fact, that the secret garden can be observed only as an artificial representation. The design is great, the whole image has a lot of artistic merit to it. The image contains more modelling and detail then all the other contestants, yet still has a subtle feel to it. The only setback is the insufficient lighting.

~5EN

Robert Filipowicz: Interesting image but I see some lacks in lightning and postproduction. After all it is a good work. 

Barbara Witkowska: A very detailed scene, a lot of attention put into every element including the main character. The first plan is so detailed and so interesting, that it could stand as an individual image. A moment caught in the artwork intrigues, it would be even more eye-catchy with more dynamic pose of the character. A big plus for overall outstanding quality!

Yavor Stoikov: Great incorporation of movement in a still image; great interpretation of the idea; and a very appealing rendition, which accentuates floating a lightness and not speed and blurs. The whole concept of rising up to Heaven/another world/the clouds is conveyed to us through subtlety and emotional triggers, hidden in details.

~6EN

Robert Filipowicz: Only thing which i can tell is that I would like to be there right now! Almost I hear this falling water and smell those flowers. Good job :)

Barbara Witkowska: A really eye pleasant picture with successful backlight approach. One point perspective guiding us towards light always works!

Yavor Stoikov: Regardless of the somewhat standard composition, the image is full of life and colour. The busy vegetation and the hint at hidden/secret bring great appeal and serenity to the image. There is a great combination of natural growth and man-made amendments, and an appealing hint into a bigger story. The only thing that brings this image lower in my top list is the presence of entries witth even bigger appeal.
