As one of the winners of the ‘Movement & Motion’ contest held by The Digital Lightroom, Gracie Binoya won a free copy of Topaz B&W Effects. The image shown below won her the second place title:
From Gracie on the Image:
I had been planning on entering the Digital Lightroom competition and
when I found out that the theme was “Movement and
Motion”, I knew exactly the kind of photo that I wanted to submit.
I’ve always wanted to capture the “flight” of a skateboarder. It took
a little while for it to be realized but I did it and my entry was
submitted just in the nick of time.
When my entry was short listed, I was ecstatic but really not as
hopeful since the other entries were all brilliant interpretations of
the theme and I thought each one of the entries deserved to win. So it
really was a huge surprise and an honor to have my entry win the
second place for Digital Lightroom’s “Movement and Motion” photo
I have since downloaded and used my prize, Topaz Black & White
Effects. It is an amazing piece of software, and has become an
important part of my workflow.
Before Topaz B&W Effects:
I can certainly see myself entering the competition again soon, and I
sure hope you do too
Enjoy and happy shooting!
