Photography Competition: Amateur – Lifestyle Class

Lifestyle. It’s not action, it’s not static, it’s the moments when the action has or is about to happen. It’s the moments when there is nothing to see. It’s the moments where you have the laughs, the tears and the memories. Lifestyle shots are about being in the right place at the right time and knowing when to capture the right shot. To work out what makes a great lifestyle photo, put yourself in the photographers shoes – is the moment captured? Is it in the spirit of Drifting? Is there a panic to get a car working? Can you feel the emotion in the photo? Is the light amazing? Is the photo composed well? Is there a random hypnotic horse in the photo eating a car? You decide by voting HERE! Some amazing entries in this round, I can’t actually choose yet.

  1. people from iceland should be banned from anything and everywhere untill they pay us dutchies the 1.3 BILLION euro’s back!!

  2. Sorrý Arnold, there’s nothing I can do about that Icesave thing. Not even like I came close to that deal neither. But I’ll be happy to give 5% away if I win anything in cause to pay that up (which legally we don’t have to I’ve heard). 😉

    Besides that, many cool photos in this category!
