    Default 24 >> Group 8: The Techniques - Best Use of Composition

    BEST USE OF COMPOSITION

    We're now at number 24, the countdown continues, 6 more to go!!!

    This is our second last technique that we are going to be handing awards out for! We only have Stocks left after this!! The end is nigh everyone!!!!!

    Composition is more than just putting images down on a canvas and hoping for the best - it's the careful planning or sitting and moving the images to get just the right direction in a piece, or flow through a piece to make the whole wallpaper work. It's about bringing together all of the other elements including brushes, textures, images and text and joining them to create one unified piece rather than just a collage (unless of course that was the style you were going for!)

    Together with stocks the best use of composition category had the highest number of nominations at 51 pieces, although 5 were not eligible for awards in the end; but, we still have 22 awards to hand out just now! There are 15 placement awards, 5 runners up and 2 honourable mentions... away we go!

    BIG shout out to Ehlwyen who made THE MOST AWESOME awards for the 11th-15th placements you rawk my socks off!

    Sting was my #1 and it is also one of my fave pieces ever, I love the way you mixed the images of the people in with the building it was heartbreaking! Ehlwyen was my #2 such a unique piece and it should have got waaay more points IMO! Others in my top 5 were Zugma, Smthblue and Firecracker!!!

    All of the awards as usual are to die for. Speaking of composition, Aureola the award you made for 7th is flawless. Love the set up. Yet another hard category to judge. Everyone views composition of a piece differently. Have to say Firecracker's "Empty" piece was amazing and was my number one. Followed by Francy, Erin, Debbie, and Wendy. Congratulations and kudos on a job well done everyone.

    I love Ehlwyen awards so diverse in the way you've managed to make them unique using the same structure, but Clement award for Sayjay is frigging awesome love the way you blended in the stock photo of the blood, and Aureola looks so smooth and seamless it could have been a photograph!

    congrats to everyone who won, some really amazing wallpapers, I think I found this category the most challenging to pick my favs, each good in their own right and the composition really depends on the subject so I don't want to give any shout outs becuase they were all great!

    Ooops another one I missed, back now! Thanks to everyone who voted I'm blown away by how well Razor's Edge did tbh, it was a toss up whether to enter it into Composition or Stocks as I was tempted to enter always end here into composition instead! Muchos love and hugs!!!!!

    My shout outs are earlier in the thread but it shoudl be said again: Lyn your awards freaking rawk!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE ABOUT MY AWARDS!!!

    They are a little out of order and actually go 13, 12, 11, 15. I hope those who watch Supernatural could see it was supposed to be the beginning of 4.01 Lazarus Rising with Cas visiting Dean's grave. My husband was a little confused on it.

    Lydia made the punch!

    I concur. Ehlwyen's awards are some of the best of the night here!

    A high placement in this category feels wonderful to me. I am so conscious of where I am putting images and what I am erasing away or inserting. I constantly change my mind. But that's part of the fun! So I appreciate the recognition for this!

    Francy took my top spot. And then xinyi. SJ, Debbie and Ben complete the five.

    My top votes went to Aureola, Sayjay and Jenni Lou!
