Every day, Hipstography publishes a "Photo of the Day," and sometimes said photograph is so exceptional that it becomes "Photo of the Week". Among those 365 published photographs, here are the ones that seduced both the jury and the public. From abstract photography to monochromes, to street photography, here are the 21 awards for the 21 photographs in 21 different categories.

"She was a Phantom of delight; When first she gleamed upon my sight; A lovely Apparition, sent; To be a moment's ornament." - William Wordsworth

"After a record warm autumn, a cold snap moved into the area bringing a few inches of snow. The weather then turned sunny and frigid with record cold temperatures and beautifully sparkly snow scenes - which is unusual for our normally warm, dark and wet weather at this time of year.
This photo was taken in the early morning on a trail heading towards the sea just as the sun was rising over the hills. I was squatting to take a photo of the snowy grasses against the distant sea and sky, when this happy dog unexpectedly bounded into my photo. I think we shared the same moment of joy in the snowy morning!"

"Being a self-conscious sort, I am drawn to subjects that don't give a fuck what anyone thinks and are totally comfortable with themselves, as is the case with these amazing women I encountered at Brighton Beach."
Sheldon Serkin

"I work in a large mirrored cube that sends light reflections streaming into the urban canyon in all directions. This particular reflection takes place in a small alley across the street for just a few minutes in the middle of the day. For this shot, I waited for someone interesting to pass before the light shifted. The trick is to get someone willing to walk in the light, which most people avoid because it's so bright."
Molly Porter

"This picture was taken at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on March 25th. The painting is by Mark Rothko. I often go to this painting because it can yield such colorful images. This schoolboy with his red backpack and shirt was perfect."
Susan Rennie

"Scanno is a small town in the Abruzzo region. It was the most photographed village in the '50s and '60s by great photographers like Henry Catier Bresson, Gianni Berengo Gardin and Mario Giacomelli. But even before the photographers, there were painters and engravers who captured the local women's beautiful costumes. Today, you can easily arrive in the village with a camera around your neck and not be considered a 'paparazzo'."
Nicola Casamassima

"We got our first snow last night. Although I am no fan of winter, it is always amazing to awake and discover the landscape completely transformed in the morning. Enticed by the scenery, I went for a short drive (as much as time would permit) and took this photo. Living in an open and flat landscape, naked branches against the white snow and an overcast winter sky is about as dramatic as the scenery gets here."
Jessika Johansson

 

Landscape Photography of the Year Award

Michaela Meerkatz

Film:  Hackney

"This is my place in the hinterland of Senigallia in Central Italy, a very peaceful and bucolic piece of land. During those wonderful days before Christmas, we were lucky enough to always be a bit above the fog coming in from the sea. In this early morning picture I used this week’s contest combo of Hipstamatic Sardinia which, as I found, excellently expressed the mood composed by the silence, nature at rest, the creamy fog in the valleys and the reddish tones created by the rising sun."
Michaela Meerkatz

"The Kiss"

"This picture was taken in Vienna, in a big leisure park called 'Prater'. As the merry-go-round swung past, which it doesn't do very often these days, I managed to capture this photo. I like the fact that most of the picture is slightly out of focus, but 'the kiss' is obvious!"
Christine Mignon
