2015-The-Major-Prizes-Awards

Every day, Hipstography publishes a "Photo of the Day," and sometimes said photograph is so exceptional that it becomes the "Photo of the Week". Among those 365 published photographs, here are the ones that seduced both the jury and the public. From abstracts to monochromes or street photography, here are the 18 awards for the 18 photographs, in 18 different categories.

"I made a series about Ophelia, the woman who was in love with the Prince of Denmark (Hamlet). She was driven insane by the murder of her father by Hamlet and the fact that he didn’t love her as much as she did. Her insanity drove her to commit suicide in a small stream. This is obviously Shakespeare! Only shot with Robusta, my favorite."
Herbert Stegeman

Westfriedhof subway station, Munich.

"I discovered Hipstamatic in 2011 and have also been a passionate Oggler since it was introduced. I love taking pictures and living in rural southern Austria I'm always happy about a change of scenery. On a recent visit to Munich I came across this subway station and got off the train just to take pictures because I was fascinated by the lamps and the colors. I just waited until the station was nearly empty and the two people sitting were so concentrated on their phones that they didn't even notice me."
Ilse Neugebauer

0610-Sheldon-Serkin

"Here's a subject I saw from the other end of a crowded subway car. I left behind my tactful strategies, pushed my way to him and literally got in his face to shoot. He caught on immediately, turning his back to me so quickly that I was sure I missed the shot. I hopped off at next stop, checked the camera roll and smiled."
Sheldon Serkin

"Surya is a restless traveler: a guy who has devoted his existence to discovering the wonders of South Asia, including the 4 corners of his homeland India. From Pakistan to Sri Lanka, this old pilgrim has gathered the knowledge and the necessary wisdom to carry on with a humble life, filled with adventure and amazing stories to tell."
Juan Carlos Rodriguez

 

Floral and Foliage Photography of the Year Award

- Henk Goossens -

Lens:  Hannah 
Film:  Robusta 
Using:  Oggl 

0309-Henk-Goossens

"This combo worked very well in this typically Dutch grey weather: the picture is sharp, and the colors and contrast are well balanced. It gives me an incentive to go out in bad weather to use this combo. In this case, it was that kind of day… this photo taken in the vicinity of where I live, in a forest with a swamp. The high groundwater levels flood the grasslands, whereas in summer these grasslands are home to the horses."
Henk Goossens

 

Landscape Photography of the Year Award

- Maj Jones -

Lens:  Jack London 
Film:  Robusta 
Using:  Oggl 

0213-Maj-Jones

"Zelenci Springs, Slovenia"

"Winter wonderland at one of the two headwaters of the longest Slovenian river, Sava. While Sava Bohinjka originates from the mighty waterfall Savica, Sava Dolinka starts its journey at Zelenci Springs. Here water from the underground Nadiža Creek re-emerges through the porous bed of a 2 m deep lake, whose waters are noted for their deep, brilliant green. The spring and its surrounding area are named after this color ('zelen’ in English 'green’)."
Maj Jones
