Photography Contest Winners

Mar 24 2006 / Friday

First Place Photo: Andy Rogers
Caption: The photo was taken at a ramp jam at the Texas Underground bike shop in Dallas Texas. The guy in the picture was a homeless man that came in because he wanted people to listen to him play his harmonica. He wasnt asking for money or anything, he just wanted to hang out and jam. So while everybody was riding during he was playing some music. He played a really cool version of ZZ top's "Tush", He was pretty good,.I talked to him for a while and he let me take his picture. Um, the shot was just 35mm, 200 ISO, between f2.8 and f5.6 and i dont remember what the shutter speed was. The picture was taken on like April 30th, 2005, so like a year ago.

Wow! Thanks to everyone who sent in photos and entered the Sandy Carson Photography Contest! We received a ton of entries and are really happy with the big turnout and high quality of all the images. But this is a contest, and Sandy had to pick just one winner.

Sandy chose the photo above, shot by Andy Rogers, as the winning photo which will be printed in an upcoming issue of DIG BMX. Andy also has a big box of etnies gear and a one-of-a-kind print from Sandy on the way!

As far as the critique goes, well, this is what Sandy had to say about the winning photo:

"I am always fascinated by wierdos and creepers that show up at a spot while you are riding. This is the sort photo that I would totally look to capture, myself. I love the composition and the contrast of the content with a perfect exposure to boot. A weathered old dude playing harmonica next to a bunch of Bmx kids. Kick ass!"

Second Place Photo: Bryan Heiser
Caption: Cody LeFevre, tree ride-to-tailwhip during sunset, Hanover, Pennsylvania

Third Place Photo: Nitai Whitehurst
Caption: The photo is of Rob Darden, Riding trails in Greenville NC, doing a lookback over the hip last year, I was staying in Greenville for a month, and was shooting a bit with Rob, The trees had been cut down around the trails but the jump survied after Colin Mackay and Rob fixed them up, I thought this was a good looking shot, with all the branches in the foreground and the overcast sky, the photo just has a nice mood to it.

Check out the Photo Gallery with over 100 of the top photos from the contest.

  32. I dont really see how the first place photograph fitsfor an etnies ad. but Congrats - Jonathan Zizzo

  33. the photo is not for an etnies ad. it didnt have to be an "ad" shot, just a cool shot Sandy thought was really good and worthy of the pages of dig--which it is. if it was a contest for the next etnies ad then i think the second or third place photos would be best....but then again, those guys dont even ride for etnies, so that would be stupid.
