CURATED PHOTOS - Surprise | December 3rd 2018 | MARC NAGAINIS

I like being surprised by art. I love art that makes me think or gives me pause. I asked you all to surprise me. Unfortunately, baring a few images below, there was nothing really surprising in this weeks submissions. Maybe its just me and my autumn malaise, but while images submitted were pretty interesting and some were technically well done, they really didn’t create any sense of surprise in me. The whale was close. I mean really, a wooden whale? awesome. The cowboy? Great shot, nice slice of life, I’d crop the top 1/3rd… Olympic Park in Montreal? Unique perspective and great lighting. Tracks? good overall composition from a unique angle. Daydreaming? I like the expression on her face and the colours of the image. SouthernDown, great colours. The Eye? catching ;) The rest? Well done enough, but not surprising. Till next time all, have a great festive season and enjoy whatever you celebrate at the end of December. Thank you all, and I’ll curate you again next year.



Every week the FSC features an article with a Curated Photostream that is open to all.  You may only submit one (1) photo and it *must* be a jpeg file and no larger than 20 MB. Please title the file "Title_Camera_Film_YourName.jpg" so that we may properly credit you if your photo is selected. Remember to check our Submit page to see all currently open photostreams. 

My next curation will be January 7th ish 2019. New Year, new experiences, new life. show me something new that you’re working on, maybe a series that’s just taking shape, a new project… Maybe there is something new in your life to share. Submit your image here.
