Congratulations to the winner of the 'Negative Space' challenge for the Art of Self Portraiture. Congratulations as well to the finalists and all of the submissions. So many great images made selecting a winner extremely difficult. 
The winner of our “Negative Space” Challenge is Nicole Small of One on One Art! https://www.facebook.com/oneononearts

Her winning image, which received the most votes from our community moderators during winner selection, can be seen here.

Judges’ impressions:

“A great use of negative space both literally and figuratively. The way the light played off the skin was beautiful.” ~ +Paul Bagley

“I really fell in love with the use of light and posing here. The fact that she is looking away from the image gives double meaning to the negative space. Almost as if she is leaving it behind her.” ~ +Joanna Koziara

“There is strong and heavy emotion conveyed in this image. I felt the weight of the darkness as it pushed me down into the corner with the subject, where I could barely begin to see the depth of her pain.” ~ +Sam Breach

“The composition and the light in this image are perfection.” ~ +Stacy Vitallo

“The concept and execution is what struck me. The composition and the use of just enough light to make it unique and thought provoking.” ~ +Ricardo Williams

“This image was so beautifully created and illustrates mastery of light and composition, not to mention mood, emotion, and story telling.” ~ +Lotus Carroll

“The subtle kiss of light on the subject is perfectly balanced with the overwhelming darkness around her. an exquisite use of contrast and negative space which really speaks to the spirit of this challenge.” ~ +Mark Rodriguez

“The emotional impact of this composition is what struck me the most; there's a heaviness in the darkness that seems unbearable to the subject, and I feel it for her. So well done technically, too.” ~ +Tom Tran

“Wonderful use of sparse light and a minimalistic composition that goes so well with the Negative Space theme. The beautiful pose and subtle expression leaves much to the viewer’s imagination – you can interpret this portrait in so many ways and create a story of your own around it.” ~ +Annie Weibull

Stay tuned for a featured artist spotlight on Nicole where she will answer some questions about photography and self portraiture and share more of her work with us. <3
