Commentary by Judge Professor Ito

Prof. Ryusuke Ito

The "Hokkaido Four Seasons Photo Contest" has also reached its 10th anniversary.

This time we received 1,023 entries, the largest number ever. It can be said that the work level was also the best in the past. A major feature of this contest is the widespread use of processing technologies such as RAW processing and image processing software, which resulted in a number of works that dramatically emphasized the color and light of the work. Among them, it was the feeling of the examination that "work with expressive power", so-called "strong work", was "finding power", such as not to miss the author's observation eyes and shutter chances. The surprises and pleasures of the work that discovered the feeling and beauty of the four seasons from the everyday landscape reflected in a striking expression.

"Expressway The three awards in the “Scenery of the Scenery” category were lyrical works that differed in the season, but in the evening light. "Expressway It was a seemingly difficult theme section, but there were a lot of entries that showed the possibility of expression more and more. I would like to ask many people who apply for strong works in the “Hokkaido Four Seasons” section to challenge, and I think that section is worthwhile.

Next time, with the motif of Hokkaido's nature and people's lives, I expect works with a new perspective on seasons and travel.
