The Lomo Hipshot Showdown - Pastel Dreaming Winners Announcement

If you thought we overslept and forgotten about this showdown, you’re entirely wrong about that! As we are clearly awake to announce our winners!

Normally, when one wakes up from a dream, he/she is usually confused and quite unsure of what had happened and when they try to recall what it was, it would be hard for them to remember as it is already hazy and its colours are about to fade out from their conscious, waking state of mind.

Even Neuroscientists can’t really tell if dreams really do have their own colours and that each of them have their own meanings. With this, our ever brilliant and discerning community of Lomographers joined the quest in search for that true chromatic value of pastel dreams!

As with the extended run of this Hipshot Showdown, we received quite a lot of entries which we might consider the most impressive batch of photos to compete so far! But there will be only one winner and the Jury chose this otherworldly shot by Mselderhuis!

While this one taken by Qrro had left almost everyone in the community in awe with this amazing entry!
