Welcome to the winner announcement for the first #TMAXParty for 2017!

We received a total of 73 votes over the course of the voting period and whilst the winner walked away with 25% of the votes, second and third place were separated by only six percent and we had a tie for third place.

There were some fantastic photographs posted during March’s post week and just so you know, the judges and I are busy trawling through April’s posts as we speak.

Still, this is about March 2017, so let’s crack on with the runner’s up and winner.

Congratulations Zheng!Here’s Zheng’s winning entry. Here’s a little detail from the man himself on how the shot came together.

Over to you, Zheng.

HBO and the Grace Building, NYC – Kodak T-Max 400

This was shot with a Minolta X-370 with 50mm lens at Bryant Park, New York City. The image was HBO building on the left and Grace building on the right. The curves and lines of those two buildings always attract my eyes whenever I pass by. I have been shooting many buildings around the park with my digital camera. I decided to use the BW film to capture the contrast and lines with Kodak T-MAX 400 when EMULSIVE announced a March TMAX Party.

Congratulations again to Zheng on a cracking job and good luck to you all for April’s shortlist (details of which are coming soon).

With #TMAXParty done for 2017, it’s nearly time to kick off our next party, which is for all things Fuji Neopan. Yes, that includes Fuji Neopan 400, 1600, 400CN and Acros 100 (Neopan Acros 100, to give it it’s full name). Details coming soon.

Keep shooting, folks!
