POTW parallax
'Sunday afternoons' by parallax
 
ePHOTOzine member parallax has been crowned this week's Photo of the Week (POTW) winner.

The POTW is picked by ePHOTOzine's founder and Editorial Director, Peter Bargh, once a week and here's why he thought parallax's photo, Sunday afternoons, was a worthy winner:

"What a brilliant candid, sneakily taken by the photographer. The location is a traditional British pub that looks like it's managed to escape refurbishments through the last several decades. And what a perfect couple to add to the scene, dressed traditionally for Sunday best. The expressions are priceless - perfectly in sync allowing us to create our own narrative. I also love the way they both have their hands crossed in the same direction and position. The slightly desaturated tones give a muted and vintage feel that suits the scene without being obviously manipulated as sepia toning would have been."

POTW winners currently receive a £100 voucher from Pixum online photo printing. Take a look at the Photo of the Week Gallery where all shots that have received the award are displayed.

Thank you very much everyone for all your votes and comments.

I'll be trying to produce more of this type of work in the future.

In this case I was very lucky to find such charismatic subjects.

Congratulations Parallax. Peter Bargh's comments are right on. I would just like to add that the shot is also a good lesson in the use of natural light. Here, it places the focus on the hands. At the same time, it highlights the wood's pattern, the red cushions, and the subjects clothing. This indeed contributes to the narrative. It also places a frame around the focus between a sharp and blurry element, the table. Above, the subject's faces are scultpted by the decreasing illumination which ultimately falls on the poster. This might have distracted the viewer's attention, but, fortunately, the beer glasses counterbalance the scene. Now, a candid shot is a candid shot, but when a good photographer is guided at once by the subject and the light, this is the result. I am very impressed.
