ePHOTOzine member MattyEdwards
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 MattyEdwards
' photo, The Performer, was a worthy winner:
"There is excellent balance of the singer in full focus and pianist filling the secondary space perfectly. The double bass player blends into the background to avoid distraction while a couple of highlight glints act as additional background bokeh. So we know it's a band, but full emphasis is on the beautiful singer who's pose looks totally in character with the set. The crop is tight, just clipping her hair (with the superbly exposed backlighting giving an highlight outline) and the lighting / costume / warm colour adds to give it a retro look that could quite easily be a still from a grand movie. You can almost hear the band playing."
