ePHOTOzine member Nick_w
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 Nick_w
's photo, 'Sensuality
', was a worthy winner:
"This week's POTW is a little different than the normal selection. It's far simpler than many of the creations, but in this case less is definitely more.
Nick has lit the flower extremely well and chosen black and white to acentuate the sensual nature of the shot. Taking influence from Mapplethorpe, the flower has almost sexual tendancies. To ensure maximum sharpness the photo was focus stacked (several photos at slight different focus points all blended to give full front to back sharpness). The tones are exquisite, helped by the rich black background that ensures the flower's lights and shades are delivered to maximum effect. Fine art at its best."
POTW winners currently receive a £100 voucher from Pixum online photo printing
