ePHOTOzine's Photo Of The Week Winner - Find out why this week's Photo Of The Week won the accolade.
ePHOTOzine member pronature 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 pronature's photo, 'kite in the snow', was a worthy winner:
"Paul used a long lens and high ISO800 to sharply record this Red Kite as it flies in the snow. It's a well framed and balanced composition. The fast shutter speed has ensured the bird is frozen in motion while the snow flakes over the scene have just enough blur to give a sense of the wintery conditions and movement of snow. The bird is beautifully exposed against the dark moody backdrop with a touch of sunlight along the edges of the feathers to lift it from the background. The shallow depth of field reduces the background to a blur with shapes of the trees giving a hint of the environment."
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.
