'the light' by maratsuikka

ePHOTOzine member maratsuikka 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 maratsuikka's photo, 'the light', was a worthy winner:

"There's something a little special about Mara's miniature landscapes. Most of us chase around after a butterfly hoping it will land on a nearby flower so we can photograph it, wings spread, to display its beautiful colours and patterns. Not Mara, he uses a long lens and photographs the landscape as the butterfly flits through the scene.

Capturing the insect mid flight and late into the day using a wide aperture ensures a spectacular display of backlit elements with the background of out of focus highlights creating a diffused pattern. You can almost hear the sounds of nature as you absorb the subtle details in one of his photographs. This one has a panoramic format to emphasise the path of the butterfly and allow the letter box style border to give a cinematic feel. The butterfly may be small in frame but its position makes it a prominent feature. Wonderful."

POTW winners now receive a £100 (Plus £15 p&p) voucher from Albelli - the Photo Book experts. Take a look at the Photo of the Week Gallery where all shots that have received the award are displayed.

What a fantastic photo. Apart from the technical achievements, which are amazing, it has a wonderfully candid feel. Almost as though the butterfly seemed to casually wander by and just happen to be there.
