Farewell Sweetheart
'Farewell Sweetheart' by AntonyB

ePHOTOzine member AntonyB is 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 AntonyB's shot, 'Farewell Sweetheart' was a worthy winner:

"More reenactments appear to be springing up around the country which offer photographers a brilliant day out to capture realistic snapshots of time gone by. This one, taken at Sheringham's 40s weekend is tightly framed so any chance of background modern day distractions are excluded, allowing us to truly step back in time. The tight framing also gives us enough information in the scene and the story being portrayed. It's beautifully toned to give a more authentic feel too. Space to the right ensures the the couple are on the left third for that composition technique. Nicely done all round!"

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

Agree it is a realy lovley presentation and processing is well matched and faultless,however risking wrath of khan here but it is set up for the photos so a lot of the actual nuts and bolts (creativity) is provided by the event itself not the photographers....runs and ducks.

Quote: so a lot of the actual nuts and bolts (creativity) is provided by the event itself not the photographers

Same could be said of many subjects, take landscape photography...you turn up and nature provides the canvas/ lighting - you just compose, adjust camera settings and press the shutter at the right moment.

not same thing...beg to differ on this one !

People in the event actualy provided the look,the overall setting,so just point the camera shoot and process to your desired effect(excellent in this photo).......but most of the creative idea in the photo is not the photographer....now if the tog supplied all the componants,and arranged everything including make up/costumes I would agree ....

Landscape (er not my thing anyway) depends on the mood ,lighting and you selecting somewhere to go,anyway think that is a poor comparison to be honest... landscape togs spend hours waiting for the right light and stuff but you know all this anyway...Wink but I accept your viewpoint but don't agree !!!!Grin

Had this been taken at the actual time depicted in the photograph by a press photographer it could well have made the front page of many Daily Newspapers. A happy image which would lifted the hearts of many who had been through the same experience of parting. The woman has done well to get up to the window for that last kiss. A smacker.
'AntonyB' has taken this without anything to distinguish which station it is or where, just as the censors at the time would have liked, I suppose they might have blacked out the badges.
I wonder if the photographer got the colour film from the Yank in the picture?

A very worthy winner of the award for so many reasons.
