'- high hopes -' by cirrusminor
ePHOTOzine member cirrusminor is this week's Photo of the Week (POTW) winner.
The Photo of the Week (POTW) is picked by ePHOTOzine's founder and Editorial Director, Peter Bargh, once a week and here's why he thought '- high hopes -' by cirrusminor deserved to win this week:
"New born baby photos can be quite predictable, especially those cliche strong man carrying baby shots. But here a new spin has been given, with the use of textured layers and conversion to black and white. The tonal range is spot on for the subject and composition is well considered.
The added texture layer with clouds gives a feeling of natural creation - a kind of beginning of life. The edge of the frame where the man's arms come into view blends with the texture to give a weak vignette and helps draw attention to the centre of the frame. Subtle blurring of the distant baby and mans arm also ensure focus is on the baby's face which is where the viewers eye is drawn. Quality work."
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.
