ePHOTOzine member BURNBLUE
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 BURNBLUE
's photo, 'Just a girl', was a worthy winner:
"They say don't stick your subject bang in the centre of the frame, but rules are meant to be broken and doing that here has provided a brilliant balance of old and new. The young girl, untainted by life, looks directly into our eyes. Direct front light provides large catch-lights in the eyes and just enough exposure to lift her from the sombre background.
The background, also subtly out of focus, gives us a glimpse into the girl's living conditions. The furniture worn by life provides a direct contrast to the fresh faced youngster, as does the subtle pastel pink and yellow clothing against the muted green and blue hues. Beautifully exposed, accurately focused, technical excellence with a touching subject."
POTW winners now receive a £100 (Plus £15 p&p) voucher from Albelli
