About the railway - XXIX


A brilliant example of street photography where the perfect combination of subjects, light and atmosphere have been combined to capture a cracking shot has won our first 'Photo of the Week' (POTW) prize of 2021. 

'About the railway - XXIX' by MileJanjic features strong silhouettes sat again a bright white sky and we love how the lack of colour means that shape and structure take centre-stage. Plus, the high contrast look works incredibly well to not only grab your attention but it helps create an atmosphere, too. 

The tracks and frames carrying the wiring guide the eye right through to the back of the shot while the gent on his bike adds a sense of narrative to the shot, leaving the mind wondering where he's going or ventured from. 

This image has all of the ingredients you need for the perfect street-style image and we're very happy to award it our first POTW award of the year. 

All of our POTW winners receive an EVO Plus 64GB MicroSDXC card with SD Adapter courtesy of Samsung. To be in with a chance of becoming our next POTW winner, simply upload an image to our gallery where you'll also find all of our past POTW winners.

Plus, going forward, we will also announce a new 'Photo of the Year' winner who'll win a Samsung Portable SSD T7. Each POTW winner, 52 in total, will then have their image shared in a new POTW forum where, in January 2022, we will ask you all to hit the 'like' button on your favourite images. Then, the ePHOTOzine team will count up the likes and our first 'Photo of the Year' winner will be announced.

I am highly honoured receiving the POTW. Thank you EPZ team and all EPZ members that make it possible by encouraging us to keep going. The idea of an award such as `Photo of the year` was always in my mind and came to light now. Congratulation to EPZ team for the creation of another motivational prize.
