Are you sitting comfortably

A striking and brightly coloured image of a dragonfly on a leaf has been awarded the Photo of the Week accolade this week. The award is given to an image that the team thinks stands out from the bunch, from the images that were uploaded to the gallery in the past week. 

The image is titled 'Are you sitting comfortably...then I shall begin...' and it's by ePz member MacroAli. Here's why we thought it deserved to win the accolade this week:

This is a charming image of an inquisitive looking dragonfly perched on a leaf. It almost reminds us of a children's TV character, with its large eyes and hairy head! We love the bright blue of the creature which radiates from the image. The dark grey background works well to emphasise this colouring. The bright green of the leaf adds an abstract curve into the mix, mirroring the curve of the creature's large, bulbous eyes and juxtaposing the sharp angles of the creature's legs.

Rule of thirds has been used to good effect here, placing the creature off-centre to the left, adding a quirky element to the capture. The dragonfly almost looks as though it's resting its elbow on the leaf ready to impart its wisdom, and it definitely brought a smile to our faces on this gloomy Monday morning!

Photo of the Week winners currently receive a 64GB MicroSD card courtsey of Samsung - there may be a delay in sending these out due to the current situation with Covid-19. See all the winners of the accolade in the POTW gallery.
