ePHOTOzine member pronature
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 pronature
's photo, 'kite in the snow', was a worthy winner:
"Paul used a long lens and high ISO800 to sharply record this Red Kite as it flies in the snow. It's a well framed and balanced composition. The fast shutter speed has ensured the bird is frozen in motion while the snow flakes over the scene have just enough blur to give a sense of the wintery conditions and movement of snow. The bird is beautifully exposed against the dark moody backdrop with a touch of sunlight along the edges of the feathers to lift it from the background. The shallow depth of field reduces the background to a blur with shapes of the trees giving a hint of the environment."
POTW winners currently receive a £100 voucher from Pixum online photo printing
