ePHOTOzine member frankiej
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 frankiej
's photo, 'Emilie', was a worthy winner:
"A charming natural light portrait. There may be a centrally placed subject but the girl is perfectly balanced in the frame with the slightly out of focus surroundings. The use of a 50mm f/1.7 has ensured the sharp focused eyes and using f/4.5 delivers the shallow depth of field. I like the muted tones that allow those blue eyes to become a slightly more dominant feature and the engaging connection with child and photographer is evident."
POTW winners currently receive a £100 voucher from Pixum online photo printing
. Take a look at the Photo of the Week Gallery
where all shots that have received the award are displayed.
