ePHOTOzine member Buffalo_Tom
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 Buffalo_Tom
's photo, 'Arleta.', was a worthy winner:
"There are some great photos appearing from this recent shoot. The superb set is as a result of a combined effort between photographer, stylist and make up artist, so we can be sure that the model and location are good. It's then up to the photographer to maximise the moment. This one appealed because of the balance of two main elements; the framed picture/photo and model, both equally balanced, but focus on the model is maintained.
Choice of aperture, exposure, composition and processing have helped ensure a wonderful result here. The tight crop provides impact. The look of the model and blurred photo connect perfectly to provide an outline for a story, while the similar overall monotone with subtle colour differentiation adds drama. The viewer's eyes are automatically drawn to the eyes of the model where the expression gives clues to the mood."
