The Hat
'The Hat' by Richsr

ePHOTOzine member Richsr 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 Richsr's photo, 'The Hat', was a worthy winner:

"Richard set out to create some strong black and white shapes using a model's facial profile. He's achieved that here. Her black hat provides a subtle S curve to compliment similar curves seen in the contours of the model's face.

The careful lighting and choice of black background ensure the composition is bold and graphical. The crop is tight and there's light just where it needs to be to lift the black hat from the black background.

There are suggestions to be sharper on the face and hat, but I actually like the softness. Sharp edges are what we expect from a graphical image with such contrast, but the softness emulates the fragile nature of the skin."

POTW winners now receive a £100 (Plus £15 p&p) voucher from Albelli - the Photo Book experts. Take a look at the Photo of the Week Gallery where all shots that have received the award are displayed.

It's exactly the way it should be! Forget about critics demanding for more sharpness. Man Ray would have taught them about photography Wink
It's a great photograph!
