ePHOTOzine member Austin_Thomas
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 Austin_Thomas
' photo, 'Totally Run Off My Feet
', was a worthy winner:
"Much bird photography can be quite sterile, but that's certainly not the case here. The photo displays the usual out of focus background to avoid distractions and provide a canvas for the main subject. Using a wide aperture has also ensured a fast shutter speed to stop the motion. And that's the key seller in this photo - a superb timed moment where the owl has both feet off the ground as it runs along. This, along with the expression, adds a sense of humour. Also it's well balanced in the frame and perfectly exposed."
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
