ePHOTOzine member LeeFisher is this week's Photo of the Week (POTW) winner.
The Photo of the Week (POTW) is picked by ePHOTOzine's founder and Editorial Director, Peter Bargh, once a week and here's why he thought 'AUTUMN STAG' by LeeFisherdeserved to win this week:
"Fabulous Autumnal wildlife shot of a stag in rutting season. The use of a long lens used at a wide aperture has given the compressed perspective with minimal focus. While shooting through closer bracken stems has resulted in a softly framed base with pockets of sharpness.
The inclusion of bracken on the stag's antler is razor sharp as are the horns that stand out against the darker background, beautifully diffused by the shallow depth of field. The central position suits the subject and generous wash of soft tones to the lower half balances perfectly with the detail in the upper half."
POTW winners currently receive a £100 voucher from Albelli. Take a look at the Photo of the Week Gallerywhere all shots that have received the award are displayed.
