This week, ePHOTOzine's Photo of the Week accolade has been awarded to ePHOTOzine member Jamie_MacArthur with the image: 'Lady of the lake'.
The Photo of the Week (POTW) winner is chosen by the staff here at ePHOTOzine and here's why we thought Jamie_MacArthur's image deserved to win this week:
This beautiful image of a kingfisher is truly stunning. The bird has just emerged from the water, and the fast shutter speed has frozen the water droplets caused by the fast ascent perfectly, creating leading lines guiding the eye to the main focal point of the image; the stunning kingfisher.
The background has just the right amount of blur, so you can just make out the shape of the reeds and grasses, but these don't detract from the bird. Ther kingfisher is well positioned within the shot too, making use of the rule of thirds to give the bird room to breathe. A very well thought out image caught at just the right moment.
POTW winners currently receive a £100 voucher from Albelli. Take a look at the Photo of the Week Gallery where all shots that have received the award are displayed.
