An image of a ram standing proudly by a river in the snow has been awarded the POTW accolade. 

The image, titled 'By the River Dochart' was taken by ePHOTOzine member PaulHolloway and here's why we thought it deserved to win the prize:

This is a very classical image that almost looks like a painting. The mist and the snow on the floor combined with the frost in the trees creates a very white colour palette, drawing the eye to the beige and brown tones of the ram with its impressive horns. 

It's looking straight and the camera and this coupled with the fact that it is a fine specimen gives the image an amost regal feel - something that you might see in pride of place in a stately home. 

The rule of thirds has been used well to offset the ram from the centre of the frame and leave room for the abstract forms of the branches and shrubs. The angle of the river also leads the eye through the picture really well. This is a gorgeous image that's very adept for the time of year. 

Winners of the POTW accolade currently receive a 32GB SDHC card from Samsung. See all the winners of the award in our Photo of the Week gallery.
