whispers of silence

A striking image of a cormorant perched on a large branch in a body of water has won the Photo of the Week accolade from the team here at ePHOTOzine. Images chosen to win the accolade win the photographer a 64GB MicroSD card with SD adapter courtesy of Samsung. 

The image 'Whispers of Silence' was taken by ePz member Diggeo, and here's why we thought he deserved to win the accolade: 

This is a very neat and modern looking square crop image that wouldn't look out of place in a trendy gallery. The sky is moody and leads down to a silhouetted horizon consisting of trees and powerlines shrouded in mist, giving the shot plenty of atmosphere. 

The still waters of the lake contrast with the rugged, dark textures of the tree branch which emerges from the depths with its interesting shapes and twists. There's a partial reflection of the tree branch which further emphasises the stillness of the water. The branch leads the eye to the main subject of the shot - a lone cormorant which is looking out across the water. 

The image is very timely, capturing the feelings of loneliness and isolation many people may have currently. 

Please note that there may be a delay in receiving your prize due to the current situation. See all the images that have been awarded the POTW accolade in the Photo of the Week gallery.
