ePHOTOzine member ruurd 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 ruurd's photo, 'beaty' was a worthy winner:
“Photographing dragonflies is not one of the easiest challenges in the photography world, but ePHOTOzine member ruurd has seized the moment and managed to not only capture one as it rests but also in amazing sharpness from tip to to toe. Its spread wings create an almost flower like shape and the subtle colours add to deliver a visually pleasing fine art piece. We like the shallow depth-of-field that has resulted in a subdued wash of background colour to allow the blue in the body of the insect to glow and the detail in the wings is exceptional.”
Winter days leave us with a shortage of daylight hours for photography but you don't have to venture far to photograph birds during this season, making them a perfect subject choice.
