To celebrate the launch of the ePHOTOzine Canon Photo Gallery, one lucky member wins a brand-new Canon EOS 70D DSLR.
With a superb prize and one of the most popular themes of wildlife, we knew this competition would be popular, but didn't quite expect it to be such a record breaking entry level. We received over 2300 photos of wildlife in all shapes and sizes from ultra close insect to long range safari shots. Hope you agree that the shortlist is a stunning array of talent.
And the winner...we chose Ian's photo of the barn owl. A beautifully exposed photo showing the wings delicately highlighted thanks to back-lighting provided by the setting sun. Great position gives a wonderful profile to the owl, while the grass stems provide a glimpse of the environment. Lovely tones, thanks to the evening light, provide harmony with the subject. And positioning, flying into frame, on the right third makes the composition pleasing on the eye.
Congratulations Ian and enjoy your new Canon EOS 70D.
