April 2011: Photo Comp Results

Winning Photo

Theme: “Street Signs”

One Way Up


Photo By Lynda Fletcher:

Canon EOS 550D,  F11, 1/80sec, 24mm FL.

Why Lynda Won:

This photo won because of the clever way Lynda has coupled beautiful lighting with striking composition. The sun’s bright rays to the right of the picture add an interesting to the photo, in fact, it enrols us in the scene even more. The composition has created a feeling of distance and height. The angle at which Lynda shot this, and the focal length, has given us a fantastic perspective into city life.

Well done Lynda!
