August 2011: Photo Comp Results

 Winning Photo

Theme :  “Silver”


Silver Harley


Photo by Lynda Fletcher

Canon EOS550D, 1/160sec, f9, ISO 200, 24mm

Why Lynda won:

We loved the way Lynda captured such striking contrasts in the tone of the photo. It looks like it’s a black and white film photo with the gorgeous shine, the very deep black and the contrast that this photo gives.

Not only does Lynda’s photo offer us a fantastic “tonal experience” but her choice of which way and what angle she chose to shoot the subject offers us another level in dramatic photography. The fact that she’s decided to shoot this way, with the pipes sweeping across the photo gives the photograph power and drama.

Well done Lynda!
