February 2013: Focus Ezine Competition Results

Winning Photo

Theme : “Silver”



Photo by Neil Womersley

NIKON D80, F5.6, 1/100, ISO 200, 90mm


Judge’s Feedback:

Neil has create a beautifully exposed and interesting photo. We really enjoyed seeing the reflection of the light and flower in the silver flask. The mirror that the subjects are placed on worked to support the blown out background (which is superb), leaving us to enjoy the colour and composition.
The absence of a distinct background is a nice contrast between the underexposed subjects and the silver flask. Even though the front of the flask with the rose is underexposed, it doesn’t seem to matter that much. It still looks great.

A great job Neil, well done.

Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your photos. You have done a great job. We have a limitation of one Winner and 8 finalists photos. This is due to the wonderful success and popularity of Focus Ezine and that we are now getting a large number of entries each month. If you don’t see yours here it’s not because we didn’t like it, it’s simply because of space limitations.

    Hello Amy
    SOme time ago I registered for subscription with you and have been receiving the Focus Ezine magazine and bonuses, unfortunately I do not appear to have saved all the PDF files since my subscription was activated. Is there a link so I can collect all the issues that I don’t have? there were many bonuses with my subscription that were sent within these emails that I would also like to save to my computer if they are also available please. Thank you for your wonderful clear instructions, makes for such easy learning! Does my subscription continue indefinitely or is there a cut off date? Thanks again for your advice. Kind regards…..Su Jolly
