March 2012: Focus Photo Comp Results

Winning Photo

Theme : “Black As Night”

The Butterfly

Photo By Jenny Akhurst

Canon 20D,  28-135mm Canon Lens, F8, 1/100sec, ISO 400

Why Jenny won:

Jenny has not only captured the delicate, soft wings and texture of this butterfly, but she has captured a really hard subject!

The most outstanding thing about this photo is the wings. Jenny is close enough for us to see the texture, patterns and detail in this creature’s physical form. Everything is well in focus, clear and the composition is just right.

It’s an outstanding “Black As Night” photo. Well done Jenny!
