How I feel when shopping

How I feel when shopping

Photo by Harry Matthews

Canon EOS 5D Mark III, F7.1, 1/100, ISO 200, 300mm

Judge’s Feedback:

Well done Harry – not only does your image represent humour but it’s taken so well. The depth of field allows us to solely concentrate on the dog but the dog is placed in such a way where he’s alone in his world yet quite cared for. The woman’s feet to the right and the cloth fabric hanging to the left give us an impression of how enclosed the dog might feel and how he really wants to just get going!

The lighting the image has created a natural vignette, which brings our attention to the dog even more. His open mouth and straining to get going enroles and captivates us.

A shot well done! Great work.
