May 2011: Photo Comp Results

Winning Photo

Theme: “Time Piece”

Photo By Pam Garven:


Why Pam Won:

All the photos that were submitted were just wonderful. Pam’s photo seemed to stand out simply because of the gentle, warm light, the soft tones and the gorgeous short depth of field. We loved the way she’s captured the soft light and placed the subjects right next to a mirror. A clever method of a) gaining more light and b) creating the optical illusion of more depth.

Unfortunatley Pam has not given any details but she’s told us that she’s recently brought a 50mm 1.8 lens. She’s done a great job and we are proud to display her photo..

Well done Pam!
