May 2012: Focus Photo Comp Results

Winning Photo

Theme : “Orange”


Photo By Katy Robertson

Canon 40D

Why Katy won:

Katy’s ability to capture such detail and create a beautiful pattern and composition really impressed us. We loved the way she captured the depth of field- not always an easy thing to do with a flower up close. But she was very careful in choosing her dof and it worked masterfully.

Katy chose a very soft and dim lighting, but you can see the detail and the beauty of the flower up close. Everything is well exposed and she has done a sensational job.
