Judge’s Feedback:

Ann has done it again. Not only is the image well exposed but the focal length and angle suits this well designed image perfectly. Ann has positioned the camera a little off to the side which shortens the depth of field. We can see some blur to the top and base of the image which works very well to give this subject some perspective. This creative decision has created a point of reference and a place for our eyes to rest.

Post editing is always good to do when submitting for a competition. Ann has used some very nice post editing techniques (colour in particular) to emphasise and accentuate the lovely features of the image.

Well done Ann. You have created something truly beautiful. Congratulations on being the winner.

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.
