Winning Photo

Theme : A Touch Of Orange In Your Life


Street lamp through trees


Photo by Denis Sharpington

Nikon D5100  , F4, 1/125, ISO 1000, 70mm

Judge’s Feedback:

Denis has taken a very, very creative photo. The way the orange light falls almost takes on a life of it’s own. As the light hits the green leaves it takes on not only a life, but a personality and an identity of it’s own. The orange light forms a distinct shape that is different to any of the other elements in the image.

Towards the top left of the image we see some cold looking branches, void of life. Towards the other side of the photo there is life signified by the presence of the green leaves. Smack bang in the middle is a warm, orange burst of energy which lifts and offers life to this image.

An incredibly creative image simply created by light and a keen eye.

Well done Denis!
