November 2011: Photo Comp Results

Winning Photo

Theme : “Red”


Photo by Gina Thomas Johnson

Canon 1000D
Lens 50 mm 1:1.8 F

Why Gina won:

We loved the way Gina was able to create not only some excellent editing, but a sense of mystery. What IS in that red bag? Where is the person going and why? What is the story of the red bag? Such is our intrigue!

With the use of the black and white medium and the dim, mysterious lighting like this, (coupled with the stark red bag), Gina has managed to create something truly artistic and so very interesting.

A wonderfully fascinating photo.
