Theme : “Purple”

Judge’s Feedback:

One of the most striking things about this image was it’s composition. The sweeping, curving shape of the ornament, along with it’s vibrant purple, gives rise to motion and movement, even though we’re looking at a stationery object.

The photo has everything to make a successful winning shot; well exposed, simple composition, nothing distracting in the background and leading lines where they most appeal.

A great shot, well done Marion!
