September 2012: Focus Competition Results

Winning Photo

Theme : “Wet”

Focus Ezine Amy Renfrey

Photo by Micaela Ceresa

Panasonic DMC-LX2, 1/200, F5.6, ISO 100, 17mm, Auto White Balance


Why Micaela won:

Micaela is a wonderful photographer and has taken some stunning photos. We loved this photo because the light and the shutter speed were able to capture the streaking rain drops falling on this heavily drenched scene. Even though it is a colour photo it could also work as a black and white photo too. Micaela has worked well on the composition of the photo and utilised the leading lines exceptionally well.

Congrats to Micaela!
