Flickr Photo of the Month

By |May 29th, 2014|Alien Skin Software, Competitions, Photography|1 Comment

The Photo of the Month award for May goes to this striking image entitled "sheltered" by Mary Cufflin from Leicester, England. In my book, a successful image is one that makes you think. Often, a photo can leave you with more questions than answers and technical perfection is seldom relevant. This photograph leaves me feeling uncomfortable - the centred subject, the negative space, the fact we don't see the child's face; but it works because it makes me stop and think.
