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.
Mary wins a copy of our Photo Bundle with a free upgrade to Exposure 6 when it hits the shelves here in a few weeks. Not only that, but she also gets an Alien Skin Software t-shirt just in time for the arrival of the summer.
Don’t forget, winners of the Photo of the Month award will be in a strong position to win the Photo of the Quarter award in July. This quarter’s prize is the amazing Fujifilm X-T1 with an awesome 56mm f/1.2 lens! Enter now by posting on our Flickr page or our brand new Alien Skin Software User Group on Facebook. Good luck!
Here’s a photo of our last Photo of the Quarter winner, Marco Struijlaart of the Netherlands. As you can see, Marco was pretty pleased with his Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM lens!
