alien skin photo of the month march 2014

We’re pleased to unveil the Flickr Photo of the Month for March. It’s been another month of fantastic submissions, but this great photo by DhkZ caught our eye for its quiet, minimalistic simplicity.

Sometimes less is more, and that is certainly the case with this image showing the after effects of a snowstorm in Ontario, Canada. DhkZ has done a great job of composing the image well using the rule of thirds and the B&W treatment in Exposure successfully knocks out any trace of colour to minimise distractions. The subtle hint of the flowing horizon line leads the eye to the copse of trees. The whole image comes together to evoke a feeling of tranquility and silence.

DhkZ wins a copy of our Photo Bundle along with a t-shirt for his efforts. Along with our other monthly winners, he also becomes a favourite to win a Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8 L or an EF 85 f/1.2L lens in our Photo of the Quarter competition. We’re still a week away from the end of March though, so hurry to get your entries in to have a shot at winning one of these great lenses yourself! Check out the details here.

Congrats again to DhkZ and good luck to everyone as we look to wrap things up and draw the first winner.

Cheers,

Joe
