      After first seeing this photograph titled, “Into the Light”, last week, I was 99.9% sure this was going to be the POTW.

      It fulfills virtually everything that you might want from a photograph. It has a very interesting composition, its filled with story possibilities, it has a perfect balance of contrast and brightness (despite the difficult backlighting), the color is soothing, and quite frankly it’s just a gorgeous shot to look at.

      Congratulations Graham! It’s a beautiful picture.

      I have two runner-ups this week.

      First, we have Charmaine. She is really upping the ante on image quality around here. We’re all going to have to start clicking a little harder to keep up with her. She’s won the POTW several weeks in a row recently, and quite frankly this image is worthy as well. But hey! We have to spread the love around. I’ll post a link below to Charmaine’s wildlife shot below, and believe me, it is simply outstanding.

      Secondly, we have Erik. I like Erik’s work a lot, because he’s willing to take chances. He doesn’t always follow the formula. This photograph works especially well for me, as I love abstract and semi-abstract views of things. This shot is very interesting, because it relies heavily on the reflection and translucence of light for its effect. It takes a well-trained eye to spot something like this. I’ll post a link to Erik’s shot below as well.

      Congrats too to Charmaine for your amazingly expressive capture of the Baboon and Erik for your mind-bending architectural shot. Both worthy winners.
