The Guest Judge for the POTW was Federico Alegria.
Here is what Federico had to say-
“This is one of those photographs that immediately blows you away. Lynne shows here an extremely accurate anticipatory skill mixed with the power of having clear ideas in our minds.
Beyond being holistically perfect (composition, exposure, focusing and POV), this photograph has a deeper layer of visual content. And that is, the poetic narrative embedded in it.
Last but not least, (in words of Roland Barthes), the “punctum” in this photograph is tightly wrapped around the turtle’s paw, and the crossing line. Personally, I think that the photograph wouldn’t be able to deliver such a powerful aesthetic experience if it wasn’t for that perfect timing.
Kudos Lynne for capturing the “decisive moment” in this frame.
PS: I think that this is one of the best photos I’ve seen this year in Light Stalking.”
