      This week the POTW goes to Chris Pook for his stunning action shot that is titled “Corporate Life”.

      Here is Chris’ explanation as to what is happening in the photograph…

      (No bulls were harmed in the making of the photo.  This is bull running in the Camargue.  Prizes are given to those who manage to snatch the most rosettes from between the horns of the bull)

      One aspect of this image, that I particularly like, are the stark tones from deep black to vibrant white.

      Chris’ processing is perfect with every tone carefully mapped.

      In addition to this winning image, we had a plethora of excellent landscape photography uploaded this last week.

      In particular, there was an Iceland landscape photo battle between Beth and Rob Eyers. Anywhere you see an Icelandic name in the title of a post… I encourage you to stop and take a look.

      Congratulations Chris. The imminent danger is really enhanced by the blurred movement and the stark contrasts. Brilliant shot!
