The winner this fortnight is...David Reichert from Melbourne!!
Congratulations David! You have won a $100 photography voucher! This image really stood out to us! What a brilliant and creative use of contrast in colour.
Red and green are opposite colours, so when used together they can create such a dramatic effect. The placement of the green leaf slightly off centre also helps to add punch to the composition, whilst keeping its simplicity and effectiveness.
The theme for next fortnight is Moody Street Photography
Photography is all about playing with light, but for this theme we're taking things a little darker.
This is all about exploring the dark, moody and black&white side to photography, and creating some hauntingly atmospheric shots with light and shadow.
Winter is the perfect time for creating some moody shots, as the sun sets a little earlier, and the fading sunlight creates interesting shadows across the city.
