Win­ner Heidi Elena

Cap­ti­vat­ing! I would have this on my wall at home, printed re­ally big. I sim­ply love the de­tail con­tained within the frame and the ran­dom na­ture of the crys­tals; but a de­light­ful com­po­si­tion seen in black and white keeps the eye mov­ing around the frame in such a way that I just wanted to look at it for ages.

This is a bril­liantly ex­e­cuted im­age. The lines, shapes and tex­tures are won­der­ful, and hav­ing the fig­ures there gives scale and di­rec­tion. I also love the sep­a­ra­tion be­tween the fig­ures and the fact their shad­ows aren’t crossed by any­thing else, which lends a sim­plic­ity that would have been miss­ing if any of those el­e­ments had touched.

A strong graphic im­age that is per­fectly fin­ished by the use of black and white. The de­tail in the shad­ows is fan­tas­tic: I can feel the felt of the hat just by look­ing at the tex­tures cap­tured. The shadow un­der the hat is in­trigu­ing and left me won­der­ing: what do her eyes say or hide? I love that ev­ery tone is in this frame, from a bright white above the lips to the black of the jacket.
