It’s Sunday again, and I bet M45‘s readers know what that means!
Kicking things off are two new sepia photos from last week’s champ, Steve Raley:
Two entries from new contributor, Janna Bissett:
One photo from long-time reader Julie Soulen:
And, finally, one Chicago photo from frequent contributor, David Sullivan:
I want to give a special thanks this week to Steve Raley, who got the word out about Sepia Sunday on his blog, Photogrunt, and suggested that I look to Etsy’s POE forums (Photographers of Etsy) for new participation. It’s thrilling when M45 receives submissions from new contributors- thrilling!
And now, for the winner-
This week, the sidebar space goes to Janna Bissett for this photo of a Birch tree:
This photo has wonderful simplicity- almost to the extent of taking on an abstract quality. It’s a good example of when data loss in the details (mostly the blacks) can heighten a photo’s impact rather than hinder it. The extreme contrast between the shadows and the whiteness of the bark draws the viewer’s eye onto the subject of the photo: the Birch tree.
Don’t forget to check out Janna’s winning photo in the sidebar and visit her photoblog!
As always, M45 is already accepting photo entries for next week’s Sepia Sunday. You can find the Entry Details at the top of the page.
