This photograph, taken by David Pullum, was awarded 8th place in the Silhouettes, Shadows & Good Light category for the WPJA's 2012 Q2 Contest.
- Nice seeing/capturing of dramatic light during what is usually an undramatic, even quiet moment. Stepping forward to lose the right 20% and the top 15% and the bottom 5% would really make this stronger and bring out the shoes which are an important subtext within the image.
- This is a strikingly delicious image caressed in those beautiful saturated colors that blend furtively into the darkness surrounding them. It's a wonderful image with excellent composition pulled together with incredible lighting. All the components of this image brings us directly to the focal point, accented by that bright flash of light behind the subject.
