Photographers Comment

Thank you for this Mark of Excellence. My name is Henrik Spranz and I'm living in Austria. This photo has been shot Tuscany during autumn with a Sigma 180 mm F2,8 EX APO Macro OS HSM on a Canon 5d Mk iii. Bokeh and the part of negative space plays a big role in my work and all you can see is out of the cam. I just do some basic RAW development with tonal correction, white balancing, optimizing contrast, de-noising and sharpening.
