Landscape Photo Competition 2016 No 4
Winning Photo

Judges Comment

We say that photos are stolen moments in time, and of course a beautiful photograph conveys much more than just a copy of that moment. This picture does just that. The sea is alive, the waves full of movement, the birds swirling around, my eye jumping from one to another… I also love the pastel tones and the clever way your darkened sky holds my gaze down in the picture. Lovely, creative work, well done you win this round!

Thanks so much! It's quite an honor to be recognized amongst so many phenomenal photos! My name is Andrea Spence, I'm located on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I shot this image last winter after a Nor'easter at Coast Guard Beach along the Cape Cod National Seashore with a Canon 5D MKIII and the 24-70/2.8L lens. I was drawn to the gulls gliding and swaying over the stormy sea looking for a meal churned up by the waves. Post processing included basic color correction in Lightroom and Photoshop.
