Premium Competition 2011 Q4
Winning Photo

Judges Comment

The colors and textures in this photograph, as well as being upside down and the girl not looking into the camera make this photograph a favorite. A dynamic photo, the viewer can come back and revisit over and over again, without getting bored.

My name is Heidi and I own Beach Plum Photography ( in NY. I took this photo with my Nikon D200 at the following settings: ISO 250, 200mm, f4.8, and a shutter speed of 1/320. My goal when photographing children is to catch true moments of childhood wonder. Please see my "Mark of Excellence" winning photo from the 2011 Q2 Premium Competition here.
