Winning Photo

Judges Comment

This is a well-captured and honestly simple portrait with great light, the eyes in focus and aligning with the color of the stripes. She could be thinking anything, and that makes it timeless.

Photographers Comment

My name is Andrea Spence. I was playing around with my new 85/1.2 lens on my favorite model. I was thrilled to nail the focus here at f/1.2, right before she decided she didn't want to have her photo taken anymore that day. Taken with a Canon 5D MKII, 85/1.2L at ISO 200. Minimal post processing in Photoshop CS5. Thank you so much for the Mark of Excellence recognition amongst so many fabulous images.,
