September 15, 2013: Amsterdam Photo Club is proud to announce Melanie Lemahieu as the winner of the summer photo contest of 2013. Melanie has used many good techniques to focus attention on the subject in the photo, like shallow DOF and a good composition. Beyond this, her photo has a raw vibrancy and many capturing details, as your eyes start to wonder through the photo. The expression of the man’s face, the firm grip around the fish, the mood of the t-shirt and the tension of pulling a fishing line with a hook on it. The photo clearly express summer. But with a hint of dark colors and contrasts.
