The official winning shot for Alien Skin Software’s April Photo of the Month is listed below. As a quick reminder, the monthly photo-sharing theme was Anticipation.
Jaime Ibarra joined us this month as our guest judge. We selected the top shots from the group and compared notes with Jaime on which one should take the title for submissions from April 2016.
Congratulations to Paula Bell!
When discussing the winning image, Jaime said, “This shot is really nice. I like opposing juxtaposition in artworks, which this image portrays nicely. The background appears rainy and tree-filled, so it suggests a cool location near a waterfall. I immediately think that kids would be ecstatic and bubbly about a scene like that, but the child’s somber expression says otherwise. Why is she so serious? That makes my mind fill in narration gaps in the image, which gets me thinking. I’m immediately drawn into a story. I love that aspect of the photo. Well done!”
