Shot of the Year 2011

2016-10-24T11:08:47+00:00 By |Action and Adventure Photography, Featured Photographers, Hotshots, Macro Photography, Nature and Wildlife Photography|

We got to Photo Critic's first Shot of the Year Competition. The winning shot went to Pietman Muller with his image "Klikbek". This was really an outstanding shot; a once in a lifetime moment captured by him. Elsje Wiid, one of the five judges, wrote, "Incomparable moment! There is a great amount of different textures with different focuses in the picture and this creates and interesting effect on the eye with a lot of focused detail, especially on the squirrel. The picture silently whispers an atmosphere of ‘awe.’ Perfect timing of capturing both animals in the right place - the space between the two contributes to the composition. The bug is amazingly frozen in the most perfect spot in the picture plane, with a fast shutter speed – the effect on the wings adds a bit of blur to the picture. Words can’t describe it. People have to view it to believe it" ~ Elsje Wiid.
