Contest Theme: Action/Movement
Prize: One roll of film processed and three 5x7 prints
From the Artist: "The image is looking over Longhorn Dam in East Austin. The water is very low on this side and there’s a lot going on in the park around there. I was living in Austin at the time and was going everywhere with my Rebel XT. It died soon after this. It was really nice having a digital camera I could beat up."
What We Liked: The movement and shape of the fishing net is really beautiful and it seems to subtly mimic the shape of the shore. The ripples surrounding the fisherman draw your eye to the action as well. We also liked the angle in which the photo was taken because it frames the elements captured in a unique way.
