Foot - 40pts, First place
Sean Slevin, Co Wexford, Ireland Canon EOS 500D, 28mm, 1/5sec at f/16, ISO 400 Sean had the idea for this image in his mind ever since he saw the 2002 film Long Walk Home (aka Rabbit-Proof Fence). He wanted to show the sparseness of the landscape (actually his bedroom) and a strong sense of scale in close proximity. Placing his camera on the floor, he set the self-timer and held various poses for 20 minutes in natural light. Next he photographed a dead moth that he found and merged the two images in Photoshop. Judges say, 'Brilliantly planned and executed, everything about this image works the light, the angle, the clean background, the juxtaposition of the two subjects. Sean is a very talented photographer.'
