Vivi Hanson Sacerdote
This magical capture of a little green sprite on the tube is a delightful and playful image which charms the viewer. Vivi’s choice to add blur effects further emphasises the whimsical quality of this very feminine fairy. I hope on my next tube ride I can sit next to this sweet pixie!
Connie Gardner Rosenthal
This image is the epitome of femininity. The gentle curve of the broom echoes the curve of this classically dressed Indian woman as she tends to her work. I like how Connie has established counter rhythm of the metal fence paralleling the man walking forward in the middle-ground. A beautiful composition and shot Connie!
This striking image captures the essence of femininity as the subject strides forward confident and self-assured. Vanessa’s skilful blurring of the shot, in combination with the forward, dynamic movement of this woman, makes this photograph stand out.
