Beautiful work came out of last week’s Elegance challenge, and it was a tight race. One photographer pulled away from the pack with a particularly beautiful shot, and that was Chrisdian Winata.

Congratulations Chrisdian!

Spring Trees
It’s a nice spring day in Perth the sun is shining and the birds are singing, there’s a light breeze whistling between this group of paper bark and gum trees.

Group of onlookers. They stood in a perfect row all waiting in anticipation. What I found appealing about this shot is the diversity of the onlookers, the gritty luna park wall as a back drop(with the word ‘great’), the sound guy in the foreground and the unknown element (what are they looking at?).

Walking around the lake expect to find something interesting. When suddenly a flock of ducks jumped altogether from the side of the lake and in split seconds, my hands automatically took a shot and this is the outcome! Hope you guys enjoy it! 🙂

One of the things I love most about street photography is people, large groups, small groups, individuals. I managed to capture this perfect moment between a family group on the weekend, right after the husband had got a picture of his wife and child by the flowers. The intimacy captured was such a nice surprise.
