Photography by Laura Lee
Canon EOS Rebel T3, 90mm Focal Length; f/14, 1/125, ISO 400

Laura Lee is a professional photographer from Tennessee who began her love of photography and travel in 1981 when she began working for an airline company. In addition to doing commissioned work for clients, Laura's work is also featured on Bigstock, Fotalia and Dreamstime. She loves capturing moments in time and creating memories; her photography spans portraiture to landscape and her images are as special as the people and scenery upon which her camera gazes.
We were particularly taken with this image Laura sent us, as it is a sincere and gentle window into the youngsters' personalities.
Generally high-key, the portrait pops as the children's pink shirts and deep eyes contrast against the unique white pumpkins in the background.
In Laura's own words, "The white pumpkins were unique, and I loved the contrast of the white pumpkins with the girls' hair and eyes. The white pumpkins also served as a field of white reflectors to illuminate their backs! You can almost feel the warmth of the sun and reflection as they sit together." What a great way to begin our February selections!
Congratulations Laura on your special way with the camera! Although she did not ask us, we've taken the liberty of including a link to Laura's photography website, because there are many compelling and beautiful pictures in her portfolio that are definitely worth looking at. You can see more of her work at WallybirdPhotography.com.

Sheldon Sundy did a slam-dunk with this stunning late January sunset picture depicting a silhouetted Johannesburg skyline against a brilliant golden sky. Framing the silhouette within the bottom third, Sheldon allowed the skyline to punctuate the larger evening sky. Good call.
Another thing our Submissions Review Team liked about this image is the way in which the buildings and towers appear so diminutive, as if they are dwarfed by the immense and powerful sky above.
We receive hundreds of sunset and sunrise pictures submitted to FreePhotoCourse.com's Contributors' Gallery each year, but the vast majority of them are just that; beautiful sky pictures but nothing more than sky. This particular sunset image is a breath of fresh air, in that, there's something that off-sets that sky, making it even more spectacular.
Good job Sheldon!
Photography by Dianne Rohlsen
Dianne Rohlsen took many pictures of people dressed-up in outlandish and whimsical costumes during an event in NYC, but these two shots stole the show, in terms of comparing two very different and large 'globes'. We love the festive air and excitement suggested by her image of the giant Christmas ornament. While it could have been a basic snapshot, there are elements that make the picture very interesting and attractive. The colorful reflections in the water, the angled view of the Radio City Music Hall and the many people milling about (is that Elmo???) all combine to provide for an exciting moment in time.
Dianne's image of the big globe at Columbus Square in Manhattan is a winner on the basis of her perspective and the angled skyscraper framing the right side of the image. This is interesting photography that effectively compares two large landmarks in very different ways. Congratulations Dianne!
