Announcing the winner of the Close to Home : Batac City photowalk. Lemwel Duldulao's entry of the statue of General Artemio Ricarte.
These are the words from Stuart's e-mail, "As I mentioned in my Flickr comments, I really like the placement of the statue within the blurred background elements and how the colors of the background and the statue complement each other. It looks as if the figure is striding across the photograph. I also like the POV, shooting up from underneath the statue, giving it a bit of a "larger than life" feel. Finally, the fact that the photographer has the figure looking/striding out of the photograph, breaking the "rule" of having the subject look into the frame, gives the photography rebel in me a bit of satisfaction. Again, well done!"
