PHOTONews Challenge

Cycle Racers Don Janus of Vancouver, BC, captured this image of the Women’s race at the annual Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix. using an Olympus OMD E-M10 and an Olympus M.40-150mm f4.0-5.6 R zoom lens, shooting at 1/500th second and f/5.4, ISO 1000. “I positioned myself by the hairpin turn to capture the intensity of the moment and the concentration of the racers.” The image shows how a relatively wide aperture can be used to creatively separate a subject from the background–the image works because the colours draw your eye to the racer in the red outfit, positioned at the left vertical position of the “rule of thirds” grid.

It’s fun, it’s free, and it’s a friendly environment for photographers of all ages and skill levels.

The contest deadline for entries for the “Colours” Challenge is October 16, 2015.
