Picture of the monthWinner picture
I adore this image! Agusfer has captured a moment that really makes me smile. There’s a sense of humour in this photograph, and for me, that’s a winner. Life can be tricky at times and despite our best efforts to keep moving forward, we sometimes get a little bit lost along the way, just like this pigeon!Despite being stunning birds with lots of character and personality, pigeons are often overlooked as photographic subjects. I really love that Agusfer has transformed a common creature and an everyday scene into an epic piece of artwork. They have a great eye for story and have timed this moment with a lot of creativity. Everything just works! The perspective and composition, the wonderful shapes and lines and the thoughtful black and white toning bring this photograph to life.My favourite part is that the pigeon has become a character in a story that lots of us can relate to!
Contest's terms and conditions
Start the new year as you mean to go on: this month we're asking you to show us an image that sums up the theme 'Forward'! It could be a literal street sign showing you the way, or a more abstract interpretation of a glowing sunrise, or a Macro capture of the very first new shoots of Spring. Perhaps you'll try panning and creatively capturing motorsport, or focusing more on fast-moving birds in flight – whatever you decide, we hope that this challenge will begin your 2021 on a positive note!
