Reader SunShots: Spring

The first winner in the
Reader SunShot series is
<b>Kevin Moore</b> for his photo
of Meadowlark Gardens Mill in
Mount Vernon, Va. Here is a critique
by Bob Hamilton, The Baltimore
Sun's director of photography:<br>
<br>
"I was impressed by the overall
quality of the images and the
imagination. My winner is Kevin
Moore of Perry Hall, whose username
is 'crabsandbeer' on baltimoresun.com. His shot is of what
appears to be weeping cherry trees
next to a bed of daffodils.<br>
<br>
"This image uses color to full
advantage with the deep greens of
the daffodils making the yellow
flowers pop for the viewer. But
what I really love about the picture
is how the sinewy black trunk and
branches contrast with all that
color in the image.<br>
<br>
"It takes what could have been a
routine symmetrical composition
and elevates it to a new level."
