    This week, our Guest Judge was Tom M. Here is what Tom had to say…

    “This weeks POTW winner is from Frogdaily. It was posted the same forum as last weeks winner, ‘The Weekend Photography Challenge #379 Yellow/Orange/Gold'.

    This was one of the last photos that I looked at for the week, but as soon as I saw it, I knew that I had found the winner.

    Her untitled photo of an enchanted forest, of beautiful filtered golden sunlight passing through the trees and contrasting the lush green ferns on the forest floor – really caught my eye.

    The combination of vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines along with the excellent exposure and depth of field were perfect.

    The textures of the moss in the trees was nicely captured.

    The lighting of the moment was beautiful. It displayed a very high emotional impact and exceptional creativity.

    Though it appears very busy, it has a very calming mood to it.

    I would very proudly hang this photo anywhere in my house. Nicely done.

    Frogdaily, this is a wonderful image.  The moment I saw it, I knew it was a winner.  So many times, I have tried to capture an image such as this, to no avail.  You did a superb job of capturing this wonderful enchanted forest with the sunbeams.  Congratulations!!!

    Congrats Frogdaily. I've been wanting to take a shot like this for so long but have yet to achieve it. Finding the scene, being there at just the right time and then capturing the moment as you have done is not easy. Everything has to come together perfectly and your shot does this beautifully. Well done!

    Congrats Frogdaily! This is a typical “wet coast” forest. Love how you caught the rays of light adding depth and a surreal feel to it. Well done.
