There were A LOT of pictures uploaded this week. That always makes this POTW choice so difficult.
I was quite enamored with a shot by, Sven Midensol, that was uploaded into the monotone/duotone challenge. It depicts a young girl, in a crowd, looking upward and reaching for something. I found the situation, the background, the crowd's expressions, and in particular the expression and body language of the girl quite fascinating. However, there was something that didn't quite resonate with me. It felt as if the story was incomplete. So, I mention it here, because it is worth your time to go look at it.
When there is so much competition… I often resort to asking myself… Okay… what have I not seen before? Or, what have I not seen recently? Or, is this a common subject that has been depicted in a unique way?
Given those thoughts, I have awarded the POTW to Frogdaily for her product shot of the gold heart shaped necklace that was uploaded into the “Reflections” challenge.
We don't see a lot of still life (outside of Valerie) or product shots here.
My background in commercial photography helps me to realize the difficulty level in achieving this type of image. It's evident to me that she put a great deal of care and effort into the creation, (especially the lighting), of this photograph.
She has produced a product shot that any commercial studio would be happy with.
Congratulations to Frogdaily for her POTW!

Wonderful picture, Frogdaily. You really knocked this out of the park.

Congrats Frogdaily, beautiful study, The colours really jump out and say ‘look at me' against the dark bg. I guess you couldn't ask for more in a product shot.
