Regis Rampnoux, of Paris, France wins this month his First Place Color Print Ting Portrait 4. Regis tells me that she is the same model who won in December 2015. Regis also won First Place in Mono Print this month.
The judge, Arthur Jacoby, says “I think that this is a lovely portrait that captures the beauty and sophistication of the subject. I like the soft colors, the tension between the direction of her shoulders and the direction of her head, which I think adds some dynamic tension to the image. The way the photographer has used light and shadows to accentuate the curves of her body and face as well as the way the vignette frames the subject are, in my opinion, exquisite. For me, the hat adds an element of style to this beautiful lady”.
