February 2014 PPD Print of the Month (POM)

Claudia Peterson, of San Jose, CA, won this month with her first place Star Mono Mr. Rubenstein. It is her third win this contest year. This month’s judge, Gene Morita explains:

“This was chosen over the others because it’s a beautiful portrait of an older man. I liked that he was all dressed up for the shoot and the sparkle in his eyes is terrific. The dark background enhances the portrait even more. The detail and the sharpness are remarkable. It is very well done.”
