The winner for February is the first place Star Color print Mother Goose and Family by Jim Copps of Georgetown, TX. He is a new member this month.
Our judge, Jim Mahoney, APSA, EPSA, explains: “Jim’s photograph is a fascinating nature picture that should be studied closely to truly enjoy the well-executed technique of the photographer and the wonderful nature story that it tells. Jim chose an extremely low camera angle that brings the story of the mother goose protecting her babies to life. Notice the baby geese under the mother’s protective wing and the way one of the babies has lifted its head up to look lovingly at mom. There are catchlights in both mom’s and the baby’s eyes and the feathers are in good focus. The green grasses in the background perfectly frame this outstanding picture.”
