The Judges of the Cafe Choice Award are pleased to announce the sixth presentation of this highly rated award:









is awarded to member



Kevin McNeal

for his image

"Pathway to the Peaks"









Purely coincidental in its timing with winning Photo Of The Week, this is an image truly deserving of both awards.

The photographer, although new to the Photography Cafe, is obviously not new to photography.  The technical difficulties of this shot, its basic mastering of exposure, composition and picture taking is thorough.  The classic sweeping "S bend" running through the image guides the viewer through that wonderful mountain vista either in or out of the scene of incredible depth.

The snow retains its whiteness and crispness in and on the trees, smoothly changing to the cold blue of the shadows which could easily have dominated the scene to its detriment.  Most photographers would probably have concentrated the image on the distant mountain view, however Kevin has masterly included the long sweeping, and mostly featureless foreground, the whole combining to produce an image of incredible depth and beauty.

Congratulations on receiving the sixth Photography Choice Award.

Congratulations Kevin, from the Judges.!

I'd like to give it another award - 'Picture Of The Year', because I can't foresee anything better getting posted.
