Patriotic winner

Patriotic winner

Steve Bruza is the winner of this week's Sunshots theme "Patriotic" with his photo of the Charlestown retirement community's Memorial Day display of 1000 American flags. He used a Nikon D700 and a 28-300 zoom lens at f14 to create the image. "I struggled to capture the awesome display with my camera until I got down low on the grass to change my perspective looking up from a bug's eye view," Bruza says. "A perfect gentle breeze and ideal weather did the rest." Sun photo editor Jerry Jackson comments, "I like that the photographer explored perspectives until he got the shot he liked. The low angle helped hide the background clutter making a clean, dynamic image."
