Dessert winner

The winner of this week's Reader SunShots theme "Dessert" is Artie Velez of Bel Air for his photo "Fruit Tart." The photo was made with an Olympus E-410, the lens at 98mm, exposure of 1/30th second at f/5.6 at 100 ISO. Velez utilized techniques he learned in a digital photography class at Harford Community College. Velez writes he "selected the Fruit Tart because of the colors and texture believing it would make a great picture." Photo editor Christopher T. Assaf critiques. "A moody photograph of food, the shallow depth of field makes the tart 'pop' from the scene. The out-of-focus fruit, correctly cropped from the top, and the reflection add depth and interest." sc-sunshots-fruit-tart-p1 Artie Velez/for the Baltimore Sun sc-sunshots-fruit-tart-p1 /Baltimore Sun staff #
