Portrait winner

The winner for this week's Reader SunShots series "Portrait" goes to Rob Brulinski for his picture titled "Melissa, Bolton Hill apartment."  The photographer took the picture from a fire escape with a simple point-and-shoot camera. Here is a critique by Baltimore Sun director of photography Robert K. Hamilton: "When I thought of this category, my intention was to look for those photographers who had taken a less conventional approach to portraiture. I think this image is a great example of creative thinking. By shooting through the window the photographer gave the photograph an ethereal quality that separated it from the other pictures."

Red winner

The winner of this week's Reader SunShots theme "Red" is Marian Owens Clatterbaugh with her photo, "Cordelia in the Sun." "The little girl in the photo is Cordelia Justice," Clatterbaugh writes. "I used a Canon PowerShot S3 IS to take this candid shot in a hotel courtyard while waiting between shoots for an independent film. I was struck by how the sunlight spotlighted Cordelia's red hair and made for such a dramatic image." Photo editor Jerry Jackson comments, "With its chiaroscuro lighting, this photo could almost be mistaken for a painting. Proper exposure is key in such a high contrast situation. The camera did a great job holding detail in the white dress, even into the shadows.
