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."
