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.
