I’ve updated the photos in the contest Flickr group to show all the entrants names.
Here are Brian’s comments on his photo:
Thank you so much, Larry, and to all the judges. I am so honored to have won this months contest. I stumbled upon this site about 5 years ago when I was trying to figure out what kind of camera to buy so I could shoot my mother’s listings for her. I thought all I needed was an expensive camera and my photos would look amazing (haha, boy was I wrong). I have learned so much from your site and this community through the years that is has literally changed my life.
This bathroom was taken on a very cold, stormy winter day, and the light was just beautiful at the time of the shoot. This was a single exposure with all the natural light streaming in from the window above the tub. Post was pretty simple with a little dodging and burning here and there for some added dimension. I also added the fun zebra print to the big blank wall space to balance out the shot. Shot with Nikon D750 1/4 at F7.1 ISO 250
