Congratulations to Franz Rabe of Pretoria, South Africa who the jury has voted PFRE Photographer of the Month for August. This is Franz's first win!
Here are the entries that the jurors awarded points to this month:
Here is Franz's description of his winning photo:
I must really thank them birds, they really made a big impact on the photo and on some of the judges!
It was just one of those exceptional days, where one just had to stand in the right place and press the button. Normally I would prefer a cloudy, dramatic sky, but here the blue sky worked perfectly with the water reflection and perfectly wind-still day, with afternoon sunlight more golden and softer than normal. The house and landscaping were immaculate and of course, my feathered friends were flying in the sky.
This is a special honor for me. There are some mighty fine photographers gathered here. Thanks a mil to the judges, and for your constructive comments.
This is a special website. Since I'm based in South Africa, it’s super to rub shoulders and ideas with real estate photographers from all over the world!
One house keeping detail that I discovered this month with the new rule where all jurors comment more on the photos. In the future, comments from the entrants must not be made before the winner is announced because a comment from an entrant reveals the entrant's name. I can delete the name of entrants from comments as I did this month but I can't do it fast enough to assure that entrants remain anonymous.
