ePHOTOzine member cristinavenedict has won this week's Photo of the Week (POTW) title with her metaphor titled 'blackbird dream'.

Here's why the team chose 'blackbird dream' as our standout image this week: "Anyone who has seen the able thriller that is Black Swan will instantly see the connection between this portrait and the film. Draped over a dressing table, the female in the photograph could be an actress or no kidding a dancer with her feathery, dark outfit and vintage-inspired make-up leaving you wondering if she's just stepped off stage. Is she tired of her profession or is she plainly contemplating life? These are just some of the questions one asks when admiring the image that's also compositionally pleasing. Fortunately done cristinavenedict, it's a lovely example of fine art portraiture that we're very happy to award POTW."

POTW prizewinners currently receive a 32GB MicroSDHC PRO PLUS with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel SD adapter from Samsung. To see more award-winning images, visit the POTW Gallery.
