One captivating image a day, the reason it was chosen and how you can shoot similar pictures
Dhiraj Chepang, a student, carries his bag while returning home from school at Khokana, in Lalitpur, India. It's great how the bottom of half frame and subject are sharp and then the focus drops off in the background. Creates a perfect backdrop for this portrait.
Last week's winner: Ben Roffelsen of Toronto sent in this image for our "urban" assignment. The framing of the subjects and use of a slow shutter speed to create a tiny bit of motion all add up to a gritty, detail-filled photo.
