Photo: Still life bottle
Location: Cape Town, South Africa
"The shape of the bottle, reflected backdrop in focus and blurred background with sweet sunset colours are the key points to this successful still life photo." - Yana
"This photo is absolutely divine. The photographer combines the element of still life photography with landscape photography. The reflection of the majestic landscape, during sunset, in the bottle symbolises the importance of minute objects used to paint a story that stands out. Incredible colour contrast and apt use of aperture!" - Rumaisa
