Photographer: Dawid Theron (Tulbagh, South-Africa) Registered Photographer
Dawid Theron has always been drawn to the way nature presents it’s own “works of art”. Although he can appreciate beautiful landscapes and sunsets, his focus is towards the smaller elements: a close-up of a flower or water running over rocks, creating works of art that would normally go unnoticed. Dawid’s love for capturing these type of images doesn’t end in a natural environment; he also has a passion for architecture and other man-made objects that may present it’s own beautiful elements in the form of interesting lines, shapes, textures and colors.

The definition of Fine Art Photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. In some sense he sees himself more as an artist, with his surroundings as a canvas and the camera as his tool to capture those pieces of art he finds worthwhile sharing.

Photo of the Day Award Category: Architecture Photography
Photograph Location: Verona | Italy

Photographer: Daniele Lembo (Rome, Italy) Registered Photographer
Daniele Lembo lives in Rome, Italy, the most beautiful and chaotic city of the world. His passion for photography has given him the opportunity to express his way of seeing things and has allowed him to show others his vision of the world. As a child, he saw his father take pictures with his camera and he thought that one day he too would have one of his own. He received his first camera as a gift and discovered a strong passion and talent for photography. Since that day he has done nothing but take photographs in his spare time.
Over the years Daniele has studied the theory of photography. He has applied what he has learned while developing his own expressive style. Obviously, when he thinks he has found his way, he notices that there is still so much more to discover.

Just after dropping off my eldest daughter at boarding school, I decided to take a gravel road back home and almost halfway, I saw this Duiker in the crop field next to the road. As I stopped and quickly grapped my camera, the Duiker looked at me, I took this one shot and then it turned around and ran away. I found myself to be very lucky to be at this spot at the right time. A Duiker is a small to medium-sized antelope native to Sub-Saharan Africa.

Ron te Burg is living in Nietap a smal village in Drenthe which is a Province in The Netherlands. Ron started with photography in 1991. From the beginning of his photo career he was fascinated by the beauty of the landscape. The beautiful lines and color of the landscape are a great inspiration for him. Especially the low light landscapes, the moments just before sunrise and after sunset are his favorite. He tries to reflect the feeling of that moment with good composition, intense color and light. The Dutch Landscape and the Dutch culture are his main subjects. Sometimes he travels to take pictures of the beautiful landscapes in other countries.
