The Reader's Lens, 2014

Photographer: Aaron Roche, Seattle

Photo taken: Dec. 1, Jefferson Park, Seattle

Photographer's description: “Silhouetted skateboarders atop Beacon Hill stole the beauty of this sunset. Shot with a Sony ILCE-6000 Hybrid camera with a 16-50mm Power Zoom lens.”

Expert says: “The photographer did a great job silhouetting this skateboarder while capturing the peak action. I love the rest of the silhouettes in the background of the people and lamp post — it gives the photo a sense of place. The colors are beautiful and the wisp of clouds, especially in the top half of the photo, nicely fill out the frame’s dead space. This very well-timed moment makes this photo clean and a winner in my book.”
