At Sams: by Rob Norman
For me this image evokes a sense of history of the southern lakes region. It reminds me of Chinatown by Arrowtown. The composition uses the triangular shape of the stone hut to catch my attention and hold it. The clarity of the foliage in the background and the placement of the support pole in the centre overlying the door I found to be distracting. Perhaps a few paces to the right and a shallower depth of field could have reduced these distractions.
