---- — Name: Sarah Rydgren

Hometown: Danvers

Description: “This is at Eastern Point in Gloucester at sunset. A couple walked back along the breakwater, and I caught them against the Boston skyline in the distance as the sun lit the sky pink.

“I am inspired by New England and the beauty that surrounds me.”

Camera info: D90, manual mode, 100 mm

PHOTO STAFF CRITIQUE

“A very dramatic photo in composition and color. Like a sandwich, large, dominant horizontal bars at the top and bottom exert pressure, squeezing all the details into the thin middle area.

“Great placement of the two figures against the Boston skyline in the thin sliver of an opening. That area opens just enough on the left side to allow the figures to escape the clouds that are closing in.”
