Goshawk Bathing, by Chris Brain 1100 x 1500 pixels, Photography


From the artist, "Exploring the wonder of colour presented by the spray from the subject bathing, together with the bokeh from the sun on distant foliage."


This gorgeous groshawk is in command of both air and water here. It's a perfect moment of action and alertness. The eye piercing through the water gives focus in the midst of all that motion. It's a bold balance of detailed feathers and blurred water. The interplay of light throughout creates varied rhythms that keep the viewer engaged.

OVERALL RUNNER UP


A Tapestry of Lionesses, Carlotta Grenier, photograph of a pride of lions looking out from the branches of a tree

A Tapestry of Lionesses, by Carlotta Grenier 20 x 40 inches, Photography

From the artist, "Lions in a yellow bark tree in Tanzania."


This spectacular image is a series of stories in one. Each lioness is a different phase of a similar mood and purpose. The gaze of the lioness in the center, top, draws this photograph into a compelling whole. Excellently composed, lovely crispness.

ARTIVISM AWARD


Walk through the Valley, photograph of lions and a gazelle in stark black and white.
Andrew Strom

Walk Through The Valley, by Andrew Strom 20 x 40 inches (Additional sizes available), Photography (Canon EOS R5)


From the artist, "This early morning shot, taken in Amboseli National Park in Kenya, shows a pride of lions walking and framing an impala silhouetted against the morning light. Shown in stark black and white makes quite the statement piece showcasing the balance between life and death."


This is a bold artistic choice, and we value boldness here at Wild Heart Gallery. The message is clear in the photograph, even with minimal visual information. On top of that, each animal in this piece is an individual, separate from the others and yet part of the whole image. It's stark and yet intensely interesting.
