Our March winner is Malie van der Vyfer from National Photographic Club who wins with "Juliette in Agony"

2017.03 1 Malie van der Vyver National Photographic Club Juliette in Agony

This photo was taken at the Nelson Mandela Stage at Joburg Theater during a full dress rehearsal of the ballet Romeo and Juliette. This is the scene when Romeo had to leave Juliette the morning after their wedding night. I liked the mood of the scene - it has so much emotion! The conversion of the image from colour to sepia contributed to the mood of loss and desperation.
