The winner for this week's Reader SunShots series, "Spring Has Sprung," goes to Tim Shelton for his picture titled "Welcome Rain." The photographer took this picture with a Canon EOS Rebel with a 18-55mm lens. Shelton was experimenting with depth of field and other settings on his camera as he looked for pictures. Here is a critique by Baltimore Sun director of photography Robert Hamilton: "Photography is a constant learning process, and the best lessons are often obtained through experimentation. This photographer was able to produce a very nice picture that captured the feeling of spring while expanding his photographic knowledge."
