Yellow to dominate competition – 26-May-2011
Talk about Mellow Yellow. We had an interesting and quite varied collection of yellow images in all categories with 105 entries in all, including 1 monochrome effort in the set subject – good thinking there!
Our judge Trevor Bower gave us useful comments on our efforts and used a pretty full range of scores in judging those efforts. Trevor also remarked that the set subject images all fell well in category.
A few useful comments to note were:
- that when doing macro or close up work good detail is required across the whole image
- backlighting can be useful in close up
- when photographing limited colour images take advantage of patterns and try to break them up
Once again, Jo Tabe set the standard in the Set competition prints with a clever use of a garden hose on a window – well done Jo (I’ve posted the image above)! It was good to see the other club members trying to follow Jo’s lead – and many are not far behind!
Please have a look at the images in the Digital Entries page – as well as the Editor’s Choice 😆
