Things Come in Threes – April 27th Triptych Competition

Members embraced the Set Subject and challenged themselves to try something new with some brilliant results in our Triptych competition on Thursday night.  Judge Susie Lipert took a gentle approach, clearly putting herself in the place of the photographer while she gave constructive comments, talked about what did and didn’t work and gave helpful hints on how images could have been improved.  Her comments were broad ranging – very specific to the image and I think her efforts were appreciated by all.

There was a really interesting range of subjects and some people had clearly taken photographs specifically for triptychs.

Eric was very creative…..

Eric Budworth – Life Span

James thought outside the square…..

James Allan – Cogs

Tariq showed off  beautiful details…..

Tasriq Mohammad Abdul – Place of Worship

and Helen still couldn’t resist focusing on furry animals!

And in Open, James captured a Variable Sunbird in all its shimmering glory!

To see more images from the night visit the Top Prints and Top Projected Images which includes a number of extra Editor’s Choices.

Hopefully this Set Subject may have opened minds to the use of triptychs in other competitions as a triptych is great for storytelling and can be used very creatively.  It may not be the best mode for our next competition, but then again, maybe you will prove me wrong by entering a fantastic landscape triptych!
