Landscape/Seascape Competition June 9th
The set subject proved very popular this month, with only two Colour prints entered in the Open section and 24 in Landscape/Seascape and twice as many Set Subject entries as Open in Projected Images. There were some very atmospheric images like James Allan’s Bwindi Mountains and Chris Schultz’s Dusty Sunset.
Sam Savage showed us why New Zealand is called the Land of the Long White Cloud.
And Anthony Kernich avoided cliches with a beautiful panorama of the Three Sisters in the rain.
We welcomed Alberto Giurelli back as our judge (thanks for stepping in at the last minute Alberto!) He entertained us with his stories as he considered each image and tried to see the photographer ‘s intention and view the images with an artistic eye.
It was fantastic to see new member and first-time competitor Bron Williams among the top scores with two of her images.
We didn’t get a triptych but James came up with a quadtych of the Maasai Mara with images taken from a hot air balloon – rather a different take on the landscape theme.
