Earth, Wind, Fire & Water – Competition May 9th
Well we kinda sorta had a competition! As our scheduled judge had unfortunately fallen by the wayside our Vice President, Mark Pedlar, withdrew his images and stood in to give commentary and scores but, in fairness to all, the competition was voided and will not be included in Aggregate scores.
Members again supported the set subject well, with around half of entries each in Set and Open categories.
Judy Sara captured earth and fire in her excellent composition of Mining Sulphur. Meredith Retallack captured reflections in Still Water and Bev Langley caught the fire in the sky and the rage of the water in Tempest.
Heather Connolly captured earth and water in her simplistic Receding Sea, Helen Whitford caught a watery illusion with Running Man and Bev Langley’s Sunset caught the foamy waves on the sand nicely.
In the Open category wildlife images featured strongly, as is often the case in our animal-friendly club, with James Allan’s Hobby, Gordon Linqvist’s Australasian Gannett and Welcome Swallow and Helen Whitford’s Contentment all showing well.
But it wasn’t all animals, Di Gage’s Cairngomes Hut was also impressive.
Thank you to Mark for stepping in to judge and provide feedback on our images!
Members please note that as this competition is not being included in Aggregate scores, all images are deemed to have been withdrawn and are therefore still eligible to be entered twice in regular competitions.
