Lit from Behind – Competition August 1st 2019
We had a great turnout of both members and images on Thursday for our Lit from Behind competition, with roughly equal numbers of photos in our Set Subject and Open categories. It was great to see that Prints were strong, making up over 2/3 of entries.
Relatively new entrant Suzie Smith produced a beautiful study of light through trees with Misty Sunrise in McLaren Vale. Helen Whitford confused the judge, Geoff Smith, with Stuck Down but he liked it anyway. (Yes, it is a piece of down and it’s stuck.) Meredith Retallack’s Sailor’s Delight was the best received of the sunset images with lovely golden ripples in a panoramic format.
James Allan’s Cocky Alarm was a delightful study in light and birds, Di Gage’s Italian Chapel was a beautiful composition and Suzie Smith’s Umbrellas of Carcassonne was impressive.
In the Open section Meredith Retallack’s Leave Nothing but Footprints, Judy Sara’s Echidna, Helen Whitford’s Wipe Your Beak and James Allan’s Mateship were among the top scorers.
It was great to see entries from 17 of our members in this competition, with a wide range of subject matter and styles.
