Adding a Touch of Colour to Life! – Competition September 26th 2019
The notion of Spot Colour was embraced by members, with more than half of entries falling in this category, excluding mono of course which was excluded from the Set Subject. (That didn’t stop James from entering an all-red image and a suggestion of yellow in mono.)
There was a great variety of interpretations and applications of Spot Colour, ranging from a minor single element to quite a large amount of selected colour in some scenes. It was clear that a lot of thought went into all of the images which were selected for this subject and the results were impressive.
Meredith used architectural detail to create interest, complemented by a bright but worn-looking sign. Mark drew attention to the beautiful light falling through the window on apples with his touch of colour and Helen brought attention to a lion’s very effective grooming tool.
Suzie kept quite a bit of colour to draw attention to the river in an otherwise blue image of Paris, Di made us really look at the bumblebee and Kerry used pattern effectively to show a rainbow bow tie in a pile of CDs.
Judge, Susie Lipert, made thoughtful comments, giving time to each image, and gave lots of useful suggestions although she may be more fond of a tight crop than many of our members. Thank you Susie!
We had a very strong contingent of nature and animal images again and in the Open category it was great to see Kim Brumfield’s Luv U Mum and Gordon Lindqvist’s Open Wide and Just Resting among the top scorers.
