Making Connections – Competition October 24th 2019

Our competition on Thursday was all about Connections and the Set Subject was embraced by entrants, accounting for 60% of entries.

Several new members entered successfully with images among the top scores – well done  Paul Hughes and Vicki Kramer!

Our judge, Robert Dettman, deliberated over every image, making a genuine effort to see the image from the photographer’s perspective and trying to understand the story they were attempting to convey.  He seemed to like our work, leaning toward high end scores, but also carefully explaining how he felt images could be improved, particularly in technical aspects and composition.

The type of connections ranged from strong emotional images involving people and/or animals to physical/mechanical connections such as chains, links, locks, machinery and Huw Rosser’s clever image Connection, Old and New which combined the physical, invisible and metaphorical and clearly took a lot of thought to create.

 

In the Open category James cleaned up with a record average score of 9.58 across a full set of 12 entries! (Yes,  all 10’s or 9’s!)  His images demonstrate remarkable versatility and creativity.

Come back in a few days for an update on this post, with more great images and to check out all of our Top Prints and Top Projected Images.
