The Colour Black – Competition June 4th 2020

This was our second online competition, this time using Zoom which was well-accepted by all participants.  Our judge, Peter Barrien from Adelaide Camera Club, was very comfortable with the format and gave serious consideration to, and thoughtful comments on, every image.  There were 63 images, evenly divided between Set Subject – The Colour Black – and Open.  While it was apparent that there was some variation in interpretation of the definition it was good to see the range of styles.

In Set Subject Peter was most impressed by James’ Bella and Suzie’s Reynisfjaara.

In Open the following images gained a 10.  James Allan’s Sheep made a real impression on Facebook with several comments about the sheep appearing powerful or menacing – unusual attributes for sheep.

Meredith’s Drought -stricken took the judge by surprise but was very popular in post competition discussion.  I’ve never seen sand look so much like trees!

And my Editor’s Choice is this beautiful Pink Robin (who knew they existed?) by Suzie Smith.  The wispy moss complements the exquisite little bird and the knotty bough balances him perfectly.

It was great to see a good number of members entering this month’s competition and good to know that going online has not dampened our enthusiasm!  Our next competition is Letters and Numbers so it’s time to start thinking outside the box and looking at things around us in an innovative way!  Keep enjoying your photography whether you’re home or starting to venture out and about!
