Architecture – Competition January 27th 2022
In a good start for Set Subjects in 2022, Architecture accounted for 75% of entries – a popular choice!
We changed a couple of sections this year, dropping Album prints and dividing Projected Images into separate Colour and Monochrome sections.
Judge, David Rowlands, provided thoughtful comments on each image. In Architecture he particularly looked for a different perspective and ways in which the photographer made the “art” their own.
The high scores were well spread with Di Gage doing particularly well from photographing Port Adelaide with Old Port Woolsheds, Old Port Woolsheds 2 and Woolsheds as well as The Cloisters, Iona Abbey.
Judy Sara’s Windows and Different Structures impressed David with their simplicity and clean lines, as did Steve Wallace’s Old against New.
The more classic Pont d’Avignon and Maison Carée by Gordon Lindqvist, along with Heather Connolly’s Big end of Town, Judy Sara’s Palm House and Geometric and Sheila Gatehouse’s Building up to the Sky, You Can’t Hide your Best Angle and Hart’s Mill rounded out the Set Subject High scores.
In the smaller Open sections the most successful photographs were Judy Sara’s Ladybird on Duty, Helen Whitford’s Post Coital Screech, Ray Goulter’s Tree Skeletons and Balmy Afternoon and Meredith Retallack’s Orange Spider Wasp.
