Wind Powered – Competition August 13th

A competition with a difference!  As our scheduled judge was reluctant to meet online we took the opportunity to try community judging on Thursday night.  James and Duart found a way to make it work and although only a dozen members joined in it was an interesting and empowering exercise for all.

Entry numbers were down but interestingly monochrome images were up, particularly in the Open section.¬† All of the entries were available for¬† preview on our members’ Facebook forum and indeed are still available fpr view and comment.

James Allan’s Southern Cross in Action was acclaimed as the image which best captured the power of the wind with real impact and Judy Sara’s The Old and the New made the biggest impression in Monochrome Set Subject.¬† There were quite a few windmill shots!

In Open, Helen Whitford’s Feather and David Hancock’s Happy Wash appealed to the majority of member judges.

It was an interesting experience having everyone participate in picking the best images and listening to the reasons why certain images held appeal for different people.  It was generally agreed that the results were probably similar to what they would have been with a single, experienced judge.

Here are all of the images.

The Top Images can be found here and members can visit our Facebook Forum to see what others had to say and to add your own comments.


Letters and Numbers – July 16th Competition

No, not the TV Show (although I did consider taking a photo of my galah watching the show on the TV.)  The Set Subject was quite well subscribed, providing more than half of the entries.

There was a variety of interpretations including a couple of obscure  entries from James Allan and Helen Whitford.  (When collating the images I googled Ascii 1 to check that it was what I thought it was!)  Our judge, Robert Dettman, was impressed with both the creativity and technical skill in Splash of Lemon.  I knew I was taking a risk with an image about numbers which actually showed no numbers!

Sheila Gatehouse impressed with Welcoming and Heart of the Festival State.

Although our numbers were down a little, both in terms of images and participants in the meeting, it was a great night.  Robert gave thoughtful comments on every image and we thank him for his efforts!

Below are all of the entries and the Top images can be found here.

 

 


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 РThe Colour Black Рand 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!

Meredith Retallack-Drought Stricken

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!


Social Documentary Competition April 23rd 2020

Well this is our first competition amid COVID 19 restrictions but I’m pleased to say that we had around the same number of entrants as in the previous two competitions!

Our competition structure has been completely revised as we obviously cannot hold a print section.  Aggregates for the normal sections have been abandoned and tonight we begin special new aggregates for 2020 only.  Members can now enter three colour images and three Monochrome images, spread across Set Subject and Open in the usual way.

The Set Subject is Social Documentary, defined for this competition as “A Social Documentary Image can be described as one that captures the brutal reality of life around us.¬† Closely aligned to Street Photography, SD is more ‘edgy’ or ‘gritty’, generally showing pathos.¬† See how you interpret this subject.”

Below are all entries in the order of judging.

Heartfelt thanks to David CG Smith who has kindly learned new technology and got out of his comfort zone to try live judging on Facebook for us!  Your efforts are really appreciated David! Unfortunately technology got the better of us and David was unable to judge live but he was able to give scores and write comments which Helen was able to read out live so we were half way there!

There was a pretty good turn out to watch the live feed.  For any members who are in the Facebook forum group you can still watch the video and see and comment on all of the images.  It would be good to see more comments on images, just as you might have done after a live judging in the hall!

Congratulations to everyone who entered for being part of this brave new world!  Well done to those who received top scores!

All of the Top Images can be found here.

 


Amended Programme due to Covid 19

Attention Members:  there will be changes to our activities but we will attempt to have something happening online in which you can participate at or around the time of each scheduled meeting.

Details on how each of these activities will run will be emailed to all members shortly.

Peer Review/Critique Sessions will happen using our group pages in Flickr and/or Facebook, starting on April 9th.

Competitions will still be held on the scheduled nights and have the Set Subject as per the programme although the format will be different.¬† Start preparing to enter up to three Colour Digital entries and up to three Monochrome Digital entries (in the usual digital format) for the “Social Documentary” competition on April 23rd.¬† They can be split between Set Subject and Open in the usual way.¬† Competition entry instructions will be emailed to all members.

We will make new plans for other meetings when guest speakers and workshops were scheduled.  If you have any suggestions or questions please contact Julie or Judy at blackwoodphotoclub@gmail.com

In the meantime, let’s view self isolation at home as an opportunity to sort out our disorganised photos or practise our still life, table top, creative, flower, insect, pet and portrait photography! (Self-portraits if you live alone!)

We may not be able to see each other but we can still support one another in these strange and daunting times!

 

 


Multiple Exposure – Competition March 12th

Following our inspiring and educational workshop on Multiple Exposure (thank you James, Judy and Ray) it was great to see the number of members venturing into this creative genre and exciting to see the variety of applications and techniques employed.¬† Although many of us had felt challenged by the idea of creating Multiple Exposure images, Set Subject entries significantly outnumbered Open category images and two thirds of entries were prints!¬† This trend sets BPC apart from many other clubs where prints are giving way to PDI’s (Projected Digital Images).

Here are some of the different interpretations of the subject.

Our judge, Keith Seidel, shared many useful tips and suggestions, carefully explaining the reasons for the scores he gave.  He appreciated storytelling, good composition and creativity when well executed.  The most common  flaws he noted were distracting elements such as bright patches or lines leading the eye away from the subject or out of the frame. It was encouraging to see the awards were spread among 10 of the 17 members who entered the competition.

Come back in a few days to see more of the Top Prints and you can find the Top PDI’s here.


Transport – Competition January 30th 2020

We were transported to a new era with some relatively new members flashing past the old guard in our Transport competition.¬† With 100 entries we made a great start to the year and I’m pleased to see that we are one club in which Prints are thriving, comprising¬† 60% of entries in this competition.

Judy Sara was not outdone, with many stunning images among the tops including Air Warfare, Turning and Duke of Edinburgh. Paul Hughes, Wayne Carruthers and Vicki Kramer also impressed with Ready to Go, Tucker’s Schooner and Vibrant Vespa.

Di Gage made a cruise liner look small in Dwarfed, James Allan captured the splendour of a day on the water with Kayak, Eric Budworth made the mundane spectacular in Any Seat and Suzie Smith captured beautiful symmetry and detail in Moskova.

Our judge, David Rowlands, gave carefully considered comments on all images, providing many hints and tips along the way.  Thanks David!

Bruce Nankivell demonstrated his talent for beautiful landscapes in the Open section of PDIs with Out There and Open Spaces.

Come back in a few days for more Top Prints!  And find all of the Top Projected Images here.

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 Рwell 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.

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.

Want more?  Go to Top Prints.  The Top Projected Digital Images can be found here.

Our next competition is “Connections.”¬† Tune in again after October 24th.

 


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.

For fuller coverage of the night come back in a few days to check out more of the images and visit the Top Prints and Top Projected Images pages.


A Sense of Movement – Competition June 20th 2019

The challenge was to capture a sense of movement and members embraced the set subject with enthusiasm with around two thirds of entries in the set category.

James Allan selected slow movement with star trails, Helen Whitford selected rapid movement with a shaking otter and Bev Langley took the middle ground with a waterfall.

We had a flock of moving bird photos including Judy Sara’s Gull Bathing, Glenn Langley’s Scoop and James Allan’s Swallow

 

Some Open subject photos which caught judge John Hodgson’s eye included Gordon Linqvist’s Argyle Sunset, Don McLeod’s Bicycle in Italy and Judy Sara’s The Farmer and his Cheese.

For more images from the night visit our Top Prints and Top Projected images pages!


Earth, Wind, Fire & Water – Competition May 9th

Well we kinda sorta had a competition!  As our scheduled judge had unfortunately fallen by the wayside our Vice President, Mark Pedlar, withdrew his images and stood in to give commentary and scores but, in fairness to all, the competition was voided and will not be included in Aggregate scores.

Members again supported the set subject well, with around half of entries each in Set and Open categories.

Judy Sara captured earth and fire in her excellent composition of Mining Sulphur.  Meredith Retallack captured reflections in Still Water and Bev Langley caught the fire in the sky and the rage of the water in Tempest.

 

 

Heather Connolly captured earth and water in her simplistic Receding Sea, Helen Whitford caught a watery illusion with Running Man and Bev Langley’s Sunset caught the foamy waves on the sand nicely.

In the Open category wildlife images featured strongly, as is often the case in our animal-friendly club, with James Allan’s Hobby, Gordon Linqvist’s Australasian Gannett and Welcome Swallow and Helen Whitford’s Contentment all showing well.

But it wasn’t all animals, Di Gage’s Cairngomes Hut was also impressive.

Cairngomes Hut – Di Gage

Some of the top print entries can be found here! and the top projected digital images can be found here.

Thank you to Mark for stepping in to judge and provide feedback on our images!

Members please note that as this competition is not being included in Aggregate scores, all images are deemed to have been withdrawn and are therefore still eligible to be entered twice in regular competitions.


Coming out of the “Shadows” – Competition March 28th

There was a great standard of images presented in our “Shadows”competition on Thursday night.¬† We were very appreciative of the constructive feedback from our judge, David Rowlands, who particularly encouraged creativity and “fine art” photography.¬† James Allan’s Escher impressed, Jenny Pedlar’s Dog Shadow was simple but striking and Mark Pedlar’s Boots was another with a creative twist.

Judy Sara found Wildebeest on the city streets and Don McLeod found apples tempting but out of reach.

Di Gage found intriguing multi-toned shadows in the cloisters, Heather Connolly’s simple piece of seaweed threw up an interesting twisted shadow and Kerry Malec’s minimalist pylon image demonstrated how shadows can actually enhance detail.

There were some great images in the Open category with Bev Langley’s Tempest, Jenny Pedlar’s Looking for a Wave and Steve Wallace’s Stack of Yellow making¬† an impression.

It wouldn’t be a BPC competition without a few animal images.¬† New member Trent Riddle captured a great giraffe portrait (coming soon), Helen Whitford caught a gull catching a crab and Judy Sara got up close and personal with a beautiful kite.

Come back soon to check out more images from the night and you can find all of the top images at Top Prints and Top Projected Digital Images.

 

 


We’re off and running with a static set subject – Architecture Feb 14th Competition

What a fantastic start to our competition year with 22 people entering images, including several new members!

We embraced the set subject of Architecture  with more than 60% of entries in this category and a total of 93 images for the night.

Our outing to the North Terrace medical and entertainment precinct yielded a number of images and it was great to see many different interpretations of the same buildings.

Of course there was some international flavour with James Allan capturing contemporary architecture in Seville beautifully and Judy Sara taking us to the amazing Singapore Garden.

Regular judge Peter Phillips gave useful feedback on each image, stressing the importance of good lighting to enhance composition and keeping us entertained with his bad jokes!  He provided many helpful hints on technique both during capture and in post processing.

There was a wide variety of styles ranging from Jenny Pedlar’s abstract NGV to David Hope’s more traditional Inspiring and from Don McLeod’s high-key Tokyo Roof Skeleton¬†to Judy Sara’s low-key Car Park at Night.

For more images from the night visit our Top Prints and Top Projected Digital Images pages.

Thinking Inside the Square – August 2nd Competition

 

Our Set Subject for August 2nd was “Square Crop.”¬† It didn’t matter what the subject of the image was, as long as it suited the square aspect ratio.¬† A number of members came to the party with some creative use of the format. Ray Goulter’s “Alignment”, James Allan’s “Loch Luna”, Howard Seaman’s “Fine Dining”” and Helen Whitford’s “Soursobs” and “Cutie Pie” were all noted by judge, David Rowlands, as suiting the square crop particularly well.

David provided very fair, well rounded comments, elaborating on what he liked and where he could see opportunities to improve the image.  I think we all appreciated the fact that he gave every image his full attention.

The Open category attracted some strong images too, with Anthony Kernich’s “Duomo” impressing, and Helen Whitford’s “Hello Sunshine” having impact.¬† James Allan’s “Pigs” and Mark Pedlar’s “Grey Ghosts on Pulteney” both showed a different perspective.

Entry numbers were low again and we’d really like to encourage everyone to participate in the competition, challenge yourselves and your fellow club-mates and take the opportunity to access feedback on your images from both the judge and other members.

Getting in Close – June 7th Competition

June’s competition saw us getting in close with Macro/Micro/Closeup as the set subject.¬† We took a fairly loose approach to the definition as not everyone has macro equipment.¬† The idea was simply to get in for close detail.¬† However image numbers were down significantly although there was a great turnout of members for a cold winter’s night!¬† We even welcomed a couple of new members!
Our judge, John Hodgson, provided thoughtful comments on each image, with lots of constructive tips.¬† It was great to see new member, Meredith Retallack, among the top images with “Dew Drops”.

Dew Drops – Meredith Retallack

And Judy Sara cleaned up in the Projected images Set Subject with three very different images.

Kerry, Eric and Howard provided some other interesting entries in the set subject.

There were some great images displayed in the Open category as well!
