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.
