COMPETITION: Winner on the Night #3
Tuesday March 9, 2021
Week 10 – 31 Attendees
The Winner on the night competition was judged by Lloyd Moore from Watford Camera club. There were sixty-five images, thirty-five in the themed section titled Black and White, and thirty images in the Open section.
In the Black and White section which came first, a variety of images were praised for having good composition, showing detailed textures, clarity, and contrast. Some images struggled a little with the technical side of photography such as sharp focus, correct depth of field, and some needed something extra to give a wow factor.
As Lloyd explained it “turning story which records, into narrative which gives nuance.”
Images featured, gardens, garages, misty landscapes, winter icicles, flowers, a derelict barn, street shots, canal locks and some striking abstracts.
After giving a kind, fair and detailed critique of all images, nine images were held back.
Lloyd said that all nine were technically good, compositionally good and had good dynamic range.
