Competition 5 - Macro and Open

Our judge for this competition was Dave Sumner. This is Dave's third time judging for our club and he enjoyed our images.

This round's set subject was Macro, defined as:

A form of close-up photography where the captured subject is presented at a ratio of 1:1 or greater. Typically a specialised Macro lens is used, though the result may also be achieved through the use of extension tubes, macro filters, and/or reverse mounting your lens. The aim is to show enhanced details in common subjects that we may otherwise not notice.

Competition 4 - Creative and Open

Our judge for this competition was our very own  Brett Ferguson - Brett has been a judge with the APJA for several years now and is usually busy judging for other clubs, so we're excited he could find some time to squeeze us in.

This round's set subject was Creative, defined as:

Creative or experimental photographs display a novel effect because of an unusual combination of objects and /or unusual viewpoint. Photographs in which the images have been modified during or after exposure by using an experimental technique are also eligible in Creative/Experimental sections. The photograph must always have a basic photographic image. Digital manipulation processes may be employed provided the original photograph was exposed by the entrant.

Judges volunteer their time and judging a competition can take a lot of time, so we're very fortunate to have people who are willing to spend their time to provide us feedback on our images.

Competition 6 - People Portraits & Open

As we round out our year of isolation we also come to the last round of competition for the year. In this competition the images were about people. Set before the pandemic hit and long before we were all locked away in our homes, I'm sure finding images for this competition was a challenge for all; which is no doubt why we saw a reduction in our usual numbers of entries.

We are grateful to our members who have stuck with us throughout the past six rounds of competition, particularly those since we had to remove prints from contention due to social distancing rules. I remain ever-impressed with the work from our members and love that you continue to share it with us all.

Our judge for the evening was Rob Sloane. He was not present for the reading of his comments, we are grateful for his time in reviewing our images and providing his feedback.

Our judge, Paul Robinson sent us written commentary ahead of time and Paul's words were delivered by Tania. Paul was a very generous judge, offering extensive critique and citing relevant references for other photographers our makers may choose to investigate.

The judging for our 3rd competition "Open" & "Blue" was held via Zoom. Our judge, Adrian Smith, provided comments that Tania, our Competition Steward, read while we displayed the images. Note, only digital images are being judged due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

If you missed the Zoom meeting, you also missed our discussion as a group where we talked about some of the images that stood out or those we thought maybe had been misinterpreted by the judge. We've kind of agreed that we might like to do this going forward.
