February Theme 2021 Judged by Chris


Winner

Spring KIng Cups – OLIVER

For me this is the stand out image with so much going for it. It is taken from a low perspective so that you almost feel that you are lying amongst the flowers.  The lighting is perfect with the petals and hairs on the flowers being backlit, and to add that final touch the sepals are shown as shadows. It is a feel good image that brings joy to the beholder.

Runner Up

Door & Melon – Tillman

From the moment I saw this image I was fascinated by it. It is absolutely packed with texture, and such a beautifully muted colour palette and then the yellow pops out at you. The melon is a small part of this image, however it is the first thing that grabs your attention every time.

Runner Up

Give Us A Hug – Gordon

 A very close contest, but without fail everyone in the group was amused by this image. We all want a hug and the feel good factor just now and this image really delivers. Just goes to prove that photography is fun.

Who’s Playing Who by Colin

It takes me to a time when I played rugby is similar conditions – it was great fun, the camaraderie of the various teams I played for was excellent and made it all the more enjoyable – though I always hated the communal bath afterwards where you came out dirtier than when you went in!! The image is also relevant to now where we are battling against opposition that is difficult to see and control.


WINNER. COLIN

Sheep – the riot of colour and multiple faces really puts a smile on my face, the added bonus is having been on farms with our horses all my adult life I can smell and hear them. It also asks – why and what do the colours mean, where are they going?

Runner Up TILLMAN

Beach Stone Abstract – I am drawn to the textures the image portrays, so many shapes and patterns – it could also be of wood or an ancient cave painting, its a delight to look over the image – would love to see the print. Being a Geologist (by qualification) I can feel the coarseness of the stone and find the image invokes fond memories of field trips to numerous geological sites around the UK when I was studying.

Runner Up DIANNE

The Torso – takes me to all of those ancient sites in Turkey and Greece we have visited and enjoyed on numerous holidays– the treatment is excellent and complimentary. I am also reminded of my younger days when I was fitter and more athletic (I know hard to believe!) happy days.
