Judges Writeup





We had a wide variety of photos posted for this competition with its theme of groups.  Many took the theme literally an posted people pics in groups but we were looking for originality and we got that with the shortlist, which range from animals to people to objects. We hope you agree the shortlist and winners are outstanding.

First prize:  Wacom Intuos4 L + Intuos4 Airbrush + 1 pair of tickets to Focus on Imaging
1st place goes to aftertherain for her awesome capture of huge flock of starlings creating cloud patterns in the sky. Slightly blurred birds make it more abstract and the placement of the trees on the horizon balance the composition.

Second prize: Wacom Intuos4 Wireless + 1 pair of tickets to Focus on Imaging
2nd place is taken by guitarman74uk with his photo of tourists from above. We like the high vantage point and the use of a slow shutter speed so it shows movement of many of the visitors while some remain motionless. The toning is also very good and suits the mood.

Third prize: Wacom Intuos4 M and + 1 pair of tickets to Focus on Imaging
3rd place is a group or band/artists...sepia toned with a dark vignette. The angle of the subject and processing give an accentuated feeling of bizarreness. Would love to hear what music was being played. Kind of weird David Lynch Twin Peaks feel to this.

Runners up: 12 pairs of tickets to Focus on Imaging so well done all.
