For some it really was a “Transport of Delight”
The theme for the October round of the online competition was “Transport” and some members went the extra mile to provide us with images from far and wide. Not only was it “Trains and Boats and Planes” but two wheels, four wheels, lots of wheels and no wheels! Sally Sallett had the job of judging this month so here are here words of wisdom.
Well, you should all have been thinking ‘outside the box’ when you knew I was judging! There was a good entry this month, with a fair bit of variety.
First place goes to “London Bound” I really liked the low angle, motion blur & the vivid but not overdone colours. Left me wondering if the author ever got up from the platform!
2nd. “Best in Show” Classy mono conversion of a tight, dynamic shot. Plenty of detail & full range of tones.
3rd . “U-bahn” Underground this time, for a fisheye shot of another train! (I must be losing my grip!) Again it captures the speed of the passing train & I like the expressions of the slightly distorted passengers. All rather “Terry Donnelly” !
Running close behind …. “Light at the end of the M62” A different interpretation of the theme, which is always a breath of fresh air!
And “Victor is Grounded” Great symmetry & an impressively heavy sky, just a shame about the trailer on the left.
Well done to the winners & thanks to all those who took the time to enter.
Thanks Sally for the judging. So now you want to know who the winners were. Well, Commended went to Tim Jonas with “Light at the end of the M62” by and Angela Crutchley-Rhodes with “Victor is Grounded”. Third place went to Nigell Hazell with “U-Bahn” and in second place was Madison Bright with “Best in Show”. The overall winner, though, was John Upson with “London Bound”. Well done to all and you can see the images below. November’s subject is very appropriate given that the clocks have just gone back – “Low Light”. So get out there and send in your image.
