They came in Threes
Christine Hodgson was welcomed by members and guests to Zoom for the judging of the Annual Triptych competition. If judging one entry seems hard imagine trying to judge three presented as a single image.
There were 37 entries and Christine had the task of providing feedback and picking her winners. A Triptych is like a mini-panel so it is important that the three images work together to create a cohesive story. Many of the images did this really well but Christine provided some constructive comments where she thought there was the room for improvement. A number of images might have benefited from a crop here or there, or perhaps one of the images might have been better flipped horizontally. We naturally read left to right so this can be an important part of resenting a Triptych. Colour balance between the images can play an important part as can the focal point that draws the eye.
Ian McMillen took the top slot with his image Time-Line, closely followed by Sally Sallett with her Cheery Cherries with Paul Wagstaff’s Water drops on Dandelion Seeds taking third place. Michelle Howell took the Highly Commended slot with On Reflection, with Peter Wells and David Kershaw taking the two commended positions for Cheeky Charlies and Oh for a Tea bag.
