Com­pe­ti­tion win­ners!

The theme was ‘Gar­dens’, and the en­tries were fan­tas­tic…

NPhoto - - Over To You… -

Most pho­tog­ra­phers en­joy pho­tograph­ing gar­dens, but it’s sur­pris­ingly tricky to take a pic­ture that con­veys ‘gar­dens’ as a theme. You can fo­cus in on one small part, but cap­tur­ing a sense of ‘gar­den’ as well as of ‘flower’ or ‘but­ter­fly’ is dif­fi­cult. Pull back too far to take a land­scape shot and the flow­ers and hu­man-scale el­e­ments that make a great gar­den are lost in a sea of green.

Rory McDon­ald, who won the Judges’ vote and a Lowe­pro bag this is­sue, took a photo that matched the theme ex­actly. More im­por­tantly, it’s beau­ti­fully com­posed, with noth­ing quite straight or par­al­lel, giv­ing what’s clearly a tech­ni­cally ex­cel­lent im­age a nat­u­ral feel. Like­wise Heather Allen’s shot looks peace­ful, but the com­po­si­tion and ex­po­sure show mas­tery.

If you’d like the chance of win­ning a bag or a bun­dle of cam­era guides, why not en­ter our lat­est com­pe­ti­tion on­line at www.pho­ This month the sub­ject is ‘The colour green’. Please note that we can’t guar­an­tee the ex­act style of bag each Judges’ Vote win­ner re­ceives, but we can prom­ise you it’ll be a good-qual­ity cam­era bag from Lowe­pro.
