The theme of this month’s photo competition was ‘The Colour Green’, which opened up a whole world of possibilities. Frogs, plants and insects were among the most popular subjects, but the winning photos were two other well-loved types: a still life and a landscape.
Inma Rodriguez won the Judges’ Vote – and a splendid Lowepro bag – with her shot of a dew-spattered spider’s web. The judges loved the way the drops of water capture a wider, more colourful scene than is obvious from the green background, and the way the depth of field drops off, so your eyes are drawn in to the sharper drops nearer to the centre of the frame.
Claire Willans’ beautifully-exposed image of the aurora borealis dancing above an Icelandic landscape was the crowd vote winner; there’s detail in every part, from the icy foreground to the starry sky.
