Great use of the vertical format and a strong graphic composition create this visually dynamic landscape by Lex Rudd. Colour and texture are also put to effective use here. The location is the Namib Desert in Namibia, and Lex used a Nikon D7200 D-SLR fitted with a Sigma 10-20mm wide-angle zoom.
A traditional slice of Australian rural life is beautifully captured by
Chris Carter with the B&W rendition adding to the atmosphere and making for an even more compelling picture (given we’re so accustomed to seeing droving photographs in colour. Chris has aptly titled his photograph ‘Moving The Mob’, and it was taken with a Sony A900 D-SLR fitted with a 24-70mm zoom lens.
