Another Brick in the (Barn) Wall

April’s competition theme proved to be a challenge to all but it was good to see that many members had a shot. It was also a difficult experience for the judge James Corbett who was unable to attend due to illness but had submitted his comments and placings which were read out at the meeting.

1st in Theme: Derelict Barn with Graffiti – Veronica Johnson-Roffey

The winning image, Derelict Barn with Graffiti by Veronica Johnson-Roffey, has, James said
….a strong composition with leading lines of the roof, guttering, door lintel and wall, across the picture from left to right. The tree branches then take your eye back to the graffiti. There are lovely colours that are echoed in the sky.

In second place was Francis de Clermont’s Run Out Of Bricks?, part barn brief and part wildlife shot. Unfortunately for the Group this image had not been forwarded to the display system but it had been amongst those sent to the judge. Francis also gained third place with his shot of Merry Tom Barn, a venue that a few members used in this competition.

In the Open Francis was the undisputed winner for the fourth consecutive month with a majestic image of a stag taken at Bradgate Park last autumn. James commented on the fact that this was a strong image with a balanced composition and a great combination of sharp focus and depth of field.

1st in Open: Parklife – Francis de Clermont

Anne Blaber gained second place with Tractors This Way, a very strong landscape image with compositional elements utilising the rule of thirds and good use of depth of field and angle of view. Third place went to Ron Wykes with Aiming For A Destination, one of his table-top images featuring a Lego character throwing map pins.
