8 December 2016 – Victory Cup (Digital Competition)

This week was a digital print competition, the Victory Cup (Digital).  The second of three digital competitions this season.

There were 76 images entered in total.
There was no theme, it was an open competition.
The judge for the evening was Raymond Bridges
Scores were out of 20.

The same rules applied, as per my previous posts on digital competitions, one of which can be found here.

So here are my 4 entries, with their scores and judges feedback:

1-2-3-segway-by-elisabeth-smith-3

 

1, 2, 3 Segway scored 16

Good sense of movement.  The panning could be sharper. The red of the other persons jacket pulls your eye away from the subject.

 

 

 

lois-by-elisabeth-smith-2

 

Lois Scored 14

The light needs to be cut down a bit.  The image looks flat, it needs more contrast.  The eyes are sharp which is good.

 

 

 

 

number-19-by-elisabeth-smith-1

 

Number 19 scored 20 2nd place 

Good panning.  No background issues.  An enjoyable image.  Well done!

 

 

subtropical-paradise-by-elisabeth-smith-4

 

Subtropical Paradise scored 14

The surrounding sky is very dark and there are no details in it.  The image needs to be lighter.

 

 

After the second round of the digital league I am joint 8th, lets hope the last round gets me up the rankings a bit.

Ray Bridges mentioned a photographer whilst giving critique to another image, Brian Beaney, so I checked his website out and his images have a graphics feeling to them.  One thing his images had was a consistent look and feel.
