Clubman – Round 3

Clubman – Round 3

Nigel Plant, an experienced photographer and judge now based in Yorkshire, has the unenviable job of picking the best from the 67 images submitted for the third round of the Wakefield Camera Club Clubman competition for which there was no set subject.

We had images entered for just about every genre of photography you can imagine, but Nigel was able to provide each and every author with some great feedback about their image and why it did not quite make the top spots.

Nigel’s comments included suggestions to perhaps add an object to balance an image or to remove or crop areas to improve the overall composition. Composition and framing is also so important when capturing the image or during post-processing. Colour Balance was mentioned for a number of images, it is an important part of editing an image especially if backgrounds have been replaced, textures added or perhaps where there had been some selective editing. Nigel spotted a few images where the image editing had left some unwanted halos and of course if post-processing then it is so easy to reduce the unwanted highlights that can distract the viewer. One or two images were judged to have been over saturated, so it is important to be very careful with those editing sliders.

Nigel reported that the images were all of a very high standard so scoring was close but in the end he had to make a choice which you can see in the gallery below. You can contact Nigel or see some of the work on his website.
