Terry’s selection and comments
1st Galleria Vittoria – Nigel Hazel
Good graphic look to the picture, plenty of detail, all recorded well, nicely exposed throughout and pin sharp.
2nd Strawberry – Dianne Pitchford
Good contrast of the red against the black, good refection. Strawberry nicely positioned. Good focused reflection.
3rd Ripon Cathedral – Phil Gledhill
Lots of good detail in the glass, sharp with all the horizontals being good. Statues in front of glass are soft on focus. if these were sharper and if the top of the windows had been included in the frame, the picture would have been pushing for top spot.
Commended – 43567 – Trevor Bottomley
Well seen and nicely framed. Let down by the reflections in the window on the left.
Commended – Tulips – Sarah Bindon
Nicely laid out and framed, good detail, texture to heavy across the flowers and stems.
