Bunbury Photo Walk 2014: Competition Winners
It was a tough job picking the winners in the Bunbury Photo Walk 2014 Competition. There was a real variety of images submitted – from streetscapes to detail abstracts to landscapes taken at sunset at Back Beach. However, a core group of submissions stood out because of their visual strength, technical competency and originality in subject and composition. So, without further ado, please join us in congratulating the winners!
1st Prize: Nicole Vivers
“This photo was taken of a black plastic crate outside of Wight and Emmet. I was walking past and it just grabbed my attention. I really like the patterns on this subject.”
Fantastic image, Nicole. Congratulations! Nicole wins a $100 voucher that can be put towards one of our full day or half day photography workshops.
2nd Prize: Missy Grant
“This lonely seagull seemed to be every bit interested in me as I was it.”
This is a simple, yet very evocative image. Well done Missy! Missy wins a copy of Scott Kelby’s great book Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It courtesy of Collins Booksellers Bunbury.
Merit award winners win a table tripod each, thanks to Bunbury Camera House.
I went on the Bunbury photo walk with an image very close to this in my mind. I wanted to combine both walking and photographing as part of my picture. So a still photo with the illusion of people walking past was the idea. Although only armed with a small idea of how to achieve this, I was determined to pull it off. So after a bit of playing around with different length exposures and walking speeds, I got this shot. It wasn’t exactly how I envisioned it but I am more than happy with it portraying what I set out to do. I do hope you enjoy this pic. SonyA65,with a Sony 50mm F1.8 prime lens Shot at f4 ISO100 3.2sec exposure with a Hoya Nd400 filter.
Image was captured on my Fuji Film XM1 1/350 f/6.4 ISO200 @ 16 mm. I really liked the reflections of the Target sign beams on the wall and how I thought I could get the colours out. Minor post processing in Photoshop with an overlay filter and some LAB contrast boost and sharpening.
Captured on Nikon D600, Nikkor 50mm ISO100 4s-f/5.6 OEV Hoya NDX 400 filter used. Love using the NDX filter to bring some creativity to water images. In this case capturing soft movement through the rocks.
