Pseu’s ‘Detail’ photo competition, results, November 16th 2014

The photo competition, which asked for ‘photos which focusses on some detail we may usually overlook’ had an encouraging number of entries, considering how quiet it is currently around these parts.

Ara’s delicate silhouetted tree was the first entry, and a striking one at that, with blue sky and pink tinged clouds in the background, plus the chance to see the flowers and the green of the leaves faintly against the house.

Ara's tree(Personally I feel the strength of the image may have been improved by cropping to keep just the silhouetted image, loosing the house.)

FEEG’s harmonica showed the indented numbers on a harmonica, which I must say I hadn’t ever noticed before… how interesting.

HohnerSoutie’s bus notice reveals something about South Africa so succinctly…. and in this case we also had the bigger picture for contrast. We had the not unusual image of a bus waiting to collect passengers, with the very unusual message pinned to the window. bus-2His second entry focusses on the written word as well, with a snapshot of planned rugby matches…

Janus entered three images, small and large! The first, I think of a buddleia in bloom, followed by images taken in a wooded area. The third image, to my mind fitted the requirements of the competition best, showing how some leaves are translucent and others reflect the light. Again I feel the image could have benefited to focus in on this detail and could have been cropped with good effect. The light through the trees was also rather lovely, and cropping could have included or excluded that effect..

So Jazz, you are the winner for sixpence!

    Well done Jazz

    By the way, my second entry was not “a snapshot of planned rugby matches” but a picture showing at least 2 ridiculous spelling errors on a planned TV schedule detailing upcoming football matches. 🙂

    Well done, Jazz.

    Yes, I agree with you about the crop, I tried it and it looks much better, Nym.
