DAVID BOWIE - GOLDEN NUGGETS

Judges comments:

From the near hillside the viewer Is led down to the lighthouse and out to the rocks. Lovely composition with a mystical sense enhanced by the scale the building gives the powerful landscape.

JASON RETTER - REFLECTION PERFECTION

Judges comments:

The long exposure beautifully softening the sea and sky really emphasizes the hard quality of the old pier. The juxtaposition of cool and warm colour is played perfectly in this stunning image.

LEON SUN - HAVE A SEAT IN THE FOYER.

Judges comments:

Clearly a staking image! Excuse the pun. The cityscape Is given a great sense of scale by both the lightening and the foreground building. Great capture.

ANDY TROWBRIDGE - KINGFISHER AND CRAB

Judges comments:

Andy’s image stood out due to Ills excellent technical qualities. It’s beautifully sharp, nicely lit with a clean PRIZE. background and also demonstrates an interesting feeding habit perfectly. Hard to ask much more from a wildlife image shot in the field, these take some work to get!

LIAM CUNNINGHAM - CHEEKY GANNET

Judges comments:

I love ham’s pic, so very different and unusual. Sharp in the right place, the eyes, and has a comical PRIZE. Disney-like quality to it. Having spent some time at the colony in Muriwal I can appreciate how out of the norm this shot is.

GEORGIA HENDRY - SHEEP

A beautiful iconic New Zealand image that I could see being picked up by many publishers. Stunning light PRIZE. and great composition work well and having the attention of all the sheep just completes the picture! Wish I had taken it.

With few compositional elements and a simple colour palette this photographer has managed to produce a moody and evocative image that leaves space for the viewers contemplation. Well seen and beautifully executed. The colour supports the strength in this image.

MIKKO XIANG WANG - HAPPYTIME.

Judges comments:

Content of this nature can be a trap for photographers.It can make it seem all too easy, usually resulting In over-reliance on subject matter with little attention to composition. However, this photographer has successfully negotiated the potential pitfalls and delivered a coherent well composed image speaking of atmosphere, time and place.

A unique and resonant portrayal of a common theme. Intimate, honest, simple and direct.

ABSTRACT / CONTEMPORARY Judge -

YOANN FEILLET - DROP

Judges comments:

This is a very powerful abstract with a perception of stillness, but the slight raising of the blue area evokes a sense of apprehension with a sense that something is about to happen. The colour supports the strength in this image.

EU LEE TEH - CROSSING LINES

Simple but so effective conveying the changing of direction in life. Its an unsettling feeling choosing direction and it may be the wrong route!

GRACE SHARP - LOOKING UP
