‘AFTERNOON LIGHT’ BY DENISE FIELD

'AFTERNOON LIGHT' BY DENISE FIELD 12
CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

I love the natural light flooding onto the hearth and creating a natural spotlight on the vase of flowers. However, as well as having to try to meet the challenge of separating the roses from the flowers on the tiles panel of the fire surround, the photographer has had to contend with controlling the exposure. So good effort!

DAM GOOD PICTURE (ELAN VALLEY – WALES) BY DAVID FIELD

DAM GOOD PICTURE (ELAN VALLEY - WALES) BY DAVID FIELD 13
CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

I love the point of view in this composition and the energy depicted in the image. It never ceases to amaze me how a two-dimensional print can project such powerful scenes. Perhaps the sky, the bleached which clouds, compete too enthusiastically with the subject of this image: the engineering/architectural brilliance of man set against the raw power of nature.

‘I’M STUCK’ BY DAVID JELLIE

'I'M STUCK' BY DAVID JELLIE 14
CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

The strength of this image lies in its storytelling. Poor stranded dog. Did he/she ever get off? I do hope so. Difficult lighting conditions to contend with, so well done on producing such an engaging image!

‘CANDLES FOR THE WORLD’ BY CHRISTINE CROSS

'CANDLES FOR THE WORLD' BY CHRISTINE CROSS 15
CRITIQUE BY MICHAEL MCILVANEY

An interesting image: there is a tension in the composition created by the juxtaposition of asymmetry (the placement of the candles) and symmetry (the lines of the orb and its central placement). The range of tones is limited and the challenge of exposing lighted candles somewhat daunting. However, with overtones of peacefulness and spirituality, this is perhaps an example of an image where mood takes precedence over technical excellence.
