2nd Set Subject Competition (2021/22) – Contre Jour

The 2nd Set Subject Competition of the 2021/2 season on the subject ‘Contre Jour’ was judged on 17th February by Alfred Brown (CPAGB) from both South Manchester and Branhall Photographic Societies. There were 100 PDI and print images to get through, but Alf kept his comments short and to the point so we finished in good time. Recurring comments were about controlling specular highlights, achieving good black and white tones in mono images and sometimes cropping to a letterbox shape for added impact.

The featured image for this competition is Celestial Dawn by Chris Taylor, which scored 20pts in the PDI category.
