This fortnight, the students at the group classes in each city explored different themes with their instructors so we left the competition open to all types of entries.
Because there was no set criteria for this competition, the finalists were chosen based on two different things - technical skill and the emotions their images evoked.
To see all of the photography competition entries, head to the album on the Photoh Facebook page here.
The finalists this fortnight are:
Nicola Johnson, Adelaide
The exposure and unusual composition in this image is a unique take on a close up portrait. Whether intentional or unintentional, the photographer has been reflected in the subject's eye, and captured in the final photo as an almost hidden point of interest.
Melissa Brown, Brisbane
The perspective created by the chosen camera angle in this photo has captured a beautiful moment of childhood innocence.
Laura O'Grady, Melbourne
The framing in this image, and the way the foreground and background have been layered has made it much more visually compelling than a typical landscape photo.
Melissa Shaw, Perth
Great black and white conversion and use of slow shutter speed to create a moody image, well done.
Michelle Kennedy, Perth
This is a great example of food photography without studio lights. The colours in this image compliment each other well and the composition is great.
Leigh Hess, Sydney
Beautiful framing and great macro capture. The focus and clarity of this image is excellent.
The winner this fortnight is...Laura O'Grady from Melbourne! Congratulations, you have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
And in second place we have...Melissa Brown from Brisbane, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher.
