Photography Challenge 90: Landscape Photography Montage


The theme this fortnight was Landscape Photography.

We set no guidelines for this theme, and instead encouraged you to go out and capture scenes that could have included: the natural world, cityscapes, rivers, oceans or desert.

You certainly delivered! The album of entries was a snapshot of the incredible landscapes we have here in Australia as well as further afield in foreign continents. There was a huge mix of viewpoints, colour, scale and subjects. This made it very tough for us to pick the finalists! We were looking for a good use of camera settings for the chosen scene, as well as a strong composition that showed off the landscape effectively.

Head over to the Photoh Facebook page to see all of the competition entries here.

Judging is now only done for first and second place winners only. Any feedback on images can be sought in our Facebook groups during Critique Me Tuesday, both before and after the competitions. Critique Me Tuesday is now open 10am-10pm every Tuesday in the city Facebook groups.

The winner this fortnight is...Cathie Thomas from Adelaide! Congratulations Cathie! You have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
Cathie's photograph caught our eye as it showcases the magnificent tree really effectively. Her choice of the wide angle lens opens up the landscape surrounding it so that you can take it the whole scene. The symmetry of the composition frames the centre really well, and the contrasted lighting ensures that the tree takes centre stage.
This is a photograph that revels in simplicity, but actually takes a good eye and planning to achieve such a striking shot.


And in second place we have...Michael Reid from Canberra, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher!
The colours and contrasts in this photograph by Michael are so eye-catching. We loved how there's the battle of light and darkness going on in the frame, with the wind turbines sitting as tiny objects, and dominated by the clouds and nature above. Very strong composition with the clear layers of different subjects (land - man-made structures - sky - clouds) and colours.


The theme for next fortnight is Architecture Photography
You could argue that both photographers and architects are always striving to achieve visually striking pieces of art that can document the feel and atmosphere of a place or time.

This challenge is all about capturing architecture in a way that shows off the look or personality of a building, or town, in an interesting way.

Perhaps you'll be using your wide angle lens to get the whole building in the shot, or getting in closer to textures or details. You could find two buildings that sit in contrast next to each other (modern versus old?) or hone in on your favourite local building. Will you be photographing from the inside, or from the street?

Entries opened on Friday the 24th August and will close on Thursday the 6th September at 23:59 AEST.

To enter, simply do one of the following:
Post your photo on the Photoh Facebook wall stating your city.
Send your entry via Facebook messenger to the Photoh Facebook page
Email your entry to: victoria@photoh.com.au


First prize is a $100 JB Hifi voucher and second prize is a $50 JB Hifi voucher.
