This challenge was all about capturing the mood, scale and feel of a building. This could have been skyscrapers, local town buildings, interior shots or smaller details of architecture.
The only guideline we put forward was to capture your chosen detail or structure in an effective way by using a suitable viewpoint and camera settings. You certainly delivered! We received a fantastic range of different buildings, vantage points and photography styles.
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 finalists this fortnight are:
Dallian Macadam, Adelaide
Lisa Lawrie, Brisbane
Patrick Dunphy, Canberra
Lyn O'Grady, Melbourne
Chong Lee, Perth
Ann Hodgson, Sydney
The winner this fortnight is...Ann Hodgson from Sydney! Congratulations Ann! You have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
Ann's photograph stood out to us because it shows off the sheer scale of her chosen building through her low angle shot. Very well framed by creating symmetry on either side of the composition, and leaving enough negative space above to include the dramatic sky. The strong contrasts in the black&white tones adds even more drama to the image, and highlights the rows of windows and different materials in an interesting way. A very bold, strong architecture photograph!
And in second place we have...Lyn O'Grady from Melbourne, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher!
The repetitive patterns in this shot are really eye-catching, and the tight crop is effective in making the small details the star of the composition.
It can be tricky to resist trying to get everything in the shot, but here Lyn has focused on something that has caught her eye, and shown off the architect's details that could easily tell the story of the whole building.
The theme for next fortnight is Sunset Photography Sunset photography blog article here.
Sunsets are perhaps one of the most magical things to capture with your camera, so go out and find your favourite sunset spot for this challenge!
We're looking for entries that have taken care with camera settings and a good exposure. You could find a viewpoint in the city or landscape, or perhaps on the beach. Play with reflections, colour or silhouettes, and don't be afraid to get creative!
Entries opened on Friday the 7th September and will close on Thursday the 20th September at 23:59 AEST.
