We have been absolutely blown away by the high standard of photography in this fortnight's competition!
The group classes theme this fortnight was long exposures and it's amazing to see so many different styles of photography used.
From photographing stars, to capturing motion blur, this fortnight's entries have been incredibly varied and colourful! A gallery of all the photographs can be seen on the Photoh Facebook page.
Take a look at the finalists below:
David Munro, Adelaide
Simple but beautiful use of leading lines.
Gavin Rudge, Adelaide
We love the depth and the incredible detail in this photo.
Marnie Sullivan, Adelaide
Fantastic use of colour here, Marnie has captured just the right moment of the sun setting.
Heath Missen, Brisbane
What a dramatic but beautiful capture of a storm.
Satya Che, Melbourne
The framing of this image is fantastic, especially with the lights reflected in the water below.
Laurence Baudoin, Perth
We love the unusual framing of this ferris wheel, and how it stands out against the fading sunlight.
Max Wannell, Perth
Use of long exposure on the humble escalator ... brilliant! What a creative eye!
Neeraj Singh, Perth
This use of long exposure is well planned, clean and packs a punch in colour!
David Tillet, Sydney
You really get a sense of movement with this long exposure photo, and can almost feel the buzz of transport whizzing past!
Kathy Wallace, Sydney
An iconic view with a great creative twist! The leading lines in this photo take you right up to the bridge, brilliant!
Terry O'Hagan, Sydney
This is a postcard-worth photo that is so full of amazing little details!
The winner for first prize this fortnight is...David Munro from Adelaide! Wow ... what a beautiful shot! The use of slow shutter speed to capture the waves, and creating that mist-like water is stunning, and paired with the pink and purple hues makes this a serene and truly calming image. We also love David's use of leading lines, and how he has made sure he places the architecture right in the centre of the frame to create a dramatic effect.
David you have won a $100 JB Hi-Fi voucher!
The winner for second prize is...Heath Missen from Brisbane. Congratulations to Heath, who has won a $50 JB Hi-Fi voucher. Whether Heath was chasing a storm, or simply very quick on his feet, he has captured the lightening bolts perfectly. We love the use of long exposure to capture multiple bolts in one image, with the composition showing the glittering city lights below.
The next photography challenge theme is Shooting in Harsh Light. Entries will open on Saturday the 13th August and close on Thursday 25th August at midnight. To enter, simply post your photo on the Photoh Facebook wall stating your city.
