Photography Competition 65: Winter Street Photography Montage

This fortnight, the students focused on capturing the mood and activity of people in their home city during winter, using street photography techniques.

Winter is a season that can manifest itself in lots of different ways in Australia but capturing the essence of it in a single frame isn't easy.

The finalists photos in the competition this week have been able to do this effectively.

To see all of the photography competition entries, head to the album on the Photoh Facebook page here. The finalists this fortnight are:

Deborah Forbes‎, Adelaide

Deborah submitted this photo with a title of 'Synchronicity' and the great composition is certainly a reflection of this - people in motion making their way around the Adelaide CBD in winter, all headed in the same direction but lost in their own thoughts.

Lisa Lawrie, Brisbane

The drab environment of this photo all the connotations of winter being chilly and bleak in a single frame, especially in a city like Brisbane which is not known for its cold weather.

Andrew Costigan, Melbourne

While nothing about this image is typical of street photography scenes, the photo speaks volumes about Melbourne in winter. The angle is wide and yet there is only one person on the street, highlighted by her bright red winter jacket and no traffic at all, giving a sense of the city hibernating through the cold months. For that reason Andrew's photo is perfectly in keeping with the theme for this week.

Steve Williams, Melbourne

Steve has chosen a photo to enter that has captured the laneways of the Melbourne CBD in winter as being quiet instead of a hub of activity and people, which seems to be because of the cold Melbourne weather. Like Andrew's photo above, it's an interesting take on street photography when crowds and lots of traffic are often featured, and even if the laneways were actually busy, this photo shows them in a different light.

Nigel Holme, Perth

Winter in Perth is clearly not too cold - with many people out and enjoying the sunshine even while wearing warm jackets. Nigel has entered a frame that really gives a great sense of Perth winter weekend lifestyle.

Kathy Wallace, Sydney

The beach suburbs of Sydney undergo a transformation in winter but the weather is often still sunny and sees many people outside, walking (if not swimming). Kathy's photo is full of great contrasts - the blue sky and sleeveless shirt, versus the cup of coffee and relative solitude of the walkway. It's a well timed photo that is a great fit with the theme this fortnight.

The winner this fortnight is...Andrew Costigan in Melbourne! Congratulations, you have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!

And in second place we have...Deborah Forbes in Adelaide, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher.

The next challenge is nailing focus where students will learn how to take sharper images with less blur. Entries will open on Saturday the 26th August and close on Thursday the 7th September at midnight AEST.

To enter, simply post your photo on the Photoh Facebook wall stating your city. First prize is a $100 JB Hifi voucher and second prize is a $50 JB Hifi voucher.
