Photography Competition 70: Panoramic Landscape Photography Montage

The theme for the group classes this fortnight was panoramic landscape photography and students learned to shoot multiple frames and stitch them together for ultra wide images. It couldn't have been harder to judge - the overall standard of entries was incredibly high, which explains why we have 11 finalists this week!

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, just be sure to tag the instructor in each group, who is identified each Tuesday night.

To see all of the photography competition entries, head to the album on the Photoh Facebook page here.

The finalists this fortnight are:

Alan Branch, Adelaide

Alexa Nguyen, Adelaide

Samantha Lodge, Adelaide

John Butler, Brisbane

Bhaumik Bumia, Canberra

Glenn Cockerton, Melbourne

Laura O'Grady, Melbourne

Ryan McDiarmid, Perth

Sandra Kennedy, Perth

Janie Golding, Sydney

Kathy Wallace, Sydney

The winner this fortnight is...Janie Golding in Sydney. Congratulations, you have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher! The curved view of the shore acts as a leading line across the frame, separating the flurry of activity on the sand from the motion of the water, and allowing the eye to take in all the details without being overwhelmed. The rocks act as a strong foreground element too, emphasising the viewpoint of looking down and over everyone. This photo is obviously greatly enhanced by being shot panoramically. Great work!

And in second place we have...Alan Branch from Adelaide, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher. While this photo is not as wide as some other entries, the composition Alan has used with the horizon high up in the frame, and including only a few elements (just the water, jetty and a minimal background) has helped to elongate the view. The colours also add another layer of interest to the otherwise very simple image - the grey tones of the sky help to draw out the greeny-yellowy shallow depths of the water. It definitely shows how panoramas can be amplified to be fine art images.

The challenge for next fortnight is suburban architecture photography where students will focus on shooting everyday homes and features of more traditional architecture. Entries opened on Saturday the 4th November and will close on Thursday the 16th November 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.
