The theme for the group classes this fortnight was suburban architecture photography, which encompasses include everything from quaint heritage properties to modern brick townhouses. The groups in each city ventured to different areas all known for specific types of architecture such as the historical homes in Fitzroy in Melbourne, New Farm in Brisbane and Vaucluse House in Sydney, while Adelaide and Perth snapped the waterside homes at Seacliff Beach and on the Perth river.
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.

The winner this fortnight is...John Pohl in Melbourne. Congratulations, you have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher! The unusual and very strong viewpoint of the house really shows off its signature features as one of the many inner city terraces in the Fitzroy community. The untidy condition of it is both a sign of the history and the move away from tradition towards gentrification in Melbourne. It says so much in one frame, and proves how stunning architectural photography can be.
And in second place we have...Ann Hodgson from Sydney, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher. It is an interior shot, with a sweeping view from the staircase down the hall, enhanced by symmetry and pattern repetitions to draw the viewer's eye across the entire frame. It is a very well composed image, well done Ann!
The challenge for next fortnight is backlit portrait photography where students will learn to overcome the challenges of shooting subjects when the sun is behind them. Entries opened on Saturday the 18th November and will close on Thursday the 30th 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.
