Photoh Competition 109: Nature Photography Montage

The theme for the photography challenge this fortnight was Nature Photography!.

Nature photography can encompass a huge range of different photography styles, from plants to animals and wildlife.

So many subjects, styles and techniques were covered!

All of the photo entries from this competition theme can be seen on the Photoh Facebook page competition here.

Here are our finalists for the Nature Photography competition:

Emily Reynolds Seaman, Adelaide

Caryn Maciejewski‎, Brisbane

Danny Rooster, Melbourne

Emma Thorp, Perth

Jana Sokolovskaja, Sydney

The Winner

The winner this fortnight is...Caryn Maciejewski in Brisbane!

Congratulations Caryn! You have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
It was Caryn's use of depth of field that really caught our attention to this stunning shot of a butterfly. The wide aperture has reduced the busy scene in the background to a milky effect bokeh, which works to emphasise the textures and patterns placed in the foreground.
Nature is full of patterns, textures and colours, and sometimes it can be tricky to find a composition that uses all three, but in a visually effective way. We really like how Caryn has taken the time to consider the composition here, and maximised the effect of the texture and punchiness of the butterfly's wings. The portrait orientation works particularly well with the stem of the plant.

The theme for next fortnight is Black&White Photography

There’s a lot more to black&white photography than just desaturating your images!

We want to see how you use black&white photography creatively to capture light, contrast and the scenes around you.

Think about why you're choosing to capture the shot in black&white, and how you can make the most of the tones and textures in a world without colour.
