We were proud to host the Knox camera club photo competition last week, running from the 22nd to the 25th of September. As one of the main sponsors of the competition, Skymirror gallery will be displaying prints of all the top 3 photos for sale in store.
Photos were judged based on technical execution, originality, and aesthetic quality. Here are the 3 winning images.
3rd place: Carol McAllister with "Family Time"
2nd place: Fred Stewart with "Above Calm Waters"
1st place: Alex Barry with "Sand fossils"
My name is Alex, I am a nurse and amateur photographer. I enjoy getting out with my camera and finding smaller scenes in a larger landscape. I find this process helps me unwind from the stress of working in a hospital, especially in the recent years of COVID.
I shot this image with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark 2 and my 60mm macro lens. Exposure was 1/100sec at f/5.6 ISO 800.
When I took this image, the sun was setting behind a very dense cloud bank, so not much colour was coming through on the horizon. I took my macro lens out and wandered along the lake's edge, looking at the interesting rock and sand patterns. I found this formation just as some golden light broke through the clouds. To me, the rocks form a perfect canine face, but others tell me they can see many different things in this image!
