Monthly Competition 5: 'Low Light' Prints and 'Open' DPIs
Judge: John Hartshorne
Your DPIs should have been taken in low ambient light such as after sunset or at night, which requires special consideration such as the use of extended exposure times, a tripod or high ISO to obtain a correct exposure. Entries can also include photographs taken indoors.
The Graham Trevor British Isles Landscape Competition
Judge: Tony Winfield
Enter your Prints and DPIs taken anywhere in the British Isles (which includes Ireland, Great Britain, the Isle of Man, Shetland, Orkney, the Channel Islands and thousands of smaller islands) to try to win the trophy in memory of our late Member, Graham Trevor.
'Open' Prints and DPIs of 'Panels'
Judge: John Lacey
A panel (or digital portfolio) for the purposes of this competition is a single image containing a number of digital images which are related in some way to a common theme of your choosing. There should be a minimum of 3 images but no maximum, although more than 5 often looks too ‘busy’ and the images themselves are a bit small. The final image should also contain the title and the background can also relate to the theme.
There is a detailed instruction of how to create a Digital Portfolio on the Tutorial page of the DCC website.
Interclub Competition against Kidderminster CC and Studley CC: to be held at Droitwich
Judge: Michael Krier
'Mono' Prints and 'Open' DPIs
Judge: Graham Walton
The FIAP definition of a monochrome image is as follows:
A black and white picture varyingfrom a very dark grey (black) to a very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey in between. A black and white work toned entirely in a single colour will remain a monochrome work able to stand in the black and white category. A black and white work modified by a partial toning or by the addition of one colour becomes a colour work and is not eligible.
The DPIs must have shadows or the patterns created by shadows as the main subject. They can be created by nature, people or buildings etc. There can be an element of abstract in this providing it is obvious that shadows were the basis for the image. Remember that reflections are not shadows.
