For the third round I submitted a re-worked image of a stag in silhouette. This was in the Digital Image League at Bracknell Camera Club and again was an open round with two images. In this round, I only submitted one image as I had forgotten the opportunity for a second!
This stag was above us on a small hill making his way towards Pen Ponds.
Summary of judge’s comments
… the stag is silhouetted there, he is sufficiently detailed to enable us to pick out the texture of his coat and mane
… I enjoyed the overall feel of that, the range and form of his antler has been well displayed,
… the cloud formation is in this instance quite complementary, it gives us just sufficient detail to reflect the difference in form of the cloud scrape
…yes nicely done
There were 28 images in this round in the Division 1.
