Aron – National Gallery – An exquisite capture of light, shadow, form and function. The almost silhouette of the figure, partially turned to the camera , and with the top of his head just meeting the shaft of light slanting from above. Oh you have pulled it together so well. The black surrounding burn and then white border frame also balance with the rest of the image very well. If the black is from a doorway, and created in camera, as the hint of sprocket holes might suggest, all the better note of your shooting eye skill.
Birger A – Zebra- Nice tonality and texture in your imaging of the animal’s coat. The longer hairs of the mane add all kinds of depth. If this is full frame, wow. If just judicious print cropping, it is still quite nice.
Mick Fagan – Wheat Silos. I really like the subject’s quirks. It is ‘just a silo’, but this one has one silo painted white (quite a while ago) and a dark cap, the other is darker from bearing even less paint, but with a newer cap. Almost like some kind of oversized salt and pepper shakers. Then there are the neat crisp lines in the riser and horizontal truss, and the undulations of the corrugated storage building. So many shapes depicted so well in one image of what many might pass by as a bland pastoral building scene.
