- Katharina Kitaeva, Autumn of my life Quite dramatic and effective
use of selective focus. To the right are memories, blurred. The
girl is in the stark, harsh and sharp here and now. Fabulous shot.
John Retallack, Still open: Subtle play of shadows, and a
metaphorical closed door. Chair is suggestive of bars in a jail cell.
We may read into this abstractuib what we will, without fear of
contradiction. We see what we wish to see.
Michael Hughes, Quick change artist at work. Despite the sunshine
this seems a rather gloomy shot. For one thing, the cyclist is
standing in a puddle. For another, the rest of the pack has left him
far behind. Neither of the two seems at all concerned.
Sherie Taylor, Wind Mill This image has a potentially interesting
subject but it's spoiled by the overexposure. Photoshopping might not
succeed in punching it up enough.
Trevor Cunningham, palm silhouette. Chaos, disorder. A tangled
mess. This can't mean anything good.
Chris Strevens, Road to Budapest. The desolation and bleakness of
the scene is depressing. Like being on a 1,500 mile road trip, and
you have to stop because you are exhausted.
Rob Talbot, House Number 6. Interesting juxtaposition of warm vs.
cold color. And of course citing geographical coordinates is much
easier than typing out
Penrhyndeudraeth, Gwynedd LL48 6, United Kingdom.
