Re: 190th FTU Salon - Power
Not a huge amount of entries but more than enough in terms of quality to give me a dilemma when judging and I enjoyed seeing them all. Here are the results:
3rd Bitrix - There is some serious photoshopping going on here, but the result very much suits the subject and emphasises the enormous power of the mechanical digger.
2nd Barrie - I'm glad you settled for this picture rather than the steam train, because it fits the theme so well but from a refreshing angle. You would not normally associate a child with the theme of power, yet in this delightful shot there is no doubting the power and determination of your young grandson who is clearly on a mission.
1st Kurt - I love the mystical atmosphere as the tiny figure in red appears to be summoning the raw, awesome power of Nature. A fantastic photograph and a wonderful interpretation of the theme!
I was disappointed not to be able to find a place in the top three for several other entries, which were perfectly good interpretations of the theme and composed and processed to a very high standard.
Anyway, it's over to you, Kurt for the next Salon. Once you have posted it I will edit the rules to reflect the recent decision to allow two entries per member in the competition.
