Online Competition - The Beach August/September 2019

This month's competition was kindly judged for us by the chair of Abergavenny Camera Club, Julie Morgan AWPF. This is what Julie said about the competition: " Beach - you’d think this would be easy wouldn’t you to get ‘that’ shot. With seemingly endless photo opportunities stretching as far as the eye can see. And it is easy, if you’re after just any old shot. But as ever, it’s not that simple for us and as with all photography, we need to ‘see’ what no-one else has seen. With the world and his wife taking photos, we if we want to call ourselves photographers, need to be ‘making’ not ‘taking’ photographs. And it is with this thought I opened up your submissions to this competition. I am looking for different, interesting, unusual."
The results were as follows: 1st, On the Beach by Keith Sharples. 2nd, Porth Beach by Adrian Butcher. 3rd, The Beach Castle by John Crowland. Three images were highly commended, Carswell Beach by Janet Cox, Cogden Beach by Adrian Butcher and The Beach Sunset by John Crowland. Two images were commended, Early Morning Swim by Peter Farrar and Good Beach Weather by Lyn Sharples. Congratulations to all.
