WINNERS P52-2-38: Automobiles
Posted By: Rense, 04-08-2010, 12:10 PM

Because Mar aka Photolady wasn't able to judge automobile P52, Rob asked me to judge,
a task I am honoured to do. I will give some short comments on all photos, in order of entrance, and then I will designate the winner, and a number 2 and 3.
All very subjective, I admit, but I feel there is no time to do it in very fine detail, with a point system. Hope you all don't mind. Here they are!

Keith/Nomad: nice shot, with smooth lines and very much detail.The reflections fit the classic car very well!
I would like to see more of this oldie!

Rob/Mithrandir: very much detail in this one, nice colours and very sharp! I would have liked some less detail in the background,
it's a little distracting imo, although the car fits very well in this environment! It's yours, isn't it?

Xsalfior: great shot, nice PP! I like the colours in this one, where the attention is drawn to the car!

Iris: great perspective, nice surroundings, with great atmosphere, I really like your shot.I would have liked a frontal look on the car though...

Tamia: nice one ! Nice colours, and I love the OOF area. I'm missing a real sharp part, which is a pity, I think.

Bruce/Bramela: a "macro" of a car . I like the idea, the colours and forms.

John/Xjjohnno: what a great car! I like such frontal pics better than the ones of the back of cars, generally spoken.
Difficult lighting circumstances, with a slightly overexposed sky and a slightly underexposed foreground...

Frank/xs400: another detail, with a very fine DOF and some very good background highlights. Love the B&W!

And here are the winners:

THIRD: Frank, with the photo of the shift

SECOND: Keith, with the photo of the reflections

and FIRST: Xsalfior, with the Calgary Race City

Well done all, I liked your contributions!
Some more days to shoot clouds!!

EDIT: according to the exif, Xsalfiors' photo seems to be from a time period prior to last week, which means the photo wasn't eligible for judging .

If this is true, then Keith wins this round of P52, will Frank be second and I want to give the third place to Iris, with her Amsterdam PC-Hooftstraattractor car. IF. I hope Xsalfior wil shed his light on this...
Sorry for the confusion, I should have checked this beforehand....

Congratulations to the winners! Even if your photo was taken out of the time frame, Xsalfior, it's a very good one. Thanks for stepping in for Mar, Rense, and for an excellent job of judging. What you said about my photo is absolutely correct. I had one chance with the light being perfect, and I flinched when snapping the shutter.
