SECTION K: PHOTOGRAPHIC
SECOND! Nigel Pope, Killearn | "Kelpie cut!! #lockdownhair"
The judge said: “Another very relevant and extremely funny image that will appeal to the ladies, looking at these images. Wild swimming in Scotland with a beautiful haircut!”
WINNER! Alistair Ritchie, Balfron | "Lockdown"
The judge said: “This an exceptional photograph and subject. I would imagine that the keys would all be assembled, glued/strung together, very thoughtful, time consuming and very relevant to present times. The quality of the focusing and depth of field shows great skill. Well done.”
K3 Photograph – Animal/Pet
SECOND! Kay Roxby, Killearn | "Tiny field mouse hanging around in a Killearn garden"
The judge said: “An endearing subject, that I’m sure would have been very difficult to capture,especially in such focus and detail! It must have vanished in a flash after the photographer captured this amazing moment!”
K2 Photograph of Plant – Flowering or Otherwise
SECOND! Peter Smith, Killearn | "Alpine Purple Saxifrage. Langfluh, Saas-Fee, Switzerland"
The judge said: “Another fine photograph. Beautiful colour balance of greys, greens and purples. Excellent focus, depth of field and an image that emphasizes many shapes and textures too.”
K4 Photograph – Any other subject
SECOND! Gwyneth Bell Bearsden
The judge said: “A beautiful calm serene sandy beach with an island in the background and a lovely blue sky with wispy clouds. Could be up the west coast of Scotland, or abroad. During these difficult times, a place of peace!”
