Tygerberg Photographic Society - August 2016

The last in the catch-up series. Set subject for August was Sunsets/Sunrise/Golden Hour.

For my Set Subject Print entry, I chose a photo taken one evening at Melkbosstrand. The "leading lines" formed by the clouds, rocks, and water, made this sunset one of my special favourites. The image received a Gold rating, as did the flower necklace and the spiral staircase.

For the Digital Set Subject entry, I chose one of the images taken from our flat balcony. Luckily we were there just at the right time of the moon's cycle. The following evening at the same time the moon was too high to be included in the photo. Lots of negative space - just the way I like it. Pity not too many other people have the same likes! The image was rated Silver.

My entry for the Digital Open section was also a stacked image, originally taken for the Macro challenge earlier in the year. This flower was also collected while on an early morning walk, and the detail captured with the macro lens is just fabulous.

Final entry, this time in the Print Open section, was taken in the same restaurant as the "Table for two" image in a prior blog post The staircase was hand-made and interesting in its own right, but the decor in the background just lifted it to a new level.

Must make an effort to do these posts on a more regular basis!
