We want to see.
It was very exciting reviewing the submissions for the contest.. They were varied, experimental in nature and people used their imaginations and tried different approaches. Some were very long exposures where we could see the movement of the stars, there was a lot of light painting, double exposures and then thoughtful and compositionally interesting night shots…
I think if there is one comment that I can make it would be that one must consider the composition.. I think a lot of people are just thrilled to get a good exposure and forget about the focus and the composition.. However, those two elements make the different e between the good shots and the great ones….
