Junior Club Competition Winners Jan 2019

Pretoria Photographic Society Roelof Groesbeek Uneasy

Congratulations to Roelof Groesbeek from Pretoria Photographic Society!

He is our November winner with the image “Uneasy”

We were fortunate to have a great afternoon session at a waterhole that was regularly frequented by a number of animals at that time. A troop of baboons came along to the waterhole but for some reason they were quite skittish and were never at ease.
The one on the left was exceptionally skittish and kept on looking around while his mate was having a drink.
What makes this photo special for me is that you have eye contact with the baboon on the right depicting his awareness and the one on the left creating more tension by depicting the constant uneasiness that game have to live with as a constant in the wild.
The bee on the top right-hand corner brings a bit of humour to the photo.

Taken with a Canon 5D IV with 500mm lens mk1, f 8, ISO4000 and shutter speed 1/1600.


Our 1st runner-up is Linza van Aswegen from Vereeniging Photographic Society with “Family Portrait”
