Senior Club Competition Winners August 2019

Krugersdorp Camera Club - Eddie Reinecke - Helmeted Guineafowl Fligh

 

Congratulations to Eddie Reinecke from Krugersdorp Camera Club

Eddie is our August winner with “Helmeted Guineafowl Flight”

I’ve been watching the Guineafowl coming in to feed for the last few weeks. I was reluctant to pick up my camera, as I thought I already had an excellent image of a Guineafowl in flight. I noticed the nice backlighting as they flew past. One late afternoon I decided to give it a go and was very happy with the results. This image was taken with my EF100-400mm lens at f7.1, ISO 2000. I underexposed the image by 2 stops and it required only a little tweaking in Photoshop.

 

Our 1st runner-up is Roger Trythall from Cape Town Photographic Society – with “Ethiopia Chemistry lesson”

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?

This is a PSSA monthly competition where clubs enter their monthly Senior winner onto Photovault. Appointed judges select the winning image.  The monthly winner gets displayed on the home page of our Web site for the duration of the month.  

For the Senior Club Competition Winner of the Month, a club representative (ideally the Chairperson) submits the Senior club winner via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com

Instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault can be downloaded here  doc

Frequently we do require high resolutions of these images as PSSA use them for Print Exhibitions to promote PSSA as well as showcasing the work being done around the country.

At the end of the PSSA calendar year (30 June of each year) the Senior Club Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
