Congratulations to Carien Kruger from AFO Fotografieklub!
She is our February winner with her image “Flamingo at sunset”
This image consists of 2 images, with absolute no editing, merged togehther in Photoshop, using Layers.
The Flamingo was taken in 2016 at Langebaan and the background was taken 1 year and 2 days later in 2017 at Brittania Bay.
Flamingo – Canon 5Diii, 400mm lens, f 5.6, ISO 200 en 1/6000sec.
Background – Canon 7Di, Lens 16mm, f22, ISO 100, 1/4sec.
The background image was supposed to be a slow shutter seascape, but I was caught by a huge wave and had to run out the sea with the shutter still open.
Our 1st runner-up is Dries Fourie from Vereeniging Photographic Society with “Feed time”
Our 2nd runner-up is Theo van der Merwe from Springs Photographic Club with “Black backed jackal”
Thank you to the judges. They were:
Cathy Jonker – Magalies Foto Fun Club
