Senior Club Competition Winners July 2018

Jacques Sellschop Hibiscus Coast Photographic Society The target spotted

Congratulations to Jacques Sellschop from Hibiscus Coast Photographic Society!

He is our July winner with his image “The Target Spotted”

It being late on a June afternoon at Djuma in the Sabi Sands Reserve, the light levels were very low. So I chose an ISO of 1600 for a handheld Nikon D800 set on aperture priority. It was fitted with a Nikon 70-200mm lens set on 200mm to give me an aperture of f3.2 for extra light and a diffused background. With an EV of -1.7, the shutter speed was a 640th. Finding the leopard and positioning the vehicle was a tribute to the staff of the ‘Big Cats Safari’ offered by the ‘At Close Quarters’ organisation. In these cases things happen quickly and are gone in a flash. So one cannot deny a significant element of luck in having recorded this elusive moment in time.


Our 1st runner-up is Hein Beukes from Beachcombers Photography Club with “Chinese Bank”
