Senior Club Competition Winners September 2023

Hits: 189

Johan Greyling from AFO Photography Club is our September winner!

Johan, congratulations on your winning image – Tower Bridge London

Johan says:-

This image was taken February 2020 at 19h30 in the evening of London Tower Bridge.  It was a typical London cloudy evening with just a simmer of sunset lightning the clouds.

The little bit off golden light and the warm colours from the spotlights on the tower that reflected in the water drew my attention.  I decided to use a really long exposure to get the silky feeling on the water.

The settings were as follows:

Sony A9 with 24-105mm Sony lens
Focal distance 29mm
13,0 seconds @ F8,0
ISO 500
+0,7 Exposure Compensation

Editing done in Lightroom

Our 1st runner-up is Jan van Niekerk from Ermelo Fotoklub with “Lanner in Flight”
Our 2nd runner-up is Trudi du Toit from Cape Town Photographic Society with “Twirl with Broom

Thank you to the judges:

Des van Tonder – Maritzburg Camera Club
Henk Scheepers – Vanderbijlpark Fotografiese Vereniging
Herman Olivier – Swartland Fotografieklub

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.

Click here to download instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault

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.
