Website Competition Winners July 2022

Jacques Kruger from Ermelo Fotoklub is our July winner!

Jacques, congratulations on your winning image – Drone Fly resting

Jacques says:-

I found this Striped eye Hoverfly resting on a leaf, while strolling through the garden looking for bugs to photograph.  The conditions were just perfect and I was able to capture numerous photos of the hoverfly in order to focus stack the images into one image.  I used a remote shutter and live view (mirror lock) to minimize camera shake while capturing the images.

F-stop: f11

Shutter speed: 1/100

ISO: 250

Lens: Canon 100mm Macro

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.
