Quintus Heine from Tafelberg Fotografieklub is our May winner!
Quintus, congratulations on your winning image – Wooden Island
I live a 40-minute drive from Somerset Beach next to False Bay. In December, I made sure I arrived at the old jetty in the Strand around 5 am so I could set up my camera to be ready to capture the right moment. The tide was coming in. From half an hour before sunrise and half an hour after sunrise, the light changes dramatically every few moments. Sunrise was 5:27. It was only at 5:58 that the light surprised me to capture this moment. The shutter speed was 10 sec to get the soft water image. ISO-64; f11; 10 stop ND filter; with a Nikon d810 and 25mm.
Our 1st runner-up is David Barnes from Tygerberg Photographic Society with ” Stop Right There”
Our 2nd runner-up is Dave Wickham from Westville Camera Club with “Passionate Pair”
Thank you to the judges:
Conrad Kelsey from Westville CC
Alta Ooosthuizen – Pretoria Photographic Club
Alan Nixon – Ballitto Photo Club

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?
Members of PSSA only are invited to personally enter any one image per month into this competition, and submit it via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com. If you are not a member of PSSA, you can unfortunately not enter this competition.
If your image has won the Senior or Junior club competition at your club during the month, it will be entered in either of those two competitions for the month. PLEASE do not enter it into the Web site competition as well for obvious reasons. Remember, it is the same judges that judge all three competitions for a particular month and having the same image in two competitions, Senior or Junior and the Web site competition will disadvantage the image. If your image does not win in the Senior or Junior Club Competition and you would like to enter it into the Web site competition, you can do so as long as it is a month or so later.
The winning image will be displayed on the home page of our Website for the duration of the month.
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 Website Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
