Congratulations, Dick, on your fine work!
Judges reaction to Chicory
photograph. MCC photo club, Brisbane, AU
38. Chicory. SECOND PLACE. This is the type
of work we should all be aiming at when doing close up work.
It has great saturated colour and has an excellent depth
of focus as well as being side flashed for a more vivid
effect. The background black makes the subject stand out
even more. The sharpness is exceptional even down to the
detail of showing the hair on the stems and leaves. Even
though the rules say odd numbers you have successfully smashed
this rule and produced a great photograph. Be proud of what
you have achieved. I would be if it were mine.

there some beautiful lighting in this photo? The placement
of the formation of birds couldn't be better.

surprised it wasn't placed higher - like first place.
