June ‘Nature’s Perfect Geometry’ monthly photo comp: the results!
Congratulations to Keith Horton who has won our June ‘Nature’s Perfect Geometry’ photo competition with the image Droplets of water on a cobweb, as judged by our guest judge, photographer Matt Horspool.
Commenting on Keith’s winning image, Matt shared,
It may be easy to overlook Keith’s winning image amongst the vibrant colours of the other entries, but when viewed in full-screen glory, I was immediately mesmerized by its intricate patterns.
I love the endless pathways of this particular web and how it represents perfect geometric patterns, yet in a non-typical spiderweb sense.The use of black and white also accentuates the contrast between lines and circles. Congratulations Keith.
As winner, Keith will take home the Glen Grant ARBORALIS, 10YO and 18YO, valued at $295 thanks to our wonderful sponsor The Glen Grant.
Matt has also given a special mention to the following three entries:
Over on Facebook, Nathaniel Lau has won our People's Choice award for the image Nature's Ancient Lines, which received over 500 likes! As People's Choice winner, Nathaniel has won a 12-month digital subscription to either Australian Photography or Capture magazine.
