All Alone by Peter George

Roy Robertson Hon FRPS and former President of the Royal Photographic Society was invited to judge the images submitted for the Touch Of Yellow competition at Brechin Photographic Society.

This theme captured the imagination of the photographers with a wide range of subjects and photographic styles all with just a hint of yellow within the image.

Roy Robertson commented on the diverse subject matter, and gave many hints on how the photographers could enhance their work by cropping the image to focus on the main focal point with just enough background to set the scene and tell a story.

The winning image in the beginners category was ‘Pussy Willows ‘ by Alexa Hewit with subtle tones of grey with just a hint of yellow.

In the intermediate category Jean Wigglesworth captured an outstanding image of a Flag Iris and in the advanced section Peter George’s lonely sunflower was a strong focal point in his image ‘All Alone’.

The full list of winners is as follows:

Beginners - 1, Pussy Willow by Alexa Hewit; 2, Yellow Flower by Gill Keith; 3, Discontinued Colour by Alexa Hewit.

Intermediate - 1, Flag Iris by Jean Wigglesworth; 2, Painting the Town Yellow by Jennifer Moffat; 3, Top Spec by Mark Hughes.

Advanced - 1, All Alone by Peter George; 2, Wasp by Ian Suttie; 3, The Old Sweet Shop by Ken Ness.
