Alice Black Award – November 2018 – “A Wet Day in the Horse Yards” by John Stewart

To perpetuate the memory of our late member Alice Black, the club has introduced the ‘Alice Black Memorial Trophy’ to be contested each year on a perpetual basis.

At each month’s Aggregate Competition the judge will select an image from all those entered as the monthly Alice Black Image – they will use their own criteria to select the image regardless of the score given.  All images submitted in the Aggregate Competition have the potential to become a possible winner of the Trophy as there is no restriction on the grade of the entrant or the medium in which the image is presented.

For November 2018 the Alice Black has been awarded to John Stewart for his print “A wet day in the horse yards”.  This image was entered in the Salon Grade Mono Set Subject: “Motion” Print section.

Our judge, Allan Rosser commented “Well done, slow enough to show the drops dropping, but not slow enough for other things to blur. The progression of dark to light enhances the image.”

Alice Black Award – September 2018 – “Morning Coffee” by Sandra Neill

To perpetuate the memory of our late member Alice Black, the club has introduced the ‘Alice Black Memorial Trophy’ to be contested each year on a perpetual basis.

At each month’s Aggregate Competition the judge will select an image from all those entered as the monthly Alice Black Image – they will use their own criteria to select the image regardless of the score given.  All images submitted in the Aggregate Competition have the potential to become a possible winner of the Trophy as there is no restriction on the grade of the entrant or the medium in which the image is presented.

 

For August 2018 the Alice Black has been awarded to Sandra Neill for her print “Morning Coffee”.  This image was entered in the A Grade Mono Set Subject: “Shadows” Print section.

Our judge, Barry Whisson commented “This image has been very carefully staged to put the planter & it’s bowl in massing-counterbalance with the jug and cup, such that you couldn’t have wished for a better combination of shadows…the soft and the hard. The planks of the table provide a texture (of fine line & also surface), and they lend scale to the shot. Look at the subtle part that the small branch (& it’s shadow) play to take our eye to the subject! There’s a great, simple, non-competitive background too. What a so-simple but effective still life. Any improvement?… maybe not having decapitated that lovely plant at the top…but I’m being fussy. It’s OK. Tonal range is just right! Well composed shot! “
