Aneldi Viljoen: Goeie foto, net jammer van die regterkant waar die ketting en gedeelte van motor die oog af trek .Sou dit net uitsny.
Aneldi Viljoen: This is a good view for the human eye, but cameras struggle to capture the extreme contrasts. The metal 'Lid" in the bottom of the image is distracting.
Angelina Pezzoli: well spotted, good focus and detail, lovely colour contrasts. To improve the photograph one could try not get the paving in, it is distracting.
Angelina Pezzoli: Goeie foto, sou net meer wou in zoom om die detail op die rooivink vas te vang.
Denique Viljoen: Die kontak wat jy met die koedoe se oë he,t maak die geleentheid spesiaal. Probeer volgende keer op so 'n plek staan sodat die drade in die agtergrond nie in jou foto sigbaar is nie.
Denique Viljoen: good capture of the sunrays with road giving leading lines to the focal point. The sun is a bit over exposed and to improve the photo one should try get less of the vechile in as it is distracting.
Hennie Knox: Baie goeie foto van aasvoël in vlug. Sal net meer fokus lê op die aasvoël.
Maref Butler: This is a special event you captured. Try to capture your special persons on their own. Tell them you want a photo and try and avoid direct sunlight.
Maref Butler: Good story telling photograph, the colours are striking. To improve the photo, one should remove the elbow and shoe from the right of the photo, and maybe have moved so that the sun was completely behind the person to create a silhouette effect.
Melody Pieterse: Goeie foto van leeu in aksie net jammer dat sy voete onder geampiteer is en die dier in gevangenisskap is. Wil net meer van die leeu se voete en voorgrond sien.
Molefi Sekhonyane: This is a special happening in nature. Your image can tell a lot more if you concentrate on just a part of this antheap so the viewer is not distracted by unnecessary items.
Molefi Sekhonyane: well spotted, good colours. To improve the photograph one could crop off a bit of the very bright foreground which distracts your eye away from the flower. One could try redo the shoot from a different angle to get the yellow flower against the sky.
Schalk Pretorius: Winning photo: The composition makes for a colourful and peaceful rural scene. The veiwers eye is immidiately drawn to the focus point of the bird and the water discharge point. The cloudy sky has impact. The only critisism would be the colour of the sky and the blue hue in the clouds.
Schalk Pretorius: Mooi gebruik van kontrasterende kleure, Interresante lug en teksture in voorgrond, goeie gebruik van lyne om die oog na fokuspunt te lei.
Angelina Pezzoli: Photo would have had more impact if the spider was closer without cropping. Photo seems abit grainy and too cropped, therefore has lost some of the quality. Spider isn't really in focus and there seems to be spots on the leaf that are quite distracting. Good effort though.
Angelina Pezzoli: Nice artistic colourful composition with the natural bee comlementing the man made background. The bee and backrpund is in sharp focus. The viewers eye tends to be drawn to the lighter part of the image which is the bright areas to the left and right. A tighter crop on both left and right would improve the impact of the image and have the viewer focus more on the subject.
Nomvula Sekgetho: Not sure where the focus point of the photo is. The power lines, although I see the vision of the author it can be seen as a distraction rather than adding the photo, try a different angle next time. The bush on the bottom of the image is also not adding to the photos composition.
Mariette Jacobs: Model se rok laat haar mooi uitstaan van die agtergrond, die takke links in die foto trek onnodig aandag en kan uitgecrop word, foto kon verbeter deurdat beide model en perd hul koppe bietjie kon lig.
Mariette Jacobs: I like the composition of the photo, very fairytale like. The colour of the photo seems abit dull, I don’t know if that is a editing and setting mistake. The dress pops quite nicely against the dull background, but overall quality of the photo can be improved.
Nelia Jansen: Nice photo with the backlighting reflectign through the leaves. The focus on the centre is good. The bright backlight dominates the photo and draws the viewers eye away from the focus point of the wasp. The tip of the leaf on the left is just cropped off which can detract from the photo as it appears accidental. That said, I would consider a tighter crop on the whole image, which would reduce the background glare and make the wasp the focal point.
Nelia Jansen: Mooi kleure en teksture, foto is so bietjie besig, gelukkig help die beperkte velddiepte om die oog te fokus op die middel van die foto.
Johan Hayward: Die outeur het die interessante wolke gesien en wou dit vaslê, maar die poging was nie baie suksesvol nie. Die foto kort kontras. Dis nie donker genoeg vir 'n silhoeët nie, en nie lig genoeg sodat detail in die plante sigbaar is nie. Deur dalk net 'n tree na links te gee, met die son direk agter die plant en die strale sou meer prominent gewees het en die plante sou in silhoeët wees.
Johan Hayward: The composition is good with the use of the crescent moon, but the photo lacks impact. Perhaps if taken sooner with the sun impacting on the clouds would have resulted in more colour. The diagonal lines of what appears to be a fence also detracts from the photo.
Mariette van Niekerk: A nice composition with the blossom in the hand of a small child. Better focus on the blossom with a shallow depth of field would have improved the photo.
Mariette van Niekerk: Die foto vertel 'n storie. Die eerste lentebloeisel is gevind deur 'n kind wat buite gespeel het en hy of sy het dit vir Mamma kom wys. Dit lyk soos 'n spontane oomblik wat vasgevang is. Die vlak diepte van veld plaas die fokus op die bloeisel. Die foto kon 'n beter punt gekry het as die fokus op die bloeisel skerper was.
Nelia Jansen: Good composition with the aloe bloom forming a diagonal line across the photo with the bee also attracting the viewers eye. The centre portion of the bloom is in sharp focus. Having the bee in focus with the bloom lower in the image lock the viewers eye on the bee. A higher crop of the image would also reduce the distraction of the diagonal object in the background on the right.
Winning photo: Nelia Jansen: Well captured image of the spider in the centre of its web adorned with mist droplets. The early morning hue also adds to the mood of the photo. Depending on the camera used, a shallow depth of field with the spider and web in focus against a blurred background would have improved the image. Photographers also need to be aware of eliminating man made objects from a scene, such as the car bumper, just visible on the left which draws the viewers eye away from the subject.
Pieter Jacobs: 'n Mooi sonsondergang, met mooi kleure in die lug. Deur die komposisie te verander, kan die foto verbeter word. As die foto so geneem is dat die boom meer op 'n derde geplaas is, sal die foto meer gebalanseer wees. Op die oomblik is daar dooie spasie aan die regterkant.
