A old world image of an old Salt surveying the weather has been named best entry in this year’s Queenscliff Harbour Capture Winter Competition.
Photographer Nick Randall was applauded for his ability to deliver on the competition brief of capturing the mood of the harbour during the quieter winter months. The image, a portrait of Randall himself, was taken with a timer.
“Wonderful character examination, winter feel with heavy coat & wet marina looking out into the grey clouds. Using the textured brush in photoshop gives it an old world feel, which is a great use of this effect,” said judge Michael Chambers.
Richard Misquitta’s photo of two people rugged up and fishing was named runner up, while James Grinter’s image of a storm rolling in over the harbour won third place.
The Students prize was awarded to Ocean Grove Primary school’s Kalinda Caligari and featured an artistic photograph shot through the bars of the harbour tower.
