Thank you to the judges, I am honoured since I am very new to the field of composites.  Thank you to the many masters in this field for your daily inspiration. 

During the lockdown, as many of us did, I took some time going through many youtube videos on composites and started playing around and yes, consulted my guru Hein Waschefort a few times for his inputs.  This composite consists of elements taken from 4 different images and all the techniques were done in photoshop.  I completed the images by adding a mirror reflection (youtube lesson) and added an overlayer of smoke from a veld fire to add the effect of a foggy and misty image

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?


Members of PSSA only are invited to personally enter any one image per month into this competition, and submit it via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com.  If you are not a member of PSSA, you can unfortunately not enter this competition.

If your image has won the Senior or Junior club competition at your club during the month, it will be entered in either of those two competitions for the month.  PLEASE do not enter it into the Web site competition as well for obvious reasons.  Remember, it is the same judges that judge all three competitions for a particular month and having the same image in two competitions, Senior or Junior and the Web site competition will disadvantage the image. If your image does not win in the Senior or Junior Club Competition and you would like to enter it into the Web site competition, you can do so as long as it is a month or so later.

The winning image will be displayed on the home page of our Website for the duration of the month. 

Instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault can be downloaded here  doc

Frequently we do require high resolutions of these images as PSSA use them for Print Exhibitions to promote PSSA as well as showcasing the work being done around the country.

At the end of the PSSA calendar year (30 June of each year) the Website Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
