Our March winner is Charmaine Joubert from PECC who wins with her image "Birds Flying"

2017.03 1 Charmaine Joubert Port Elizabeth Camera Club Birds flying

My image is two images blended together. Both images are of Cape Sparrows (Mossies) taken at a waterhole in the Kgalagadi. One image is a panning photo of the birds in flight, taken with a slow shutter speed 1/30sec which I blurred even more in Photoshop and the other is taken with a fast shutter speed 1/3200sec. I then blended the two together. In Photoshop I used layers to add saturation, contrast and selective colour only to the birds because I wanted the blurred background to remain soft and neutral.



Our 1st runner-up is Bruce Hepburn from West Rand Photographic Club with "Veiled in Blue"
