In a departure from previous years there will be no online voting for this year’s POP PIKz POLL with the only votes to count being by those who took the time to stop by the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION and make their choices. Also for the first time too, FOCUS FORCE is showing some of the opinions of those who went to the trouble, and why they made their decisions. The Kids With Cameras should find it interesting, and inspiring as should the focusfor viewers. Also taking another bold step, not just two, but 4 of the images will be reproduced as KIDzPIKz ROCKLEY greeting cards. Congratulations to those 4. And if you chose them you can purchase a set in time for MOTHERS DAY gift giving for that special mum in your life. READ FOYM this week for more news as to the announcement of the winner of the framed image of the number one choice. If you chose it; you’re in the running.
POP PIKz NO. 1o. (KWC PH;MR.) Kim Pastore thought the sunflowers reminded her of a country setting. Can’t argue with that. Pete Mayers, visiting from Spain was inspired to say;” I love sunflowers, and the picture is so bright; like sunshine”.
POP PIKz NO. 9.(KWC PH;LP.) Good blurred background and nice composition is how Rosemary Irving pondered this one. Kitty Ward compacted it into a simple observation of it shows the flowers, the sculpture and the hall.
POP PIKz NO. 8. (KWC PH; SF.) Lyndel Robinson loved the “olde worlde” elegance of the image. While Alan Walker, an obvious camera enthusiast was impressed by the leading lines of the fence rail drawing you into the centred image of the statue. Esme Tyson felt this was clear, simple and beautiful.
POP PIKz NO. 7.(KWC PH;SF.) Kaye Boone was taken by the detail, close up and angle. I like hibiscus mused Kaylene Hyne and it has soft friendly colours. Margaret Juhl noted that macro had been used, and the images clarity. Kerry Marshall observed that the stamen is almost 3D – with a fuzzy background. Lovely, nice colours and angles was Victoria B’s opinion.
POP PIKz NO. 6.(KWC PH;LP.) Rosemary Walsh said she could visualise it as a card. Melissa Ryan was impressed by it’s artistic merit.. Bernard Romerona thought the composition would make an eye-catching design.
POP PIKz NO. 5.(KWC PH;MP.) Evelyn Corrin loves the colour and the fact that the flowers are not centre stage. The eye of Ursula Tursky was taken by the purple-green-green contrasts and the light.
POP PIKz NO. 4.(KWC PH;MR.) Kaden Caldicott was so impressed wrote this opinion; Center third (so not centred), blurry background. Sharp image. Bright subject and dark background. Love it. So, what else is there to say! Except for this by Chloe Stewart of Canada who said it looked like a good greeting card photo.
POP PIKz NO. 3. (KWC PH;LP.) I love the composition said Bev Lundberg, and that the flower fills the frame. And florist Deanne Elliot of New South Wales finds it hard to find suitable images on sympathy cards. This, she thinks fits the bill. Lyndel McManus found it to be perfect rose and well composed.
POP PIKz NO. 2. (KWC PH;LP.) It is a very different, yet inspiring photo. A unique way to view flowers and I love blue! Please compliment the young photographer highly for me. The way is everything is all blue – it looks nice said Nadia K. Sophie Cook was taken by the colour tone consistency, and well framed. Donna Dunning found it to be unusual and so beautiful. Chris McClean also impressed by the unusual colour blue, and reflections are lovely.
POP PIKz NO. 1.(KWC PH;LP.) Camelias are a favourite of mine wrote Mavis Clegg. I like how there are 3 blooms photographed, and there are raindrops. Lily Farrah said simply; “it looks good”. Jenny MacDonald liked the water drops, and organization of branches. Sharon Mills couldn’t go past it’s clarity, colour and design. Rose Bickle; it has a lovely view with the dew on the petals. Judy Lackman said it is well focused and has great detail, and is well centred.
