This ROCKLEY REVIEW shows the work of Nadia K. A year ago she was in the intern stage, spending a full year as a fledgling KWC and now lifts her game to chase elusive SUPER SHOTS. Some work, and others were worth taking the risk. And each selected here deserve their own POST Of PRAISE.
ffrck18gs-nk10. Focus to make sharp or… perhaps go for a slight blur… that is the question. Here Nadia aimed at the bunch, and it has worked providing a “softness” to the image that does it justice. It is all in the eye of the beholder, and thus sometimes a mistake works to the advantage. It will be interesting to see how the CHOICEMAKERS may view this image.
ffrck18gs-nk6. It needs a defining eye to get everything right! Here the well composed image of flowers and the interior of the Exhibition Buildings is spoilt by the horizontal being slightly off centre. Even the best can get this wrong. Easy answer; always check your shot afterwards, and go back.
ffrck18gs-nk1. This has been a favoured composition for Nadias submissions, and the choice of colour makes for an appealing image that takes the eye. Again, a softness to the backdrop fades it into the background so as not to detract from the overall result.
XXffrck18gs-nk4 The magnificent arched windows at either end of the Exhibition building provide a charismatic feeling to the iconic and heritage listed architecture. Nadias attempt to capture was inspirational with the flowers in the foreground. Unfortunately as is so often the case, the colours have been washed out by the flash. But, using your imagination you can see a carpet effect that was well worth the try.
ffrck18gs-nk12. A potent blue flower enters from slightly left stage giving a nice balance to the image. The wood of the floor providing a worthy background to the image, and adding to the brilliance of the flower. A steady hand holds the detail in check.
ffrck18gs-nk3. This image fired up the imagination using flowers that look like they are shrouded in a haze and the paper fold; sharp and distinctive. Without knowing, this could be an eligible entrant for the Tony Imagine Award in the 18 ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION.
