"Virtual" Summer Show River Gardener's Association

Introduction

With the COVID-19 Pandemic precautions forcing the cancellation of our Summer Show (due to take place on 04 July 2020) we have decided to host a "Virtual" Summer Show - Exhibitors, Visitors and the wider community were asked to send in Photos and Content for all to enjoy from the safety of your own home. We would like to Thank all those who have contributed and made such a good effort, specifically the Astor College Photography Department who've sent in many contributions.

So, Grab a Cup of tea and a slice of Cake and scroll down for a splash of Summer!

Note: Entries with initials are students at Astor College - full names not published for data-protection reasons.

A Close up of a Rose

By Pat H

Third Prize

by B.L
by A.J
by E.N

Second Prize

"Another good close up, showing nice detail and petal formation. The photographer has also thought about the background which is not complex or distracting."

by A.J

First Prize:

"Nice close up, showing flower and petal details. The viewer can especially see the complexity of petals in a rose."

A Mono Chrome Photo

by Bernard S

Second Prize

"A nicely seen image. A simple enough subject and probably one a lot of people would ignore. An imp-active image. Good contrast and shadow with a nice range of textures."

by Mike B
by M.H

Third Prize

"Lovely image; a nice and imaginative idea. Good contrast in the image, with a range of textures and monochrome shades. But, the horizon needs to be straightened."

by Kirsty E

First Prize

"This is a nice landscape image, with good reflections of the trees in the river. Nice contrast. The only adverse comment I would make is that I would tend to crop out as much of the uninteresting sky as possible, using the "letter box" format."

Third Prize

"Nice imaginative image of garden parasols taken from height on a bright day. Good colour."

by A.J
by J.M

Second Prize

"Good imagination in creating this. Good lighting on the tennis ball; narrow depth of field which blurs the background nicely ensuring there is nothing to detract from the main part of the image. Again, tennis (and its association with Wimbledon) immediately makes the viewer think of summer."

by C.M

First Prize

"A nice sharp image showing colourful beach huts at the seaside. This image immediately made me think of summer."

"River through the Lens"

by Pat H

Third Prize

"A good sharp image making good use of ambient lighting."

by Zoe H
by Bernard S

Second Prize

"A well known view of River. A sharp image, making good use of the available lighting. Nice reflections and shadows."

by C.B
by C.M
by J.M
by A.J
by R.M

First Prize

"A nice time laps image, giving the running water the well known "milky" effect. The image shows the river running through the ruins of a mill, of which there were plenty in the village and along this river. Nice light on the water."

by R.M
by A.J

Photo of Cliffs

by Pat H
by Bernard S
by M.H

First Prize

"Taken from the ground looking up, and this achieves the impression of the size and scale, towering over the viewer. The image gives a good sense of the size and majesty of cliffs."

by T.G
by A.G
by C.M

Third Prize

"A nice image, which shows the cliffs proximity to the sea and their size. The inclusion of the tower also helps with scale."

by C.B
by A.J
by E.N
by J.W
by D.B
by B.C

Second Prize

"A panoramic image which illustrates the scale and nature of cliffs. The inclusion of buildings, especially Dover Castle and the Port of Dover well illustrates the sheer size of the cliffs and how they dwarf their surroundings."

by R.M

A Setting Sun

by M.W
by Zoe H
by Bernard S
by Mike B

Second Prize

"Beautiful image of a bare tree wonderfully silhouetted against the setting sun. A lovely sky; the image is enhanced by the long shadow of the tree."

by N.H
by Kirsty E
by A.H

Third Prize
