Garden Pet by Luke Horsten and set subject winner September 2022: Spirals in nature
Twirled Simplicity has its virtues in photography and this is an excellent example. Perhaps slightly more of the plant in focus would assist but overall a pleasing example. 26 Merit Robyn Simmons 2STAR
Colourful Spiral Active colouration and a good choice of crop to show the photo in a square format. 27 Merit/ SSW David Wilson 4STAR
Fern spirals First glance looks like a pregnancy scan but no its a fern. Nice and sharp and good definition all round but lacks that sparkle needed to get a higher score 25 Gold Phil Sturgess MS
Horns that Spiral Some processing concerns that bring this photo down a bit but otherwise good composition 26 Gold Luke Horsten 5STAR
BUDDING BEAUTY At first glance this didn’t attract but the longer it is on the screen the better it looks. Again perhaps more of the plant in focus would assist. 23 Gold Ingrid Grundlingh 3STAR
Fading Rose Good choice of square format for the subject but seem that lack of processing has left the image a little flat. More contrast would aid the presentation. 24 Gold Daniel Reddie 5STAR August 2022: Sport in action
