ROPE MAKING - Kathy Buckard
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 88
Technique: 29 Impact: 28 Composition: 31
This is a well composed and intriguing image. The photographer has managed to make very complicated subject matter into an appealing image. The wide angle of the spools on the far right lead the eye into the rest of the room.

Spring Planting, A Family Event - Thomas E Hughes
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 84
Technique: 28 Impact: 28 Composition: 28
I really like this image. It's interesting and the leading lines are well defined. However I think I would not have cropped in so tightly, if that was an option. It feels a little cramped to me. I'd like more of a feel for where the group is going.

Powder Room at History Fort Clinch - Thomas E Hughes
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 81
Technique: 26 Impact: 25 Composition: 30
This is an intriguing image. While it is centered to the max, the golden color of the door at the end of the tunnel is enough to make it very pleasing to the eye. The fact that the photo is sharp throughout works well also.

Stairway to Heaven - Joan V Smith
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 86
Technique: 29 Impact: 28 Composition: 29
Gorgeous light and interesting cropping. There's a lot going on but I like the way the stair railing leads the eye to the stained glass window in a curving manner.

CABIN IN THE WOODS - Judy Boyd
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 72
Technique: 24 Impact: 21 Composition: 27
Pretty image of a cabin in the woods. i might have cropped a little off the right side to make the cabin a little less centered. But nice detail and lovely color.

Follow the fences - Dorothy Finley
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 70
Technique: 26 Impact: 17 Composition: 27
Quiet moment on the dunes. I might have cropped out some of the sky, which isn't very interesting, and focused more on the sand and grasses.

MARSHALL POINT - Steven Burgess
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 86
Technique: 28 Impact: 30 Composition: 28
While mostly a centered main subject is not advised, in this case I think it works well. It adds drama to the photo. The lightness of the walkway and lighthouse is a good contrast against the dark rocks and stormy sky.

COLLECTING NECTAR - Kathy Buckard
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 80
Technique: 26 Impact: 25 Composition: 29
This is a stunning image, but I have to say that it fitting the leading line topic is a bit of a stretch.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse - Tom Buckard
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 79
Technique: 24 Impact: 24 Composition: 31
The wide angle of the rocks leading up to the lighthouse makes this shot quite dramatic. The fact that everything is in focus works well here.

Windswept - Julie S Johnson
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 75
Technique: 28 Impact: 26 Composition: 21
This image has some lovely shapes and patterns and the tack sharpness suits it well. My only issue is that there really isn't a strong focal point so my eye searches for a place to settle.

Good example of leading lines. A bit dark for my taste, but well composed and beautifully sharp.

DOWN THE HALL - Judy Boyd
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 93
Technique: 32 Impact: 32 Composition: 29
Cool! I like the strong lights, medium tones and darks in this image. And I think the composition is really good. Including the door handle in the foreground was an excellent choice.

This is such a bright and sunny image and that road just begs you to head for the beach. Good composition, would make a good travel poster.

I like this shot. The fact that it's centered works fine in this case and it certainly meets the topic requirements.

Technique: 14 Impact: 23 Composition: 24
The hiker really makes this shot and the composition is good. I'm not crazy about the color though, looks like it was shot at high noon. I think I would have darkened the image a little overall.

The Light from Within - Joan V Smith
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 94
Technique: 32 Impact: 31 Composition: 31
Really lovely light and color. The background is perfectly dark and does not compete with the main subject. The composition is just right and three is always an appealing number. The square format suits this image.

Technique: 33 Impact: 30 Composition: 30
Wow, what fun. Obviously this has been fiddled with, but I think the results are very appealing. The colors, textures and light at the end of the tunnel make it very painterly.

Like how animated this guy is, and I like how it's cropped. There's plenty of space on the left which saves the image looking cramped. All being tack sharp is good also.

FOXY - Kathy Buckard
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 85
Technique: 29 Impact: 27 Composition: 29
Oh I so love foxes, so this portrait really appeals to me. I like the focus on his eyes and think the black background works well here. The nose kind of fades into the background, but the eyes are the main focus, so it's okay with me.
