Color A On Topic

Carryout Dinner - Thomas E Hughes
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 87
Technique: 30 Impact: 30 Composition: 27
Wow the bird and the fish are surely frozen in motion. The pinky clouds made for a nice background as opposed to just a flat blue sky.

Snail kite with lunch - Bill Down
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 86
Technique: 30 Impact: 28 Composition: 28
Excellent example of the theme. I like that the eye and whatever he's carrying are in focus. And I like the out of focus background with the light spots. and the placement of the bird is good!

Big John - Julie S Johnson
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 85
Technique: 28 Impact: 29 Composition: 28
I think you nailed this one. The plane is super sharp and the jet stream (if that's what it's called) is well positioned in the image. The clouds help to make the background more interesting

GRACE - Steven Burgess
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 84
Technique: 30 Impact: 28 Composition: 26
Good example of the theme. The background is thrown out of focus and the bird is sharp as a tack. And the color is very rich.

Color B On Topic

I CAN FLY - Judy Boyd
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 88
Technique: 30 Impact: 32 Composition: 26
This definitely follows the theme. The dog is caught with all four paws off the ground, the image is super sharp and the flying fur emphasizes the dog's speed. It is a little centered for my taste, but I can forgive that in this case, as it is a very engaging image.

Technique: 30 Impact: 28 Composition: 29
Great shot, I'm surprised you didn't get run over! Fits the theme to a 'T' and great that the front runner is sharp.

Heron at La Chua - Judy A Vaughn
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 82
Technique: 28 Impact: 25 Composition: 29
Beautiful bird in flight. Not sure his eye is sharp, but in my opinion, it's sharp enough!

Stride for Stride - Joan C Dias
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 79
Technique: 30 Impact: 24 Composition: 25
You did a fine job of freezing the action. But I would have cropped out the telephone pole and wires. For some reason my eye goes right to it.

Jump, Jump! - Dorothy Finley
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 75
Technique: 30 Impact: 25 Composition: 20
Fun shot of the little girls at the beach. I'd like to see the whole of the reflection, but if it wasn't possible then I would have cropped the reflection altogether. I find only seeing part distracting,my eye wants to see the rest.

IN FLIGHT - Kathy Buckard
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 93
Technique: 31 Impact: 31 Composition: 31
Everything works here. The variation in tone, the sharpness and the fact that the bird is flying into the shot all add to a very clean frozen in action image.

Great blue heron - Bill Down
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 82
Technique: 29 Impact: 26 Composition: 27
Nice clean uncomplicated frozen in action bird. I like the drops in the water, they pop up the interest.

Lady Pole vaulter - Tom Buckard
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 78
Technique: 29 Impact: 23 Composition: 26
Certainly fits the topic. And the athlete is super sharp. I might have tried cropping the pole on the right out. I found it a bit distracting.

Osprey with dinner - Bill Down
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 77
Technique: 27 Impact: 26 Composition: 24
Nice that the bird's eyes are sharp and seem to be looking directly at the viewer. I might have cropped out some of the boring gray background though.

Rounding the Turn - Joan C Dias

Technique: 29 Impact: 28 Composition: 28
Good job of freezing the action. You definitely get the feel for the action and the tension of the racing horses.

Last Jump - Tom Murray
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 85
Technique: 29 Impact: 30 Composition: 26
This shot really catches your eye. It's frozen action at its most dramatic. All four hooves are off the ground. A shame about the busy background, but clearly that can't be helped, it's a horse show after all.

Hip Number 107 - Joan C Dias
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 80
Technique: 25 Impact: 29 Composition: 26
Great frozen action, especially with all four hooves off the ground. I wish the horse and rider were a bit lighter and there was not the slightly sepia tone though.

Nice job of freezing the action and developing a nice connection between the horse and the trainer.

Morning Flight - Carol A Hughes
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 76
Technique: 26 Impact: 23 Composition: 27
The one bird in flight really makes the image. If all the birds were static on the tree not only would it not fit the theme it wouldn't be as interesting.

First Freeze Motion - Bernie Groome
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 82
Technique: 28 Impact: 27 Composition: 27
Pretty color and very graphic. I like the texture of the background. Not sure what sort of programs were used to post process, but this looks almost more like a drawing than a photo.

Dancing Calla - Joan V Smith
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 91
Technique: 31 Impact: 29 Composition: 31
Lovely colors throughout. The fact that the lily is not tack sharp doesn't bother me because the whole photo has a sort of dreamy, ethereal feel to it. And making it vertical was a good choice

Indian Blanket - Jerry Wieland
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 91
Technique: 32 Impact: 30 Composition: 29
Beautiful. super sharp flower. I like the cropping, where the background is interesting, but out of focus enough that it doesn't fight with the main attraction.

I really like this image. It makes me thing of a mother and baby turtle having a chat. I wish the mother's shell was darkened little.

Gloriosa! - Kristin Schlegel
Judge: Ellen Clark Total Score: 86
Technique: 29 Impact: 27 Composition: 30
Very pretty image. I like that the flower is sharp and the leaves are out of focus. I also like the cropping, don't faint. I think in this case extra open space around the plant works mainly because of the soft focus and muted color.
