I post this edition with a heavy sigh. As a judge in training myself, I must accept the verdict of the panel, but for my part, I still like these images. They were submitted as a portfolio of twelve for the PSNZ Associateship. They were unsuccessful.
The intention was to offer a set of images portraying various aspects of haven or shelter as offered by yachting marinas. The sequence is intended to progress from early morning to late night but with an underlying theme of stillness and shelter.
The panel said there was no flow, and the images were “too busy”. I suspect that a marina is always intrinsically busy, with masts, spars and rigging. And so I start looking for another theme for next year’s attempt.
