PDI Competition – Judge Alan Harris
2 x Open, 1 x Theme. The theme is Looking Up or Looking Down. We expect themed images to clearly show that the camera had been placed looking directly up at, or down onto the subject. We do not want to see images with a straight-on or side-on viewpoint.For the Open category we would like to see, (but it is not compulsory) images that you might not feel comfortable entering into our usual WPF judged competitions, such as experimental work, ICM, under/over exposure or abstract. Alan Harris will be judging and scoring this competition and will judge each image on its own merits and not against one another.
