2019 Photographic Competition

I had quite a time trying to decide how to place these entries. It never gets easier as everyone has put in such excellent images.
I have come to a decision based on my little knowledge of sail racing and my more extensive knowledge of photography. I have taken into account things like the use of elements to frame activities or the part of an image. I have also considered horizon levels – difficult on a moving vessel. Plus good exposure.

These are my placings:
1. Cherbourg StVaast 07A (Well timed shot giving a fun content)[Shebeen]
2. Pursuit Race 01 [Matt Hitt]
Joint 3. Portland 27 [Matchmaker]
Joint 3. Round the Island (JN) 04 [Julie Nicholas]

Highly Commended: Portland 43A [Matchmaker] & Rod 12 [The Shed]
Commended: Yarmouth 38A [Matchmaker] & Phil on Destiny

I hope I have interpreted the rules correctly.
Enjoy your evening on the 30 November.

Best regards Brian
