Congratulations To Anders Carlson PFRE Photographer For May

AndersCarlsonThe PFRE jury has voted Anders Carlson of Kona, HI the PFRE photographer for May. Anders’s winning photograph is on the right. Click on it for a full size image. Anders is a second time winner. He won last May when we had this same theme. One of the jurors made this comment about this photo:

Most of the photos in this months contest suffer from poor framing, poor lighting, and were composed too wide, which de-emphasizes the view, contrary to this month’s theme. This photo has nice, tight framing and is well-lit, although a little more ambient light inside might help fill in the shadows of the pendant lights in the kitchen (although if this was a single exposure that would overexpose the view). This photo stands out for composition and interior lighting, and the icing on the cake is the seamless, layered view, from the inside, to the patio, to the golf course, out to the ocean.

Here are the voting results:

  1. Anders Carlson – 35
  2. Lou Novick – 25
  3. Glenn Johnson – 23
  4. Aaron Flores – 15
  5. Charles Coleman – 15
  6. Don Miller – 8
  7. Christine Bickley – 5
  8. Luke Phillips – 4
  9. Brian Fussell – 4
  10. Dave Ruff – 3
  11. Nestor Trillo – 2
  12. Jim Manson – 1

I’ll be leaving all the photos in the PFRE Photographer of The Month flickr group for the rest of the month and putting the names on all of the photos. There’s a lot to be learned from these photos and the comments jurors and others have made on them. Thanks for everyone’s participation!
