The theme for for the new 2nd Wednesday Group was Panoramas. We had a smaller group with only 7 entries since this was our first meeting after splitting up into two groups. Most of the panos were landscape photo with one unique artistic exception – post office boxes. Third place was Doug Ayers’ post office boxes, which led to some interesting discussion since he took the shot with his cell phone. Second place was Tim Libassi’s sunrise photo of the moon over Jackson Lake. And the winner was Beth Holmes’ sunset shot over Jackson Lake.
The theme for the new 4th Wed Group was Negative Space. This topic was a great learning experience that showed that each of the peer mentors had a slightly different, or significantly different, “definition” for Negative Space. Tim Cully’s photo of Jackson Lake from an airplane led to a very educational discussion. Some of the peer mentors believed that a true negative space image needed to have only one focal point and that the boat and reflection of the mountains were distracting. Others thought that the boat added a leading line to the image and that the reflections were not distracting. It was a thoughtful and educational discussion. Pene Black’s cherries in snow and David Navratil’s elk and the sand dunes tied for 2nd place.
The theme for the October 2nd Wednesday Peer Mentor Group was WEATHER. We had a really diverse set of images for weather with Nancy Peters with an image a not-yet-stormy shot of the mountains. Second place was Beth Holmes image of elk in the middle of a snow storm. And third place was earned by Rosalis Estes with a beautiful semi-macro image of a frozen leaf.
The theme for the October 4th Wednesday Peer Mentor Group was also WEATHER. As is sometimes the case we has a close vote for the top three and as often the case the winner had a unique image. The winner was Ericka Trembley who submitted an abstract photo of the WEATHER – a frozen window. As is often the case, we had a tie for second place between Tim Cully and Becky Hawkins. Tim’s photo is an image of the mountains as the storm begins with rain starting to fall. Becky’s photo focuses on a beautiful orange/yellow sky above the mountains.
