‘Rose’ by Joanne Beattie

Judge Peter Cheetham HonPAGB awarded Joanne Beattie’s ‘Rose’ 18 marks in the General section of our very first Lockdown league Competition. Unfortunately, due to internet problems, Peter was unable to join our meeting and he forwarded his marks the next day. However, this gave us the opportunity for us to discuss the entries amongst our members. John pointed how sharp this wonderful close-up looked. It’s a simple but very effective. Joanne revealed that it was taken with her camera phone which makes it even more impressive. She told us that she’s changed the background as she thought the flower stood out well with the black background. She took the photo because she liked the way the light fell on it as it shows all the texture. For one of her first entries it gives her an excellent start to entering our competitions. Well done Joanne!
