Second page of pictures from Wednesday's group
Patricia was assessing Anne's picture, which she described as being in three sections, with the trees at the top then reflected in the puddle in the middle, and a foreground balancing the top third.
Anne herself chose this shot of a swimming pool, where the shallow water is wonderfully textured. The people at the rim of the pool add interest, but not being strongly coloured do not distract, and the sea forms a background.
Carina's pictures were assessed by Martin, who liked these droplets on a window pane. The reflections of houses in the drops were very sharp
Carina's own choice was the picture of a fountain in Rome. She was pleased with the composition and the way that the light was falling.
Ingrid's pictures were assessed by Carina, who thought this fountain in Malaga was spectactular. The speed at which the shot was taken made the spray show to best effect.
Ingrid herself chose this fountain in Alnwick. She thought the picture intriguing as the fountain looked like a net.
As Sonia shows her pictures to both groups, she has two assessments. Marthe in Weds group chose this picture because of the colours and the frame of tree branches and path.
Morag in Thurs group however chose this shot (taken the same day in Colinton Dell) because she thought the path leads your eye round to the bend (what's round the corner?) and the sodden wet leaves set the mood.
Sonia herself however liked this picture of two very wet boats in the Lake District. The boats almost fill the frame, and the scene is completed at the top with subtly coloured reflections.
Patricia and her assessor Bob were in agreement about this picture. A very wet dog - we felt he wasn't enjoying himself - very much the focus of the image, whose colour suggests general wetness. Other interest in the shot doesn't distract from the main subject.
