Of course this topic was chosen at a time before we had heard of covid-19 or there was any idea of a lock-down, so finding compositions that were both on topic and interesting was challenging to say the least. But here we are, with some very satisfactory pictures - congratulations all round.
Ruth chose Alister's Shower control handle. She thought it was a bit like going into space.
Alister himself thought his Fork Handles was a crisp picture, with nice colours.
Anne chose this from Ann, as she felt the lock leads your eyes to the handles. The use of light highlights the screw holes and the lock plate, giving a textured look.
Both Anne and her assessor Martin chose this "Knob and View". Martin said it was on topic but with added interest because of the contrast of the view behind. He also liked the fact that the knob lined up exactly with the grooves in the stonework.
Joe and Athol were in agreement over Athol's snowy handle. Athol felt it was whimsical - less boring than just a handle.
We were all agreed that this was a winner from Bob. He said it came out better than he expected. Les thought it a good picture with interesting, moody lighting.
Agreement again between Carina and Frances. Another successful picture, with a dark background and light highlights.
Ruth chose Irene's "Diva" because of the contrast of the shiny door knobs in a comforting warm pine colour with the fluffy texture of the vivid pink notice. She thought it made an intriguing story.
Fiona chose this from her own pictures because of the contrast between the living and the old wood.
Bob chose this one for its simplicity but thought it intriguing.
