"An interesting construction and I am guessing the top part as a form of lampshade and then another layer to create the water reflection. The use of fire in the image adds another dimension."

"A clever way of saying a leaf upon a leaf. For me the image looks to have a lack of unity. The important part of the structure of a leaf is not coming across well and has a sense of confusion. Try a simpler version by using two leaves as a start to experiment."

"A good portrait with visual clues to suggest and clarify the musical instrument and the type of music being used. The girl’s concentration is well presented."

"A thoughtful attempt at remembering members who have died and left abandoned in a cemetery needing some repair. It challenges the idea of remembrance through the passage of time."

"A great constructed image. The allusion to science fantasy is well done. You have achieved a professional image with intensity of mood and an enigmatic expression. The use of birds with the small planet is an added touch."

"This is well thought out and goes to the idea of recognizing a subconscious mirror state of our selves. The robotic arm adds to the poignancy while the face expression suggests an acceptance of his condition."

"A lovely portrait of the lady. A quixotic look towards the observer with arms closed over the body, thus suggesting the barrier of safety. The addition of a flowery overlay has become a distraction rather than a complement. "

"An interesting construction seemingly happy but with undertones of drama. How do we explain the position of lines emanating from the left eye? Is she happy and gazes at the viewer to tease?"

"We have two icons of Australian life, the beach and the Opera House. Well thought out. The connection between the two suggests the ease with which we view the theatrical performance in both areas."

"A good way to change contrast in tones. The change can be read in different ways to suggest a preference. The almost mirror image is well used. The fashion statement with the skirt and the stiletto shoes tell us the need for ladies to be seen to be up to date and gaze no doubt to the male for attent"

"The model is beautifully rendered. The second layer is indistinct and does allow me to make a connection as to the combined meaning."

"The face expression gives a sense of foreboding with the man moving away into a forest. It reminds me of the poem “Tiger tiger burning bright in the forest of the night”. The mental thought here seems to suggest some danger."

"A wonderfully graphic image well done in black and white. The overall impression is of the monumentality of the Opera House especially in relation to the married couple"

"A lovely expansive view of the seascape. Nature’s power is evident in the clouds and the movement of the waves. Projecting a singular human being as the observer makes for a sobering thought as to how we stand. The addition of clouds in the lower part comes across as a boiling sea."

"Very well constructed image. The vantage point suggests having arrived from some long walk and suddenly being presented with the image of the bridge. The mood is sombre."

"The apparent speed of the car suggests with the faint impression of the boy that perhaps an accident has happened in the past. This maybe a way of dealing with grief."

"Looks like a view of Paris and a reflection of it but not the usual one. Placing it this way grabs the viewer’s attention and perhaps there is a hidden meaning which escapes me. The washed out background maybe a clue."

"A lovely interpretation of passage of time and the transition from one season to another. The leaf acts as chalice where memory is stored. "

"An old house made of stone with not much left except a chimney and part of a wall. The style of architecture is old as confirmed with the building material. There is a sadness as we view it coming from the desolation of the building. "

"The foreground shows a collection of dead tree branches which may have a connection with the house in the background. They may signify that land had to be cleared in order to have the land to produce some form of agriculture."

"We all have a fascination about antiquity. Seeing old architecture gives an insight into an older culture and how things change"

"Visiting a zoo is a pleasant experience and recording animal behaviour is a bonus. Attention to lighting and how it affects the subject and the background is a skill to practice."

"A street scene which captures the behaviour of groups of people. The lady by herself says something about relationship compared to the group on the left and the one in the background. The lady in the middle also exemplifies how and when we use contemporary technology. There is a disengagement with o"

"The image takes us on a spiritual journey to a place away from the daily noise of life. The stairs have an upward movement suggesting the old idea of heaven as up in the sky. The object of contemplation is the crucifixion added on are two candles in red signifying in Catholic piety the heart of Jesu"

"An interesting exploration of a street preserved as a dining area amid the preserved architecture. The background’s new architecture is a contrast and indicates the city is alive and is a context for a new society which values its heritage. "

"A beautiful recording of the fly and its meal. Wonderful contrast of colours. Sharp as it should be for this type of image."

"Monumental in its presence the hill becomes a statement of degradation. The removal of material nevertheless reveals a surprisingly beautiful image of colours. The lines downwards takes us to an unspoilt area and allows us to consider and contrast our values."

"A street scene allowing us to view and vicariously enjoy another culture. Speed is the order of the day and is well portrayed in the foreground."

"A shopping area with two people showing a time with not much activity. The space is well seen showing the kind of décor used to make being there a pleasant experience"

"At first glance there is a complexity of colours. Each colour has a function to attract a visitor -human and insect and other life form that may use this central core as food."

"A good record of a day in a wildlife park. The tiger is an endangered species and the vehicle indicates the attempt to protect the tiger. The preference would be to have an image without the vehicle thus suggesting the tiger in the wild."

"A good architecture image which exemplifies the use of glass to create light inside the rooms. The use of straight lines also points to contemporary(modern) architecture."

"The image shows us an old crane and its material construction refers to a time we now refer to as the industrialisation of the 19C. Iron was the new material. The rivets are a key to its age."

"The attention to detail is well done. The slide from top to bottom has become a metaphor for life. Green of new leaf life and the inevitable slide to decay. The bottom leaf hangs suspended as if it is in its last breath of life. Sad and lonely."

"An architectural image of ancient Greece, a place to experience and enjoy the wonders of antiquity. The people offer scale but be careful to take a view where their gaze complements the gaze of the camera."

"An impressive use of a pattern. The use of double exposure to construct this image commendable. The background shows the use of slow shutter zooming and then overlayed with the other layers. The swirling pattern is well done"

"The spider has been enlarged to give it a sense of monumentality. Its apparent size also gives a sense of threat and of danger. The background suggests a strange other world in which the spider is a part"

"An interesting view of an architectural construct and a sense of the challenge of shopping in a building that takes one in different directions with considerable visual details such as reflections. The feeling of constraint is palpable."

"A good view of a man made structure that dominates the water scene. The use of the child is good to give scale. The use of a wide angle lens exaggerates the perspective and in doing so creates the illusion of a sweeping movement to the other side."

"The image has been given the effect of a filter. The use of the filter has taken the image into a painterly style. The effect is to create an expressive impression of the scene and goes to the heart of memory, its joy of having been there."

"A very moody and sombre image. There is darkness in which the bike is immersed. The bike shows a cage for carrying shopping goods or other such matter. The image poses a question-why is there-has something happened?"
