The best images from members of the Quad Cities Photography Club are submitted and judged each year, and selections are made by outside judges for Image of the Year in three categories: nature, pictorial, and creative. Awards are presented to the first three places at the yearly banquet in June.
Marty Farwell captured the first-place nature image this year with her black-and-white photo of a milkweed pod. She writes of the making of her image: “I have always been intrigued by the intricacies of milkweed pods and their gossamer-like seeds. This image was captured in my studio using window light as my main light source. This was the best way to prevent the wind from moving the very delicate white hairs attached to the seeds, as well as to assure a background that was not distracting.” This Christmas-day 2014 image was taken with a Canon 7D camera and a very sharp Canon 100 macro lens, which brought out all the exceptional details that the milkweed exhibits. The manual settings were 4 seconds at f/11. The ISO was 100, and a tripod and cable release were used. “The color image was processed using Photoshop CS6. Because of the very clear details produced, I decided to change this image to a black-and-white using NIK’s Silver Effect Pro filter and was very pleased with the final effect.”
