Photo by Paul Riewerts

A photographic competition is hosted by the Central Illinois Camera Club Association among its member clubs twice each year. In May, three members of the Quad Cities Photography Club were among the recipients of “Best of Show” awards for their entries.

Paul Riewerts and Jay Brooks each were awarded “Best of Show” in the “Photo-Realistic” category of digital images. (Two awards were presented in this category because of the large number of entries.)

Paul’s photograph was titled Forest Stream 4U. Paul writes: “This photograph was taken on a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on June 23, 2014. This area of Big Creek was discovered after a several-mile hike upstream from the Big Creek campground. The section of the stream has so many shades of green, and the multiple mini-falls added great interest to the composition. The two reddish leaves had come from a nearby tree that appeared to be in ill health.

“A tripod-mounted Nikon D800 camera in aperture priority with a 24-to-70-millimeter f/2.8 lens was used. Exposure was 10 seconds at f/16, ISO 100, circular polarizing filter, and 24-millimeter focal length. The image was captured in both the raw and fine-JPEG file formats. The JPEG was used with no post-processing except for some slight cropping and file-size reduction.”
