Imagining Lyme – Photos of Distinction Winners announced

Imagining Lyme – A Visual Exploration of Lyme’s Preserves
Photos of Distinction Winners announced

The Photos of Distinction for the 2nd session of Imagining Lyme–photographs that best use depth to express a mood or story–have been announced. The announcement was part of a Zoom presentation of inspirational landscapes by Caryn B. Davis, professional photographer.

Here is the list of winners with comments by the judges in italics.

Late September Forest Floor (Selden Cheek Preserve) by Rochelle Davis “This photograph is a unique view of the complexity of the forest floor that shows a deep sense of depth. What makes this magical is the vibrant green leaf in the center that draws our eye to a nest-like space where we rest before we march into the background with the whimsical little white mushrooms.

Gorgeous Greens (Chestnut Hill Preserve) by Diana Fiske – “This composition uses line to create a sense of depth. The warm brown path stands out in contrast with the green and invites us to enter the light space in the background. The various shades and patterns of green create a cool and refreshing space.

Water Bugs in the Water, (Selden Creek Preserve) by Lindsay Pettinicchi – “This is an abstract composition with a shallow sense of depth. The action takes place almost entirely on a flat plane. It invites one to explore the surface color and pattern. Yet it gives a sense of deeper depth and mystery in the reflection of the deep blue sky, the bugs that are slightly raised from the surface, and the hint of rocks barely visible under the surface of the water.

Imagining Lyme encourages amateur photographers to expand their visual awareness and highlight the beauty of our preserves by taking photographs prompted by inspiration from professional photographers, such as Caryn B. Davis and Joe Standart.

Keep taking photos and stay tuned for the next session. We look forward to seeing your inspired photos in the future.
