Here are the votes for the Frimley jury:
First, 3 points, Christoph_d. This is a timeless shot that brings to my mind Rodchenko. There is an air of mystery about it too. I absolutely love it.
Second, 2 points, Octo. Again, I think that this is absolutely in the Barnack "vibe". This makes me think of Picasso, and the intimate family photos that were taken in the 1950s. There is a formality to it, and a modernism too.
Third, 1 point, Telewatt. This just makes me smile every time I see it. I have no idea of the age of the subject, but it speaks to me of sunny afternoons, perhaps a fete in a small village, and a lady who has mastered the TLR years ago and continues to use it in defiance of more modern "fashion".
I have said it before, but the standard in this competition just keeps going up. Really, really well interpreted, and a testament to how talented photographers can get the best out of this simple but elegant equipment. Voting just gets harder and harder, and I must give an honourable mention to Mobi - what an idea!
