Lofoten Exhibition 2016 - Chairmans message
As leader of this 3rd Lofoten Exhibition it is a great pleasure for me to thank you all photo friends around the world again, for having done this special salon to a big success!
For us who have been planning and working in the committee there has been a lot of work, a lot of enjoyment and an amazing feeling to success and get so many participants from all over the world.
To make this salon a reality, I have had many talented employees with me and they have done a fantastic job. I am grateful and full of admiration for their efforts.
I must also comment the fantastic juries who conducted the evaluation of all images with great conscience.
The judging was held in stunning surroundings in the beautiful Lofoten peninsula. Closer described – in Sakrisøy near Reine in the western part of Lofoten.
We had some fantastic days together with our judges in still weather, fog and snowy winter evenings! Amazing!
Congratulations to you all for fantastic results and stunning photos!
The 4th Lofoten will be held in March 2017. Prepare your best photos! The themes will be like this year. Open color, open mono and Landscape/Seascape.
Our judges has also this year a comment to the pictures and the quality.
The best ones is very good. But there is a big gap down to the pics in the lower part of the scale.
It seems like many photographers does a very good job, but on some point there is something going wrong.
An often it is on the last processing. On the print to say it that way. On the preparing for screen if you like.
Remember the old workflow from the analog days – Shooting, darkroom, printing.
On the last stage the message from the judges is clear. “Less is better!” Don’t kill your pictures with sharpening and extra effects. Don’t add things into the picture to increase the moment. And if you do – do it properly! And the last word from the judges – You must remove visible dust from the camera sensor!!
Thanks all photo friends!
With best regards,
Olav-Inge Alfheim, EFIAP /g, ESFIAP, EsNSFF chairman
