Dianne was awarded Digital Projected Image of the Night for her image ‘Ever Alert Between Catches’.

Her comments are: The photograph was taken on a bleak and overcast Winter morning just before 7am last June, when the light was slightly improving after an early morning sunrise shoot off Home Beach, Stradbroke Island. I enjoy photographing people and their animals on early morning walks, especially capturing the variety of dogs of all shapes and sizes cavorting on the beach and in the shallows. I had luckily just changed to my Sigma Sports 150-600mm  F5-6.3 DG  OS HSM lens, using a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, in order to capture this image up close.

The camera settings were: Exposure 1/500 sec at f/6.3, focal length 600mm, ISO 1600. The image was shot in Manual using spot metering. The original image was a lot darker, however with minimal editing using Light room, I was able to add more light and impact to the subject; I then edited the image in Topaz AI denoise, which I use for a lot of my low light, higher ISO images.
