Partners' Picks of the Exhibit
Red Barn and Clouds

Red Barn and Clouds 
by Gianni Gugino


This is a classic composition of a scene of a red barn...something we all drive by at the speed limit and barely notice.


Gianni has made a photograph that has a good composition, with strong colors of green grass, a red barn and a warm-summer sky with billowing white clouds/


The white diamond on the barn sets off the barn's roof line, offering a strong counterpoint to the intense red color. It echoes the angle of the roof.


The tree on the right actually leans to the right and curves up into the clouds then the eye follows on to the wonderful clouds in the shape of curved lines leading back to the barn.

Winter Solitude by Scott Hooker

Winter's Solitude-

by Scott Hooker


There is a saying that "good things come in threes".  Scott's micro-landscape uses this idea of keeping things simple to produce a photograph with a strong graphical impact.


Winter is a time of minimal color, and the photo reinforces this.....so the viewer focuses on the three symmetrical trees and their relationship in the snow, devoid of any distracting objects.


It is interesting that the center tree is more dominant than the two trees on each side. This balances the photo....giving it an almost calming impact on the viewer.


Living in the Rochester area we can enjoy all four seasons, and this photograph reminds us about the beauty of a season when many of us "hunker down"  and don't get out to enjoy winter's beauty. 

Sea Waves by Anthony Paladino

Sea Waves
by Anthony Paladino


This is a masterful photograph in which Anthony displays a solid pyramid of a rock in the center of turbulent waters.


The contrast of the hardness of the rock and the flowing water (using a longer expose to blur the currents) along with what looks like a whirlpool makes for a dramatic contrast.


The limited color pallet reinforces the artistry of this photograph.


One cannot tell the scale of the rock and the water--it could be a small pebble or a giant pyramid... leaving much to the viewer’s imagination.


The viewer can almost hear the water rippling around the stone....making this a photograph that reinforces enjoying this visual experience for a long time.
