General Comments for NZ Landscape & Faceless Portrait

NZ Landscape - Shelly Linehan

Landscapes are anything from straight colour or black and white images through to heavily manipulated images; they can be from the natural world or the urban environment.

 I don't believe we should limit a photograph based on how the landscape photograph was created, rather on what has been created - is it a good image or not?

Three totally different approaches resulted and the selected two from each group are shown.
