PPD Print of the Month


August 2017 PPD Print of the Month (POM)

Ralph Gurley of West Mifflin PA wins for the first time in over a year with his First Place Star Color Mean Machine.

Gary Potts, GMPSA, this month’s judge, gives us his reason: “I was immediately impressed with this image because of the unusual vantage point chosen by the maker, along with the superb technical excellence of the print. This is indeed an image with impact. Car shows typically challenge the photographer with glaring lights and reflections. Those are mitigated in this image, and the lines and curves flow freely without ‘hot spots’. The areas surrounding the vehicle are appropriately black. A bonus comes from the reddish headlights, so the entire presentation indeed speaks to the title Mean Machine”.
