As the judge, I set my own judging criteria: in looking for a winner, I’m looking for the image that most impresses me overall, not necessarily the plant that I’d most like to have donated (though open to offers…).
I ended with a shortlist of four:
The first of Jim’s several eye catching Thelocactus bicolor photos, showing beautifully the 2 coloured flower which gives the plant its name.
El tel’s Aloe flower, despite his ‘tricolor’query, and his Matucana flower; both impressed for crispness of focus and for lighting effect.
Eve’s Adromischus, capturing the leaf colouring. With a different background, this may well have made first place.
It wasn’t easy deciding between them, but in the end, I’ve gone for Jim’s Thelocactus bicolor as this month’s winner. So over to you, Jim, for the May competition.
