Competition Images


I've been a member of Hertford and District Camera Club since 1972. Like most clubs we hold print and slide competitions through the season, with the aim of showing off our work and receiving helpful criticism from visiting judges. Hopefully our photography improves over time, both artistically and technically. The images below were my offering for the four print competi­tions in the 2005/06 season; just for a change I also entered monochrome this year, all from digital originals. Click the images for technical details and extended captions.

After all these years I'm fairly confident about my photography – though by no means complacent – but the comps are a good incentive to produce new prints, and there's always a buzz on competi­tion nights, with the hope that the judge will like the pics or will at least react sensibly. A good mark is nice, a good comment is better. Sometimes they'll produce valid criticism, and I realize too late in my seat at the back that they're absolutely right. Other times they miss the point altogether...
