Club Competitions 2006/2007

I've been a member of Hertford and District Camera Club since 1972 [crikey, that's 35 years!]. Like most clubs we have a number of 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. These images were my offering for the four print competitions in the 2006/7 season, all but two of them from my Polish tour in Autumn 2006.

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...
