Competition Images


The images below were my offerings for the print competitions in the 2006/07 season of Hertford and District Camera Club, where I've been a member for an unbelievable 35 years. Like most photo 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 as a result, both artistically and technically. Click the images for technical details and extended captions.

All but two of the images this year are 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...
