The images below are some of my entries for the Print and Projected Digital Image (PDI) competitions in the 2009/10 season of Hertford and District Camera Club, where I've been a member for more than 35 years. Like most photo clubs there are a number of competitions through the season – for colour and monochrome prints and for projected images – to enable us to show off our work, Hopefully our photography improves over time as a result, both artistically and technically. Click the images for technical details and extended captions.
For this year's competitions I'm continuing to draw on images taken on my five-week 'Grand Tour' in Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic in the autumn of 2008. They're supplemented by pictures of Vienna from a follow-up trip in June 2009, and even with some new photography from here in the UK! Most were taken on the Nikon D300, but at least three this year are from the compact Nikon CoolPix P5000 – technical details with the larger images.
