Club Competitions 2011/2012

These images are some of my entries for the Print and the Projected Digital Image competitions in the 2011/12 season of Hertford and District Camera Club. Like most other UK photo clubs we have a number of competitions through the season – for colour and mono­chrome prints, and now for projected digital images rather than colour slides – to enable us to show off our work while receiving helpful criticism from visiting ‘judges’. Here, this page is a handy way of publishing my recent photos. Use the links on the right to see the entries in other seasons.

Many of the images are from a 2011 visit to Germany – to Berlin and nearby cities – more details of which are in my Grand Tour blog. Inevitably the images from the trip tend to be travel pictures, documenting the places themselves, rather than ‘arty’ photos that can be put on display or used in competitions. But visiting a new location always provides a stimulus for various types photography, and I hope I’ve managed to pull out some unusual views and make something of them.

In particular I spent time at the huge and controversial Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, where I found it possible – and perhaps necessary – to separate the shapes of the blocks from the buzz of modern life going on around them; more thoughts with the larger images. All photos taken on the Nikon D300, mostly using the Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom; technical details of each with the larger images (click on the thumbnails to see them).
