Pure Self Indulgence !
I am being shamelessly self-indulgent so forgive me that 😉 Many of you who have been following for a while will have seen all these before but some of my newer followers won’t have.
I joined a local Photography Club in the new year and had previously entered just one photo in a monthly competition which scored 18/20 not bad I thought for first attempt.
So I thought I’d have a bash at the end of season Annual Competition. . You had to enter 5 out of 6 categories.. I entered landscape (lake), Natural history (bee) Applied ( memorial wall) People ( festival Bubbles) and Pictorial ( Wimbledon Umpire.. ) I don’t have any Sport photos which was the other category.
There was 1 point between the top 4.. 2 equal 1sts on 93 points with the winner decided on countback and 2 equal 3rds on 92 points with places decided on countback..
I came 4th :D.. chuffed to bits because I’ve never entered such a thing before.
The Wimbledon Umpire photo won the pictorial class ( I was so pleased about this because it’s one of my personal favourites) with a 20/20 and the judge said it was a close run thing between my Festival Bubbles photo and another in the People category. She made mine 2nd with 19 because she felt the people were almost secondary to the bubbles and I think that is very fair comment..Both the memorial wall and the landscape got 18 and my lowest scoring was the bee.
I am well encouraged and very much enjoyed having my photos critiqued, as I learnt a great deal.
The blog is nothing without you and I love when you comment so if you’ve got anything to say, please do 😀
