Another good night at Camera Club

Last night at Camera Club it was the judging for the fourth merit slide competition, the last one of the season. Last time I entered I did quite well and posted here about it.

This time I entered four slides in total, the maximum allowed. Two of them unfortuantely did not make it through to the shortlisted 7. These two were:



and



The first nearly made it as the judge commented on it being a good 'story telling' image which was well handled and composed. He did criticise the slight blow out on the Tesco bag (fixed in the image above). The second kind of stumped him a little (which was my nefarious intention) but again he praised the composition and also commented on the nice textures.

The two that made it through to the final 7 (out of about 30) were:



and



On the first one the judge commented how nice the composition was and that he doesn't see many Church 'interior' shots and he liked the way the entire image led toward the purple cloth and the bright window at the end of the Church, he also liked the arches. This was given a Highly Commended (4th)

The Ironbridge shot I have always been pleased with and on the first run through of the entries I felt that it might do well, especially from the reaction of those attending when it was first shown. The judge said that it was one of the best pictures of the Ironbridge he had seen and he raved about the smoke coming out of the chimney in the top left as well as the reflections in the mirror like water. This shot was placed 1st.

Again, I am absolutely chuffed with how the images did and now, I have entered two and won two. My point accrued should place me about 5th overall in the competiton and considering that I have only partaken in 50% of the competition I am well pleased.

These have all been entered in the intermediate section, link to results here and though I have done well, seeing some of the stuff that was entered in the advanced section I realise that though I am probably able to enter in that section my images just couldn't compete at that level at the moment. So intermediate I shall stay until they tell me otherwise.

I would advise anyone to give their local camera club a go, they can be a little cliquey but you get so much out of them from seeing all these different images and getting one to one feedback it is well worth it.

Re: Another good night at Camera Club

Well done Steve

You are certainly making your mark in the club. I think the judge got it just about right. I remember the 'end of the line' in the forums, and I think it (and the others in that series) would do OK in the right environment, and as you say, this comp was not the right environment. Maybe if you fed the judge a few beers first!

Also, as I remember, the Iron Bridge got a lot of favourable comments and suggestions, so it is nice to know that our members seem to be on the right lines too. Your feedback form the judge is really useful, as It will help the members who gave their opinions to see where they are on the smae wavelength as the judges, or nort, as the case may be.

Keep up the good work, and once again - Very well done.

Indeed, I might try that.

Thats the funny thing about photography and gaining 'acceptance' though. I love that 'End Of The Line' image and when it was shown it raised a few eyebrows and a few laughs on the announcement of the title. I am sure that some people go out of their way to adopt a style that they think will be acceptable to the judges but I am of the opinion that photography is a personal thing and if you produce images that you like yourself then that is far more important that getting approval from other quarters (though we all do it to some degree)

What amazed me was when the judge suggested that the shot could have been improved by using a different colour line, maybe yellow I have now decided to find a place where some double yellow lines end and title it 'End Of The Line 2'

Thanks for the other comments

Top shot of Ironbridge Steve, only ever seen it when I've been there in the day and you've captured a cracker. Well done.
