Re: First International Exhibition Acceptance

Thanks all.

Re: The That was a chunk of the rare English text I grabbed off the website. It's essentially saying that the exhibition was affiliated to the FIAP, PSA, CFE and ISF all of which are photographic federations, the two biggest being the PSA (Photographic Society of America) and FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique).

You may see people with letters after their names like EFIAP, MFIAP this signifies that they have been awarded merits by the respective society, much like the RPS in the UK (LRPS, ARPS etc)

It's all letters and stuff

Steve, just goes to prove that the cream always rises to the top. Well done.
The image looks like you employed some very interesting and effective post processing. Could you share with us your technique?

Well, i'm not convinced of that I consider myself extremely lucky to have a shot accepted in an international exhibition.

The post processing used on the shot was theOrton effect which essentially is an out of focus layer merged with an in focus one. Strangely this was the first shot that I used this on and though it has had some tweaking to bring the whites down a touch the shot is pretty much as it was the first time I processed it.

Looking at the shots that got awards I was suprised at the level of processing used on some of them and they were more like digital art than photography, that doesn't make me feel entirely comfortable for the future to be honest.

Thanks for everyones comments
