After many years of threatening to, I have fianlly joined my local camera club – – a really friendly group with a good mix of skills and styles.
Initially I was not going to enter any competitions in my first year, I thought I would get to know a few people and weigh up the opposition too ! However, I seem to have the bug and have enetered 4 images in my first – the third monthly open competition. This was judged last night by Paul Williamson and I came out with a commended’ and 2 ‘highly commended’which was really pleasing as he was a fairly tough judge who put a lot of effort into his task. The images entered are shown below.
