Well, after much thought and deliberation I finally decided to place some images in this years Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. It’s very difficult to know, or preempt, what the judges will be looking for and looking at the previous years winners it seems there is a mixed bag.
So, I sat with my wife and agonised for some time which to enter and came up with a group of 5 images. Yes, I like them and so do many other people judging by the comments I have received on them, but what will the judges make of them?
Well, it’s my first ever photographic competition entry so I’m hoping for some beginners luck for starters. Now I’ve submitted them though I kind of feel that I’m way short of the mark, in a self doubting kind of way. Have I applied enough thought into which images to upload? Are they exposed and processed correctly? Do they stand out from the others? Are they just run-of-the-mill images? These are very difficult questions to answer. Anyway, it’s out of my hands now and into those of the judges. For now though, I’m treating this as a learning experience. If I get some recognition of my efforts then BONUS!! For me that’s a win!! Yes, it would be nice to be crowned ‘Landscape Photographer of the Year 2010’ but I know for sure that’s well our of my reach – maybe one day!!
