Hi Ian,

By way of defending Club Judges, if the Club has selected then from a local or Regional accredited list then they will be up to a particular standard - by that, I mean they should not show any great degree of individual bias (though it is human nature to like what one specialises In I guess) and will demonstrate a good grasp of photographic standards and skills etc. They usually tend to also have some RPS Accreditation as well. You shouldn't worry too much about this for the moment! I did think of trying to become one myself but the amount tf time needed to train; show you are of a 'standard' and then get out to Clubs that need you wasn't compatible with working for a living!

Good luck and best regards, Neil.


Thanks Neil. I'm not too worried about the judge. I have no great expectations just yet. I'm hoping to submit two or three pictures of a good standard. The judge's feedback is more important than winning (unlikely!). The club is affiliated to various regional bodies so I'm certain the judge will be impartial. I'm going to see if I can re-shoot #2 this afternoon. If not, I may look for something else to submit, or just go with #1 & #3. It's all good experience and the comments from fellow Dyxumers has already been very helpful and useful. Yes, back to work for me too tomorrow.

Ian

I've re-taken #2. It's very different to my original picture. Apart from the fact that one of the towers has been demolished and new flats being built on the site, the conditions and equipment have created a very different image. I'm not convinced the subject can be transformed into a good competition entry so I may not enter a picture of the rooftops.

Ian, I think if you crop from the bottom just above the windows of the nearest building and from the left just to the right of the two big air conditioning fans/condensors I think you'd be left with a pleasing picture.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Is the horizon straight in that remake? In my eyes, that tower leans a wee bit towards right.
I also wonder if it would be possible to get the clouds bit darker since the sky looks boringly white...
