Competition night ...

... at Bolton Digital Photography club - theme "club days out". I entered 3 images, one of which, a swan image entitled "Odette's Curse" (Swan Lake), got through to the second round and then into the top 6. Can't believe I got 5th place! (woohoo) Obviously feeling dead chuffed, even more so as the judge was Tillman Kleinhans - someone I admire greatly.

"Photography is a means of communication, if the image 'speaks' to you then the photograph works.  The image is everything, how it was produced is of no consequence to how successful the image is.  In the words of the artist David Stanley ' image is complete until it reacts with the viewer'.  It is this reaction that decides how an image is perceived by an observer."

  1. I agree with the idea that photographs speak to us or not. Your swan speaks to me.
