I entered 25 photos into the Landscape Photographer Of The Year Competition run by Charlie Waite, but none were shortlisted. This was quite a disappointment at first, as I suppose every photographer thinks his pictures have merit, but having read other blogs on the subject, and seen other 'rejects', I'm less unhappy!!
Here are a few selected photos since my last post, just to prove I'm still trying!
|This is a copy of theWigan Casino sign, now hanging in the Grand Arcade inWigan, on the site of the original Casino.|
|A view across Windermere towards the Langdales from Waterhead on a stormy day.|
|'Orange Wildflowers', used my fixed 50mm on F1.8 to get the Bokeh, really like the effect, posted to a Bokeh group on Flickr and got hits!!|
|Water reflections with added Photoshop blur for effect.|
|This is called 'Rusted and Rotted', you can create beauty from any old thing!|
|'Tacking Round The Buoy' at Scotmans Flash, I loved the reflection on this one! Thanks to the Horizon Policeman for his guidance!|

|A black and white study called 'Under The Pier' taken at Southport. I only had my Iphone, just goes to show, you should always have your camera with you! Mind you, it didn't turn out too bad...|
