Harlow Photographic Society - 3rd place - Panel competition

The panel competition is for panels of either 3 or 4 images that sit together well as a collection.

The albatross were in deep water off Stewart Island which itself if off the south of the South Island, New Zealand. The snowy banks are those of the River Elbe in Germany.

My image of a 'Juvenile dark chanting goshawk' has just won me a FIAP gold medal in the nature section of Toronto CC international salon of photography. I was absolutely thrilled to get the award. To give an idea of the size of the salon, there were 608 photographers who took part from 59 countries, though not all would have entered nature.

34 International Exhibition acceptances this week!
09th October 2014
It's been quite amazing. I entered the Swansea Salon of Photography and the Danube Rtanji Circuit a couple of weeks ago and all of their results came out in the past few days. I got 7 acceptances from Swansea (from a possible 16) and 27 from the circuit of five salons in Danube Rtanji (from a possible 12 x 5 = 60). A circuit takes the same images which are seen and assessed by different sets of judges for each club in that circuit. Getting so many acceptances together definitely gives you a 'feel good factor'.

Here are all of the images that were accepted in Danube-Rtanji 2014, all but one were accepted in several salons in the circuit. 'Backstroke Break Through' and 'Red Limestone Tsingy' were accepted in all 5 salons of the circuit.
