See you at the opening Chris ;)
Not too far from your home town is it?

Not too far from where I used to live either.

Had a look through and it seems that an exotic location and maybe a bit of orton works wonders with the judges. Unlike the DCM competition where it's just the foreign location :)

I'm trying to work out what will attract this year's judges' eyes, nearly there. :-\

At least the images offered for selection don't have to pass the scrutiny of a bunch of so called photographic experts with very little photographic nous as with the DCM POTY competition, before the real judges see them. ;)

Mind you Howard, there is the small matter of £10,000. Must get out and find some ponies having a load of chinese lads with multicoloured buckets throwing water over them with an anorexic girl looking on. :tup:

And don't forget to change your name to something with lots of consonants in it. Or lots of vowels. Just not an even mix.;)

Abers I remember getting one acceptance there quite a few years ago (and I still have the print) when I used to enter Salons, it was always a hard one to crack then as the quality of entries was always so high. :)

Paul,

Just a question out of interest, why do you not enter salons anymore?

I do it for two reasons, firstly to offer my work for assessment by what I usually consider to be  a group of accomplished photographers, and secondly the satisfaction if I get an acceptance. I said somewhere recently an acceptance in a salon or exhibition, whether international or national is worth a few 1000 comments on Flickr or any other site.  :tup:

Hi Abers,
  Two things really, ill health on and off has kept me away from my camera club for the last two years through which I entered many Salons ( I just rejoined), and having had to take early retirement because of that the cost of entering so many exhibitions is now prohibative to me.

I will proberly have to settle for just cherry picking a few to enter now I am back on the scene.

Ahh the past glory days of being accepted in the London Salon and the like are long gone for me now i think :)

Well done Alan. If you only got one accepted the other images must be incredibly outstanding.

Having followed through the link and looked at the quality of work submitted, all i can say Alan is- very well done.

I'll stick to going for an LRPS at this stage - small steps so to speak.
