Below are my 5 entries for the Cambridge Camera Club Annual Digital Competition. The categories are the same each year;
This category includes formal and informal portraits, figure studies, groups and people in action.
The use of any technique to create an image that transcends the bounds of reality and so stimulates the mind of a receptive viewer.
Here there is complete freedom of imagination and technique to produce an image of any subject in such a way as to achieve an individual interpretation of reality. Landscapes would normally fall within this category.
A category for photographs that are a factual representation of any subject excluding Plants & Animals, giving detail and
maximum information on the subject specified in the title. High technical excellence is required in this category.
PLANTS & ANIMALS
Photographs must be accurate record shots of the living plant and animal, world giving detail and maximum information on the subject specified in the title. Photographs of mounted specimens, obviously set arrangements, or derivatives are ineligible. Factual, not cute, titles are required. The image must convey the truth of what the author saw at the time of taking. Whether produced in a conventional darkroom or via a computer, any manipulation of the image must be confined to the removal of minor blemishes or distractions. The final image must have been produced from a single negative, transparency or digital recording and must not be a combination of images. No section of a single image is to be duplicated and incorporated into the final image.
I have entered 2 for the Pictorial category. These are below.
Sunset Beach Walkers
I have also entered 2 for the People category. These are below.
Finally, just to be different, I entered this image for the Record category.
