A Dilemma – What Would You Choose?

Having joined my local Photographic Society, I have been inspired by the competition that exists between everyday folk. Each month there is some form of a competition, and I now see what people mean when they say that, “photography is very subjective”.  Fair to say that I am not doing very well, but hey its the taking part that counts.

At this end of this month the Society is putting on an exhibition in our local library in Rugby (UK), which will be on for about 2 weeks – if you’re local, please come along and see what you think.

The dilemma for me, was which images to choose that represented what I like taking.  Not easy as I have around 40,000 images in my library now – would you struggle too?

The final choice was based on the fact:-

  • I love macro, having bought the Canon 100mm L series –  a cracking piece of kit;
  • Sunsets are always going to receive a comment (good or bad);
  • A city skyscape at night, particularly in one of my very favourite cities – Budapest;
  • Travel – The English Lake District which never fails to inspires and Tenerife, with the infamous volcano Mt Teide;

Please take a look and I would also love to see links to any images that you feel would form part of your top 5

Canons 100mm L Macros - stunning image quality. A pleasure of a lens.

Tenerife – Mt Teide and its incredible volcanic formations. Stunning colours.

We all learn something new everyday and for me this is one of life’s most important assets.

Realising that there is lots to learn still, keeps my interest high (nearly said focused – but that too corny on a photographic topic!).

My moto – “FOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT.  CAPTURE THE GOOD TIMES.  DEVELOP FROM THE NEGATIVES
AND IF THINGS DON’T WORK OUT – TAKE ANOTHER SHOT!”

Whilst the digital age has meant that we can take multiple images and see them in real time, as opposed to eagerly awaiting the post man, I do wonder what was more skillful or exciting!

Would I go back to slides, no I like the freedom of digital.

Not quite as dramatic a set of images as those taken by some of our world traveled bloggers – but Happy Reading
