I went to the Ansel Adams exhibition in Greenwich, London - at the Maritime Museum which was great as I love dramatic Black & White photography
I spotted that the group Thames21 (who help clean up the Thames and other activities) who had a photo meet up group - we went down to the muddy foreshore at low-tide and took some photos - they are also hosting their first photo competition so I entered 3 images... today I found out that I got shortlisted to have my image printed and shown at the Greenwich Maritime Museum for the whole of April.
The competition was just for the photo meet up group so I have no idea what the other entries are like but it's great to have a photo printed and shown at such a great venue - it's Ansel Adams themed as well... so double delight for me :-)
This is the image that will be shown.
here's a colour toned version which I rather like as well...
Thanks Mel - it was a quick shot too... I do like it when sometimes you don't 'see' the potential of a shot until you get home... yet other times you 'see' what you are taking and how it will come out.
Congrats and nice work! Before reading the description in the color version, it took me awhile to figure out what the image was, then it dawned on me. A bow shot of a boat with a draft marking on the hull. I'm a bit dense at times.
but out of 500+ entries I was shortlisted with 20 people!
after being displayed next to the Ansel Adams exhibition until the end of the month they then go on to be displayed for another month at a small gallery cafe... I will pop along then and leave some postcards with my details on... marketing :-)
