Shortlisted For Competition Yay!

Posted by: Lenny Carter on 03/27/2013 - 6:27 PM

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.

Congratulations! That photo definitely deserves a spot in the showing. I like that a lot.

Do you need a title ?

"Nine Moor"

Thanks Andrew

Tony - Nice title - I'm not great at titles or descriptions, I have several more images to upload to this site but have yet to do titles/description and keywording as it drives me up the wall.

Think it's too late to change the title as that's the one they are going to use in the exhibition but could use it for the other version instead!

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.

I didn't win :-(

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 :-)

A wonderful experience to be displayed amongst the best.
This is another step along the way of taking you places. Congrats. all the same.

Thanks Janine - very true.
It's a nice confidence boost as well - the other entries were really good as well
