Thanks for your lovely critique Ruth and glad you like the photo . I'm quite enjoying the "Leaf Series" and find I am constantly on the lookout for the next colour. I don't really see the point in sandbagging . It's not like there are huge cash prizes on offer . I take the photo's because I enjoy it and if others like them as well then that's good.
Thanks Byron ,Judges move in mysterious ways!
Thankyou Ruth,Glad you like it.
I took the photo at Taronga Zoo in Sydney , so how about "Taronga Zoo Bird" . Starts with "T".
Which period is the blue hour ? Dusk or Dawn ?
EquusStorm: This was stunning . . . I really liked it. Not the usual 'pretty flower',
Thanks . Glad you liked it.
Thanks Ruth. Maybe related to the Moreton Bay Fig ??
Thank's for the comments RuthC.
I do think many of these photos are too generic and could have been taken in any month . One suggestion would be to change the closing date to near the end of the month in question and require photo capture date to be in the month. That will help ensure relevance.Just an idea.
