Actually, I won the Intermediate Category for "Catching the Rays" but lost on the overall contest to a Beginners photo of two young boys playing conkers. That photo was brilliant, btw, and a worthy winner (hopefully I'll be able to put a link to that one at a later date - it really is something special and its very difficult for my description to do it justice).
The judge, himself, is a respected ex pro photographer and was a quite hard marker although he also gave very good advice on where a photo went wrong or could be improved. (My other photos scored 17, btw.) I definitely learned quite a bit from his comments.
At the moment I am rather overchuffed and on a high that such a critical judge was so complimentary about the photo and its many elements; most of which I have no idea how I achieved, if I was to be completely honest, although I could 'see' the shot there.
On a final note, the picture has been retained for display in the town's main shopping centre and for entry into an inter-club competition against a rival town's camera club.
