photoblog image Ambleside Church 3/7

Ambleside Church 3/7

A close-up view of the altar end of the Chancel and the East Window in St.Mary’s church at Ambleside.

 

The main annual exhibition in my area is the one in early May promoted by the Leicester and Leicestershire Photographic Society. As usual I sent a few entries in together with a few of my other club friends and we had some acceptances among us including a Commended for this one of mine, and one of the others won a major trohy with a print which you can see here . I must admit to feeling a bit chuffed.

Your Bunch of Five is a cracking image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.
BRAVO to you, Brian, for your "Commended." You have every right to be chuffed.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. The sad thing is that out of 27 people in my camera club, many of whom are very good photographers, only four of us could be bothered to make the effort to enter some prints or images and we all had images accepted with one guy winning a major trophy on the other link I included.
We are homing in.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chad.
Well done Brian a much deserved commended

I remember to have seen this commended photo - you can be very proud of it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, it is a favourite image of mine and I really enjoyed doing it, it was inspired by some of the beautiful images Anne puts together and shows us.

The Eddy Hall one certainly deserves a first. What a fabulous shot!

The stained glass window is rather splendid.

Well done on your competition achievements; a last a judge who knows what they are doing!
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a very fine window. I have been fortunate to have had images selected for this particular exhibition before.

I have a feeling that a close-up of that altar art piece, may make a great picture.

On to the competition - first of all, congrats on the commendation. Next, is that Shepshed colleague of yours. Excellent shot. What I noticed is that all three prizes plus HC's are all extremely sharp pictures. As is, of course, is your picture. Would that be a specific judge's preference or some kind of universal standard? I mean soft focus, etc also produce excellent pictures.
Brian Walbey: I am showing a close-up of the altar on Friday. Thanks for your other comment, I think in that particular competition it just happened that the winning entries were sharp, we do get soft focus images entered, but judges usually do pick up whether an image deliberately taken like that or whether it is out of focus accidentaly. If you have time and feel inclined to take a look there is a whole gallery of winning images from my clubs competitions here https://www.flickr.com/photos/shepshedcameraclub/sets/

Congratulations with your commendations, Brian. I think you did a great job. You can be very proud of them.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid.
I like the light that illuminates the windows, from detachment to colors
Brian Walbey: I was fortunate that it wasn't a really bright sunny day so the light was a bit subdued which helped a bit.

I can imagine how chuffed you were with the picture at "this one"> Regret I cannot get any pictures of yours at "see here"!
