photoblog image From The Competition Folder 2/28

From The Competition Folder 2/28

A series of images I have used in my Camera Club competitions that I have not previously posted.

LOOKING ON

I took this at Crich Tramway Museum last year when this tram developed some sort of problem just as it was about to depart.  As usual the boss man doesn't intend getting his hands dirty.  The Judge felt the bar across the tram stopped the viewer getting into the picture!

The judge doesn't appreciate that the bar emphasises the action in my view.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your support Graeme.

I agree with Graeme here, Brian. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Anyes.
You can tell the Judge that the bar makes the photo Brian... does he expect the seats to remain upright on their owngrin....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Sadly each new generation of judges just repeats such comments ad infinitum because they heard judges say such things before they became judges themselves.

Bar separates the boss from the workers...I like it, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ray. Your slideshow from India is superb, you were very perceptive and sensitive with your photography, it would easily grace the pages of National Geographic magazine.
Well I can't believe you didn't just dismantle the thing for the sake of a less obstructed view! What does he know - i like it!!
Brian Walbey: I do have to sit and bite my tongue sometimes Elizabeth.
You should have taken the Judge to the Bar nextdoor. Nonsense Brian, The image is great.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Juan.

Sounds like a standard CC response - you could just as easily say the bar ties the picture together. Talking of bars, lets go in the Red Lion ;o)
Brian Walbey: Too true Mike, sadly it is almost a standard judges comment for anything like this, and closed gates and doors, etc., I have to bite my tongue sometimes.
We live in the past as well as the present Brian.
Brian Walbey: Most judges live in the past Chad.
What does the judge know? LOL
Brian Walbey: In some cases not much Mary, they just repeat what they have heard other judges say.
That red is stunning
Brian Walbey: I thought that when I took it Chantal.
I like it Brian, the boss looks pleased.......with those doing the work grin
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin. He didn't even attempt to get his own hands dirty.
Doesn't stop me
Brian Walbey: Nor me Bill, I just got on round the other side smile

Looks fine to me, Brian - in fact it makes a good "him" and "them" picture
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Lisl.

This looks like hard men's work and great honorary enthusism for the tramway -fine solid benches and a wonderful colour! A fine snap shot you don't see often!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Philine.
This works really well Brian, excellent composition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred.
I find that the bar is a great separation between two different worlds: The worker and the boss.
Very nice capture indeed Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes I can see your point Richard. Judges do tend to be a bit governed by "the rules" which they no doubt only heard about from other judges anyway.
I fear that club judges are somewhat divorced from reality, Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Many are Tom, sadly only a few ever really look at an image as an image and not a moment in time, if you know what I mean.

'That contact lens is definitely here somewhere'

Great image and so strong.
Brian Walbey: Lol. It looks a bit like that doesn't it. Thanks for the comment Richard.
