CLINGING IVY

This particular image was taken during a Spring walk in one of our local woods.  I entered a print of it in an" Open" competition at the Club and it didn't come anywhere and then subsequently entered it again in another competition entitled "Evergreen" and it won that one which was very pleasing.

I like it a lot, Brian...the second Judge was clearly a sensitive and astute person.
Brian Walbey: He certainly was Ray as far as I'm concerned.
Well the photo certainly is very pleasing Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
The ivy works very well
Brian Walbey: One of those "part is better than the whole" sort of shots I think.

It just shows-to-go-ya how subjective photography is, Brian, right?! I happen to just love ivy! smile
Brian Walbey: It does surprise all the people in my Club how different judges say completely different things about our pictures when we show them more than once, good job we don't all like the same thing I suppose.

Win some lose some Brian smile
Brian Walbey: It's certainly nice to come up with a winner now and again.

Ivy - looks so delicate and attractive at this stage. Next thing you know it is all that is holding the tree up!
Brian Walbey: It's when you see Ivy all over houses that it becomes a problem. We had a garden wall covered in it and it took no end of work to get it all off.

Glad you won something for all your hard work Brian perhaps the titles of your work is the key.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, I thought this was quite an appropriate title.

Glad it won a prize in the end Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, and in Club I still have the opportunity to use it as a projected image so with luck it might win again.
I have ivy like this growing inside but outside it would not survive the winters.
Brian Walbey: I guess inside it is easier to keep it under control.
Good texture and rich colours - I like it Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
good crop like this
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, ne of those "part is better than the whole" sort of crops I think.

a fine close- up - but I had liked to see a branch or so on the right, to be honest.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, we'll have to beg to differ on the side branch though, it would mean a different composition which I feel might not work quite the same, but hey, isn't it good to discuss such things.
Well done for winning Brian. Nice display of greens for an evergreen competition
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Janet.

Lovely textures especially in the bark. Well done on yet another win. Was it the same judges? I used to quite like ivy.. until it took over the garden, the fence and shed. The fence was completely wrecked and the shed not much better!
Brian Walbey: It was a different judge Alan, and the first time was Open subject and the second, winning time, was Evergreen, indeed it was the nearest image to the subject. WE had an Ivy covered garden brick wall and it took ages to get it all off.
It seems to me that Ivy has become very evasive, seems to be everywhere now, have to keep removing it from the gardensmile
Brian Walbey: WE had an Ivy covered brick wall on one side of the garden, it took us a lot of work to get it all off a couple of years back.
It was worth the effort of entering it again Brian!
I really like this.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
It deserved to win, its the perfect classic shot. Lovely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, and in the competition, Evergreen, it was probably the nearest image to the subject.
Pleasing textures and colours Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred.
Always a good subject, Brian, and this is nicely done.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks Graeme.

Congratulations on your win. I like the light on the ivy but think it would be even better if the whole composition was moved just fractionally to the left so as to give a slightly bigger gap. It would just be more aesthetically pleasing if it wasn't so close to the edge of the picture.
Brian Walbey: I think you are right Ingrid, the bulgy bit at the top is right on the edge.
