Competition Folder Update - 4/5

STUDLAND SHORELINE

 Competition Theme: Probably Open when I use it in a serious competition.

It went before a judge in a non-serious competition who waffled on about the large area of green foreground and what he thought I'd done to it, nobody had a clue what he was talking about and I actually haven't done anything to it all! I think he was trying to be clever and give the impression he is a Photoshop master when in fact he is a ......... ! Well I can't say it here can I :)

Jolies couleurs pour ce paysage marin.

i can tell it's not photoshopped as could anyone who alters images in photoshop

it's quite stunning. nature always surpasses photoshop.
Brian Walbey: Upon reflection I should have challenged the judge as all this had was a crop, levels and a value 60 sharpen, but as he is a regular judge at my club I thought it better not to. I'm so pleased you like it.
This is such a beautiful image.... Clearly youldn't need to Photoshop it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. Upon reflection I should have challenged the judge as all this had was a crop, levels and a value 60 sharpen, but as he is a regular judge at my club I thought it better not to.

I like your comment, Brian. Perhaps judges don't expect a picture to be "natural" any more

Nice picture Brian, I would happily have taken this myself
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you've been to this very spot Chris so this is a view for you to look out for should you go there again.

This I like very much Brian. That green shore is quite fascinating and adds so much to the composition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, it is a lovely place to visit, Alan is very familiar with it.
A fine composition Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.

The green [seagrass or whatever] contributes much to this fine shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It was a bit slippery to walk over but there are some nice views just round the cliff on the right hand side.
Impressive, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.

I like this composition very much with "the large area of green" and the reflections of the blue sky in the water patches. Yes, nature always surpasses photoshop in my view!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, this was a lovely place with the tide being out.

A lovely image Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Anne.
Piles of sea lettuce can look as though it is a photoshopped green but I'd say it is an excellent photo. I like it very much.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, he was trying to be a bit more clever than he actually is.

Hahahah!!! Ive said it all before about judges. You had fine visibility, too; I can see the Needles.
Brian Walbey: He was trying to be a bit clever, he was much the same with some others pictures. Yes it was clear enough to see right across to the Needles.
this is a superb composition of the tide pools leading out to the sea Brian... the judge had no clue what the real world looks like....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. The judge is quite a nice guy but does tend to be a bit 'know-it-all' at times.
So I prefer not to comment, I would not like ....wink
Brian Walbey: After all these years of having my photos judged in camera clubs (47 years) I take very little notice of what judges say and rarely get upset. As long as I like my pictures and others seem to enjoy them that is all that matters to me these days.
