It was great to attend the Flickr Focus Awards (http://www.flickr.com/groups/northernbeachesnsw/discuss/72157635103344041/) on Saturday night and it was a much fun as last year! Always good to put faces to the names and catch with people.
It's the only 'competition' that I bother to enter, even though it does require payment – it's a good cause and a great community worth being part of and worth supporting. What i really enjoy is seeing all the other images up there and also the choices and grades the judges give, there is no doubt there is a emphasis on creativity and impact and I for one have learnt alot from see the images. There is more info here http://focusaward.betterphotography.com/judges.php about the judges and their experience. I gotta say to, tht was an impressive feat judging all those images, excellent work.
gave a great talk about his recent trip and also imparted some great experience and knowledge with some good humour added in – nice one dude.
Congrads to the tog of the year (Olga) and also some of the crew that are on gplus,
nailed a nice dragonfly image which took out the macro category, great stuff and well deserved.
It was also great to see images there from and
I am happy with my results given the high standard of images and also the large number of images (in excess of 500)
I will be there next year for sure.
