I lived in Britain for a lot of years and enjoyed it greatly.  The
milk bottles are, as you suggest, reminiscent of another era both in
Britain and the US.  This could be a sub-category in a contest.
Members must have a lot of old photos which are pleading to be scanned.

I liked the Reading Station shot as an abstract composition,
particularly with that pink band and the small figure in shadow. That
one seems to be the sleeper - one that offers things to keep coming
back to to explore. I also like the Riders. I'm less fond of the
bucolic scenics, though there's a nice light in the River Wye photo.

I had to vote for River Wye. I would buy that one and put it on my
wall and look at it all the time.

But the milk bottle photo is great, too.

The Wye may be the easy choice, but it was the one I made too.

There are parts of the U.S. where milk bottles are coming back.
Recycling as well as nostalgia, and I think that the EU is ahead of
us in recycling.  Those DO look like modern caps.

I agree.  Maybe we could make a topic out of it and see what people come up with.

Calling all Kai's..........  ;-)

Wacom (the company behind the excellent Graphire, Intuos and

So much for me on that one!

Coyote: I just saw {Photography.36.12} for the first time...for some reason. Thanks. Off to check it out now.

Yikes:

"Only one photo per contestant will be considered in the final round of judging"

How to choose?!

{Photography.36.16}: Coyote {coyote} Wed, 26 Nov 2003 10:28:29 CST (1 line)

No kidding! You have soooooo many *great* ones.

{Photography.36.17}: Kai Hagen {kai} Wed, 26 Nov 2003 10:53:04 CST (HTML)

:-)

Well...they reserve the right to use the winning image for whatever commercial purposes. So...might be good to consider just how they would do that, and what sort of image might be better suited for that? Who knows?

--------

{Photography.36.18}: Which Hazel? {hazel2} Wed, 26 Nov 2003 15:26:03 CST (4 lines)

Yeah, "compelling in all respects" compels me to wonder "compelling
in what context?!" The winner gets the rights to his or her image
purchased for stock photography, so I guess I also wonder what kinds
of images people look for in stock photos.

I enter competitions in two places and both give good
critiques too:
http://www.worth1000.com (which also has good text contests)
and
http:///www.digitalphotocontest.com

You got an extra slash in there, Scott. Try this:

{Photography.36.21}: Scott Butki {scoop} Fri, 28 Nov 2003 09:39:00 CST (3 lines)

Thanks, Suzanne. Do you or anyone else here enter these
other competitions?
I think you and Kai and Diane and others would do quite well.

--------

{Photography.36.22}: Suzanne Griffith {sggriffith} Fri, 28 Nov 2003 11:43:56 CST (1 line)

Thanks! I hadn't thought about it. I just bookmarked the site :-)

--------

{Photography.36.23}: Which Hazel? {hazel2} Fri, 28 Nov 2003 13:26:26 CST (4 lines)

I've never entered any photo competitions (although I've entered many
competitions in other media). I may think about this one, just because
I know I'd focus on photography in a different way if I was taking it
seriously enough to enter something.

{Photography.36.24}: Scott Butki {scoop} Fri, 28 Nov 2003 14:26:20 CST (8 lines)

What I like about the worth1000 one is they will suggest a theme and
you have like five days to go find a photo that fits the theme.
i've also gotten some good stories sparked by a text contest.
they have a photoshop one too.

the other one has standing categories but looking at other pictures -
and getting volunteer critiques when i choose - has helped me learn
a lot.

{Photography.36.25}: Scott Butki {scoop} Tue, 02 Dec 2003 10:39:26 CST (20 lines)

this just in and i'm busting with pride:


 Hey sbutki,

 Congratulations! Your entry, water drops on plastic, was selected as
a
 Jury's pick (amongst the cream of the crop) in Contest 1936.
 This is really just a pat on the back since this award is independent
of
 the contests and any monetary reward,
 but that doesn't mean you shouldn't feel proud of yourself. Heck,
give
 yourself a hug. Job well done!

 To see your shiny new gold star go to your stats page at
 http://www.worth1000.com/stories/stats.asp?uid=39555

 Bling, Bling!
 -Worth1000 juror Quadrajet
