Despite the relatively small number of entries in this Entry Level Photographers competition, there were still some very strong images, and indeed all who entered should be proud of their work. Photography is a life-long learning process, and as long as you maintain the passion for your subject matter, the accumulated experience will inevitably result in ever-improving images.

Once again, the standard of entries in this competition has been impressive, to say the least. With the competition being relatively non-prescriptive this time, in some ways it has been even harder for me to judge than the previous ‘Small in the Landscape’.  I’ve made my selections on very much a personal level, and for me aesthetics takes precedence over the strictly technical aspects of an image.

It was an extremely difficult task judging the entries for the Small in the Landscape photo competition! There are many truly excellent entries, with so many talented, dedicated bird photographers within the group, and I would like to congratulate all who have taken part. One interesting observation is that so many of the strongest entries have featured waterbirds, which is possibly because successful bird photography lends itself to more (relatively) static subjects as may be found in waterways etc.
