For the first time ever, one of my photographs has been successful in a competition. It is the first time I’ve ever entered any of my pictures into a competition and it was only my camera club’s monthly competition, but none the I was thrilled. The theme was religion and there were a lot of pictures of stained glass windows, mosaics and religious festivals that people had witnessed whilst on holiday.
My picture, which came 3rd out of about 50, was taken in our local church. The judge liked the atmosphere but said that he would have liked the verticals to be vertical! I have tried adjusting this in Elements but without too much success, I think I would need a larger margin to be able to crop to do this satisfactorily. It is my intention to have another go at this picture because I feel that it is over-exposed and I’d like to try to get more detail in the window. Maybe if I am able to set my tripod a little higher I the verticals will be more vertical too!
