“Competition forces you to push harder than you might normally, and it can bring you to great things." ~ Tim Walden
Image critiques are a great opportunity to receive constructive comments that can help to strengthen your competition images. Those with competition experience know well the value of a little tweak here and a little tweak there to bring a basically solid image around to a merit quality image.
For all who are new to competition, being a part of the discussions will increase your awareness of the many considerations that go into creating award winning images. And...keep in mind the elements that make great merit prints can carry over to all of our photography. You will come away with a wealth of information and inspiration to become involved in competition.
