I had a image recently in the last 5 of a Nikon competition, but I felt it unfair, as it was down to people to vote for the image and not the people at Nikon or a panel of experts judging them. I was told to contact as many friends and family to vote for me, as were the other people in the competition. Obviously I did not have enough family and friends! But, I was very happy in getting my image into the final 5 of a National competition and this will spur me on to take better images in the future.

Yes - a lot of those competitions are really only designed to ascertain who has the most Facebook Friends. Nothing whatsoever to do with photo quality. And it is disappointing to find people like Nikon doing it. (But I did vote for your image!!)

Getting back to the original question, I simply would not shoot any subject that I found boring. But that does not mean that other folk will not find my images boring. I do try to build humour into a fair proportion of them but some folk (especially camera club competition judges) don't necessarily share my sense of humour. My "Sweet Pee" one of the flowers in the urinal really bombed with a judge!
