I have never yet met a camera club judge that has shown me one decent image of their own Keith !!

Aside from that there are certain issues they never take into consideration :

a) Some toggers have a disability or illness that prevents them from getting anything other than a bird on a stick !! Prefer to sit on a chair, because of health issues

b) Some toggers do not have the resources or never ending funds to travel far and wide for images that don't involve a " bird on a stick "

c) Some toggers, including myself are S**T scared of flying and prefer not to travel too far for anything other than a " bird on a stick "

Personally my aim with photography is more for detail in a subject, than that elusive perfect composition !!

Each to their own, the moaners will always moan and the judges will always have mediocre images on their hard drives............Well that's been in my experience mate WinkTongueSmile
