Election rigging, unless you've seen all the other entries and judge our friend's snap to be the best.

 

I treat requests like this on photography forums just like this. I will go and look but I won't guarantee my vote, I may find something better.

 

However the rest of the people in the comp will be doing the same thing, so it does turn into a bit of a who's got the most mates contest.

Exactly. I'd prefer my work to be judged on its own merits really, however in a local competition with what was likely to be a relatively low entry and with a decent cash prize, it seems daft not to at least try to play the game.

Well made it through to the final 13, so thanks to anyone who did vote for me. The remaining 13 are now available to view online and vote for in round 2. I've linked to my entry below, however all others are available to view for comparison (just for Padge ;) )

Looks like you're through to the final six (?).  It's safe to say that it's not the most user friendly website in the world.  Anyway, I've emailed a vote for you mainly because I want a share of the £350 and to see your picture on the wall of the retirement home, and so have some of my band (with whom I am on tour).

You're right about the site. Cheers for the support. Sadly you won't be seeing the cash or the photo on the wall of your retirement home when you finally stop touring, with your band, as I didn't make first, or top 3 for the two other £100 prizes. Ho hum.

Can anyone recommend a decent quality printer for canvas printing at quite large sizes, and at a reasonable price?

just been watching "click" on bbc news and they showed this fantastic camera that allows you to focus after taking your shot.

Old technology to be fair, also allows you to set the depth of field after taking the shot

Cheers gents. Treated myself to a new lens, as macro and on/off camera flash are my two goals to teach myself a bit about next year. Christmas decorations seemed a good place to start.

I'm taking stock as well gaz

I like street photography and I'm thinking about my approach to it. I'd like to engage more with the people I photograph, and adopt more of a portraiture rather than a candid approach. I think it's more respectful, and more productive

I also want to do something with my portfolio of the local woods, some of which you've seen

Cretan budgie-smugglers use a lot more cloth than most...
