Exhibition awards

Last week was my camera club’s annual exhibition. I was lucky enough to receive several awards and, at the risk of blowing my own trumpet, thought I would record the successful images here. A better-edited version (my internet is down and this is the only version I have on my iPad) of the top image, Sprinkler Fun, won Best Projected Digital Image (PDI) in the exhibition and was used as the image on the Exhibition flyer.

The judge was very encouraging and since the awards presentation on Friday I have begun to think a little more seriously about the possibility of trying for a Royal Photographic Society Associateship. But first, I would like to start making better prints. Until now I have been relying on Redbubble. Their matted prints are good, and nicely mounted. However, I think the time has come to do it myself. If any of you have any tips or printer-recommendations, I’d love to hear them.
