I entered this image into another competition – this time a round of the United Photographic Postfolios group I belong to. It’s a monochrome photograph of some old steps up the dunes from the beach at Silloth, which have clearly seen better days! (It’s a digital image, converted to monochrome using Photoshop and Silver Efex Pro). I was delighted to discover it had been awarded the Gold Label, with six of the eight other members awarding it top marks!
As a result, it will be exhibited later this year at the Annual meeting of the UPP of Great Britain. (Looking back over my records, I’ve had at least one image awarded a Gold each year except the first year I’ve been a member of this group.)
This particular image has a mixed exhibition record, scoring highly in some exhibitions (such as the Bristol International Salon of Photography) , while being rejected without a score in others.
