It was a bit of a mixed bag for me in the first quarter of the 2011 IPPA awards. Some results I was a bit disappointed with, for others I was pleasantly surprised. These competitions are a good gauge as to how & if you are developing as a photographer. It also is a showcase for the very high standards of photographers throughout the IPPA in all manner of photography. This time I entered 11 images, and, I cant really complain as I was awarded 4 gold and 7 silver awards. Considering the fact that last year (my first in IPPA competition) I achieved 4 golds in total I should be delighted, but, in a perverse kind of way, the fact that I was a bit disappointed is a good sign. Good is not good enough anymore.
I have uploaded the images below.
