Delighted with my results from the Shrewsbury Exhibition, where I received nine acceptances (surprisingly, including two in the Landscape section) and two awards. Even more pleased with the score of 14 for my newest image “The Proposal” (below).
The couple was spotted in the Royal Mile at the Edinburgh Festival, promoting their show. Although they were holding bunches of leaflets, I managed to hide those from the shot and the young couple were happy to create this pose for me (hope nobody else got it!!!). The moorland background completed the scene. Many of my current batch of images have a sort of “Wuthering Heights” theme, influenced by living in Saddleworth perhaps.
I am giving a deconstruction of “The Proposal” in my talk “Building an Image”.
All acceptances are shown on my Exhibition Results page.
