It's not really a competition in the normal sense, in fact the prize for winning is like the old joke about 2nd prize, a week in Slough, 1st prize 2 weeks in Slough (sorry Slough).
Slough was the other way round!

Doubly sorry Slough! And Maccabeej

However I enter the competitions on here to push myself as it's a fairly non-competitive environment - I go out to take a photo for the comp, however all my dealings with clubs have been very negative and almost destructive critique of photos, so I avoid them too!

Some Olympus stuff
