Watching the 'Togs'. - From an E- Group meet on Skye in 2011, Duncan (Wanderer) and Roy (Roy Clarke) check out a 'new' lens while Woofmix (Paul) gets on with the job.

Re: Challenge 68 - Photographing the Photographers

It seems to be the norm that these challenges are difficult to judge because of the high standard of entries and this one is no exception. Thank you all who participated to give a wonderful and varied selection of photographs. My choices are as follows:-

1st Daveart An excellently planned and executed creative interpretation of the theme, with a touch of surrealism. I kept considering others as first choice but always came back to this. Congratulations Dave, the next challenge is over to you!

2nd pdk42 Paul's photograph of Damian McGillicuddy discussing an image with his model is really excellent, a top drawer effort and I'm sure that Damian would like a copy!

3rd Graham of Rainham Three photographers for the price of one as legend Barry Lategan shares an image with our very own Barr1e and Ann1e at the launch of the E-3. Another excellent entry!

Re: Challenge 68 - Photographing the Photographers

I would also like to comment on a few other entries, in no particular order of merit.

tomphotofx entered a wonderful picture of a closely packed group of photographers, seemingly jostling for position at a major event - although I suspect it might be the Sigma stand at a photography show. Regardless of where it was it conveyed to me the sense of a woman very much at the centre of what many men might consider to be a man's world! I like the splash of colour with the red Sigma logo.

gregles posted a sunset silhouette with outstanding colours - very graphic.

Graptolite also had an amazing silhouette of two distant figures. Although tiny in the frame they nevertheless dominate the image because of their classic Rule of Thirds positioning and perhaps even more so due to occupying the area of highest contrast within the scene. The only drawback in the context of this competition is that these figures are not readily identifiable as photographers but a fantastic picture nonetheless.

IanMacD also included a very distant figure in the form of his regular photography partner Steve (Stoates) on location at the Old Man of Storr on Skye with some gorgeous light. This time it was clear that the "model" was a photographer because of the tripod and his smallness serves to emphasise the massive scale of the landscape.

MargaretR is another photographer who has evidently been to Skye - you people do make me envious! On this occasion she very wisely sought refuge in the van from the only thing I don't miss about Skye - the midges! Nevertheless she still managed a striking, almost comical image of the group she was with competing for tripod space in a very small area.

greenguru managed to align three fellow photographers to create a dynamic image with a strong diagonal. I was also there (on a street walk in Colchester led by pro tog Rob Pugh and organised by Olympus), but I failed to spot this particular opportunity!

Hi Dave, it is a thoroughly deserved win; could you share with us where it was and how it was taken?

Well done Dave, a very worthy winner that certainly got my grey matter working!
Well done also to John for organising (thanks for the mention) and all the other entrants, some great images.
