Who's the Better Photographer?

The Backstory ...

Off to Caerphilly Christmas market with the family. A good opportunity for some nice pictures I thought, but the weather (and light) were quite miserable so I didn't take many.

Except of Gwen my niece - 5 two weeks ago and don't you dare accuse her of being 4 !

So I took a picture and then she wanted to take one back.. She nailed it 1st time ...

So Who's the Better Photographer?

Gwen by Andy


Andy by Gwen


Regards
Andy

Nice poll. I agree with Mark about avoiding the model rating test though!

I agree, there's a striking resemblance ... Indeed Phil could almost be my second double encountered this month. I was under the delusion of being uniquely handsome ... oh well, it's my 82nd birthday today and I should have been aware of my withering good looks.

But I've wandered off topic so to answer Andy's question, I shall declare it a draw!

Re: Who's the Better Photographer?

Thanks Mark. Mine, not only the week before Xmas but also the longest day of the year down under, and for you it's the shortest. Just think, all you guys up there can know that summer is on it's way back to you.

I'd say good photography runs in the family.

Re: Who's the Better Photographer?

I found that hat on top of pen-y-fan in the snow. There was no one else even near the summit and i did not find an owner on the way down so being a Yorkshireman i saved money and started wearing it

It was a.bit nervy with £3k of camera kit in her hands

Regards
Andy
