Doors & Doorways Report - Comp 6

Doors and doorways, our theme for competition 6, and the last competition of the year, there was still time for the leader board in the photographer of the year to change. Not a usual theme, but voted in nonetheless by our members. There were not as many entries for this competition as we usually get but there was plenty of substance for our judge Jane Lines to mull over. I personally found lots of fun in stalking doors and found myself analyzing every door I saw for its impact as a shot.


There were, as always, some amazing shots.

Jane was a fair judge who gave details feedback on what she did or didn’t like on the night. I would not have liked to be in Jane's shoes, trying to choose between so many varied takes on doors and doorways. Some traditional and somewhere people had thought outside the box. Jane gave a great tip, she said when on location make sure you take lots of shots from different angles, this way you can choose when you get home and you have more time to play around etc.
