Okay, so the result is official – I placed 8th!
For this competition, 163 photographers entered with a total of 673 photographs. 3 of mine reached 70 points or more, thus counting for the overall place, which in 2013 was 8! Included here were 2 honorable mention (70 p and 74 p, and 1 bronze (83 p).
For the first time the jury were viewing digital files, and I am sure this was challenging both for jury and photographers…when I discussed with myself (and a selected few) which photos to enter, several were rejected because of digital noise/faults, so following this I will pay even more attention to my files in editing.
Congratulations to the winner, Jens Edgar Haugen, who won for the 4th year in a row! Outstanding!
Finally, here are my photographs
And, this one was rejected, getting 69 points (one point from honorable mention).
