    Like Pete I loved looking at these portraits and agree with you if you ask them to smile it looks false and unnatural. I’ve also noticed time and again when doing self portraits in paint, because your concentrating so much on getting the colour, tone and pose right the last thing you have on your mind is smiling. Sometimes I think its harder to get a successful portrait taken of someone you know, because you know them so well and are looking for their characteristics to come out. Looking at these images its so good to see a wonderful selection and a variety of choices.

    I can understand why you dodon’t the colour wash Wallace. The green foliage in the 1st image seems colike and too dark. In the second the whole image has a warmer feel to it and the foliage doesn’the imoose so much on the pholograph either.

    I prefer this pose, and would work well in any competition.

    I like the inverted cross, but am not too worried about not seeing all of her face.

    The Daffodils have a strong colour combination. While the second is more subtle.

    I think we’ve all been there John. Having been out enjoying photographing landscapes, I really need a decent wide angle lens. In days of film camera I had at least one good wide angle lens. So would appreciate any info on reasonable digital ones, as I’m going to the Photography show . Any ideas I’ll be at club on Thursday, or post ideas.

    I also like the first one and the ghostly figures as well. “The Ghosts of Christmas present!”

    I agree whole heartedly, otherwise we would never go into the kitchen. While I understand Johns (worry) take on this, I think the judges are adult enough not to lean towards images he/she has already seen. It would be a sad day indeed if we stopped entering competitions for fear of being damned if you do and damned if you don’t enter. I hope John will put his images in, a great image will always stand heads above others. I for one look forward to seeing a full quota entered from members.
