I entered the nature section of the Perth Royal Show Photography competition - first time entering something of this size. Bit puzzled about interpreting the results. Can someone who has done this before, enlighten me a little.
The nature level has a
Acceptance level of 12
legend says M = merit, A = Acceptance, 1,2,3 = Placing, Maximum Possible Score = 15
My results were:
Splendid Fairy Wren photo, I got 14 and A (guessing accepted for display)
Splendid beauty, I got 13 with a M, which is a merit (is this a merit for trying but not getting acceptance for display?)
Osprey photo, I got 13 and M, which is a merit (is this a merit for trying but not getting acceptance for display?)
My Sacred Kingfisher missed out..... got 11
It was a good experience for me, on reflection looking back, I felt I could have done better in my selecting of photos to enter - I struggle with that because, its not about what I like, but if the photo is good enough.
