I submitted the three photos below to the yearly online competition of the Dutch “Fotobond“. This is the national federation of photo clubs in Holland. The competition is for members only (I just became a member by joining Fotogroep Waalre) and closes at the end of November. I expect roughly 1000 competitors and thus 3000 submissions (max 3 submissions per person). The Fotobond has 6000 members.
This is the first time I participated in a Fotobond competition. Electronic submissions are also pretty new for the Fotobond: the organization has a long history of prints framed in mattes. The 10 best photos of the 2008 Photo Online competition are online here.
400 ISO, 200 mm, f/5.6, 1/350 s
ISO 400, 70 mm, f/4, 1/60 s
ISO 200, 24 mm, f/4, 1/30 s
In the third image I had to remove the foot of a tourist who just started to come into the picture. Interestingly the foot is reasonably visible, but people tend to overlook it.
