Well that's very generous of you; thanks
Stephen, Andrew and myself have won the salons a number of times between us and although it's very flattering when it happens, it's also obvious that there are plenty of folk here with sufficient natural talent to beat us to the prizes. And it isn't as though we're not trying
to beat them, either...
People have expressed concern in the past that it's harder to acheive success in the salon without professional equipment or experience, but the evidence shows that anyone with a camera and a strong eye for composition can produce winning images, and that's a great thing. Hopefully the successes of our less experienced (but no less talented) members will inspire more people to take part in future salons.
