    Went over the weekend - only 10 or so photos upstairs in the museum but it's a nice combination visit with the Fox Talbot materials, the NT mansion and the pubs in the village!

    Family all thought that the trout composite shot was cheating and my wife (who has dived a fair bit in the UK including Dorothea a good few years back) didn't see why the NDAC wrecked car had any merit at all as she's seen plenty of those!

    Not a bad morning out

    I went on Sunday morning, was a pity there were so few photos from the UPY there but the lack of space obviously restricted numbers. I agree, the exhibition, the Fox Talbot Museum, the abby and village did make for a nice morning out.

    I agree, but it did win me a nice prize

    I have to say that the subject has little merit, but the photo is great and well deserving a prize. Making such a good picture of such a mundane subject is the skill.

    Yes, I agree and did try to explain that to my other half If I tried to take that I'd have ended up with a blurred dark green smudge! Good to hear from the photographer on here - thanks mucus... TDF is great!
