Jim Davies Photography wins another Landscape Gold award in “The Societies’ ” Monthly Image Competition for March 2013 (and Two Highly Commended Awards too)!

Having entered a some images this month into a few categories of The Societies monthly competitions I was delighted to hear I’ve received 3 awards for the March 2013 entries (a fantastic result for J B Davies Photography).  The standard of photography in the monthly competitions is consistently very high and to get any award is a great achievement. All the Gold awards go forward to the nomination judging for Photographer of the Year.  I was nominated for Landscape Photographer of the Year last year and it would be great to receive a further nomination but it’s always  an extremely strong category so I’ll wait and see.

My Landscapes have been very well received having now won two Golds and a Highly Commended in just the last 4 months!  The March 2013 Gold Award image is shown below and is an image I really enjoyed shooting on the way back from a journey to the Kingdom of Fife.  Stopping in North Queensferry I set up the tripod and composed the image of the Forth Road Bridge in the last of the evening light.

Also this month I received two Highly Commended awards for portrait images I’ve taken   recently.

In the Studio Portrait category (a very tough class in which to get any award), I received the Highly Commended award for this  colour portrait of Stephanie (who is a friend of my niece Katie).  I love being a little more creative with my studio portraiture and am delighted it was so well received.

And in the Monochrome category I received a Highly Commended award for the final image below – an image of the beautiful Charlene – shot recently at Chatelerhault in Hamilton.  I love shooting Black & White images – there’s just something emotive and real about a beautiful B&W image and I thought this image suited Charlene’s style.
