On 1st November, I finally acquired the last of the accepted pictures I needed to apply for my EFIP/silver. These are the final seven images of 2017. Now the long wait until June 2018 until I can start entering Salons again in a bid for Gold!
From the top left, clockwise: The Cheat Unmasked, Shady Lady, Hidden Charms, Double Trouble, Painted Lady, Rebel Without a Cause and Reed Warbler in the Reeds.

I’ve had this picture for quite some time and, for some reason, have never entered it into the Salons. Flora had her first outing to Salon el Argentino and is now #42 of my required 50 pictures for EFIAP/silver.

The Cheat and Carmelita – strange bedfellows, but they represent numbers 40 and 41 in my EFIAP/b quest. Unusually for me, The Cheat has not been processed with textures but is a straight shot from a fisheye lens. Carmelita has had a minimal ‘touch-up’ but probably still represents a fairly straight-forward shot.

I’m presently getting a bank of new pictures ready for when I can begin competing for my EFIAP Silver level. None Shall Pass has been created from a studio shot of a brilliant young model, Emily, and a background from Southwell Workhouse. It was a productive day in the studio and there are, hopefully, a few more images in the pipeline.

18 acceptances from the 5th Greek Photographic Circuit, with The Sorceress continuing its run of awards with a Diploma 3; three new images got their first acceptances – The Seventh Veil, Great Heron Taking Off and Male Bearded Tit; and four fairly recent images also did well – Study in Red, Trinity, Medusa and Regrets. Happy with that, as they say.
