    I will when I get sorted with some lenses.

    But I won't win anything as I'm a bit old fashioned and like photos to be photos, the modern trend seems to have too much emphasis on editing suites, where the photos have been doctored too much.

    Thanks for pointing this out, I wondered why I was still getting the 36MP poll.

    I do belong to a club but never attend or enter competitions as they have absolutely no interest to me. This unfortunately limits my attendance to at most a third of meetings but as I can't see the point of competitions is just something I currently except. Being that 'art' is such a subjective thing I cannot see how it is possible to differentiate between entries without recourse to ridiculous artificial rules. If for the sake of argument there was a landscape competition comprising the works of Turner, Van Gogh, Monet and Constable who would win? In my club mounts form part of the judging and how the hell can an ability to mount a photograph have any bearing of the quality of that photograph. If a plant, animal or insect are depicted the Latin name of it must be given on the back! What rot, it has no bearing on the photograph at all. Competitions are to me somebody else telling me what I should like or photograph and are a complete waste of time. Photographic exhibitions I do enjoy and visit as many as I can allowing me to see a wide variety of photograph many of which although often well known would get nowhere in the competition world. End of rant....
