I May be alone but is anyone else dissapointed in the judges selections for this year’s calendar?
Wot calendar? Wot judges?
First time I've seen them. I guess they fit the brief for a BBc calendar.
Didn't know there was one.
I gave up on that about 10 years ago!
I never seem to get wind of the opening date. I only ever hear about it when it's finished!
I saw it last night, and they seem to fit the bill - except that I don't know what the original brief was.
The one that I now can't stand is the big one hosted by the Natural History Museum (Wildlife Photography of the Year), and which is often given to me in book form as a Christmas present. Years ago, I was impressed by the high standard and creativity. Now, I'm suspicious that the judging panel is dominated by a strong personality, and this puts a sameness over most of the selection. I think I've asked for it to be taken off my Xmas present list...

For me 'Waxwing Lyrical' and 'Fields of Gold' are the only ones that make me stop and look. A lot of the others are quite generic - indeed 'Fields of Gold' is hardly original but there's something calm about it I like. Does anyone else think 'Pole Position' looks slightly off?
