I am a nature photographer and take most of my images in the wild but I do enjoy 
taking other types of images too, especially travel related. When judging I look at an
image objectively whether or not it has a personal appeal and try to comment
constructively on ways that an image may be strengthened.

My interest is on the natural world and travel. Alongside 'standard' images I like to
experiment with creative views of nature and mono where colour may be expected!
Having said that I am interested in all genres. I see judginfg as a constructive review, 
bringing out an images strong points and where appropriate making suggestions for
change that the author may want to consider. Technical quality is important. But
equally (or sometimes more so) so is the content, feel and 'message' of an image.
