Photos Accepted

Winter Post

Earlier this year I entered two of the largest photo contests in the world called Trierenberg Super Circuit and Trierenberg Special Themes Circuit. The contests are huge with many thousands of participants and many more thousands of photos. I did this through my Photo Club, "Bekkalokket" .

Now the results are out, and my photo club won a Trophy for Top Overall Club! And not only that, one of our members won two Gold Medals!

I, of course, did not win any medals, but 9 out of my 21 submitted photos (printed or as digital files) were accepted for the circuits - and I feel very humble about this indeed. And quite a bit proud too :-) So I'll share them with you.

I have presented preliminary versions of several of these before, but I hope you won't mind seeing them again. The first five photos are from the Super Circuit and the last four are from the Special Circuit.

Cold Reflection

Crocodile

Two Towers

Light and Lines

Wow congratulations RuneE! Excellent and certainly you deserve this award. Your photos always blow me away when I see them. The ones you are sharing with us here are all magnificent. I do believe the first two are my favorite, though they are all so gorgeous it is hard to choose.

So glad you received the recognition you so richly deserved!

Barbara Martin said...

Well done, RuneE! Now more people can appreciate your wonderful talent for capturing the essence of the scene. I especially liked the Cold Reflection, Crocodile and the Panorama.

The Greek Fisherman is my favorite

Gratulerer så mye Rune, det var virkelig gøy, gleder meg på dine vegne :) Og at bildene fortjener oppmerksomheten, heder og ære er det ingen tvil om, en lekker serie bilder!

Dina said...

Congratulations! Each one is outstanding!

Congratulations! I think it since a long time: your pictures are not only beautyful, they're also very inspiring and give me the desire to become a better photograph.They're wonderful windows on your country, and also on the way you see the world.They're not not only pictures, they are often also real pieces of art.And when you share them with us, they even become a gift.

Kjekt å se deg blogge igjen, først og fremst.:)

Jeg har slettes ikke sett alle disse, nei. Gratulerer så masse! Det var verdige bidrag uten tvil. Mine favoritter blir nr. 2 (det lyset og de fargene! Perfekt!) og de to siste. Komposisjon og annerledeshet. Flink er du!

all fantastic lessons in photography. Congrats on the win. You all deserve it! Stunning

Marka said...

Congratulations! You should be rightly proud of such an accomplishment. I'm looking forward to more of your great photography. Cheers!

Paulie said...

Good job! You should be proud of yourself!

Congratulations, RuneE! Your photographs are all magnificent. I'm still in love with the Croc and the Two Towers. Cold Reflection and Norwegian Summer are terrific too!

Glad you're proud!

Lew said...

Contratulations! Your work with the camera is excellent and I am glad others are recogizing the quality. I love your water (frozen, calm or wavy) pictures and the ones here are great. I'm also glad you are back in more photogenic surroundings!

Mike Simmons said...

All of them are stunning, Rune! Great job!

detroit dog said...

Congratulations to you, Rune! How exciting.

That Croc is scary! And I really love your panoramic photo.

Spiderdama said...

Gratulerer!! Så flotte bilder alle sammen at jeg vet ikke hvem jeg skal velge som favoritt:-)
Ha en god dag!

Vaggelis said...

congrats my friend. excellent work anyway. i hope next time you will be full of gold medals.

ps. i think that you didn't show the results very well for the local contest about Karystos.

Jayne said...

Congratulations! These are all worthy additions to the competitions. :)

webruci said...

Congratulation!
You deserve it! You are one of the my favorite photographers! (I have five, four are from Norway:)..)
I know how dificult it is to have accepted photos in this contests. If not 100% quality and creative you have no chance to entry.
Ypu are good! Humble and helpful, we can only learn for you!

Now I have a new camera *(Nikon D5000) and there is a huge diference between this and the old one. I need to learn more to give my best one:)

ha en fin helg my friend:)

Love the colours in 'cold reflection' but also really like the last two. Well done.

GAWO said...

Gratulerer. Både til deg og til klubben. Mange flinke medlemmer og du har absolutt mange fine bidrag.
Nå må du bruke sommeren flittig og skaffe deg et overskuddslager av fine bilder til høstmøtene. :-)

Gry said...

Gratulerer så mye Rune! Og vel fortjent! Min favoritt blant de flotte bildene var snekken med den eldre mannen til rors. Ekte norsk sommer, som tittelen jo også sier.

lynnwiles said...

First of all - congratulations to you. I remember and liked most of the photos chosen and it appears that the judges have good taste.

imac said...

Congrats my friend.
What wonderful shots they all are.
You must feel very proud of yourself.

RennyBA said...

Congrats!!!! and you really deserved this!

To see things through you're lens - even a simple things - takes it to a new dimensions.

Gerald (Ackworth born) said...

o well done - the crocodile is superb.

Ann said...

congratulations. Are you an amateur who is very very good, or are you a professional?

EG Wow said...

Congratulations, Rune! I can't see them because the Internet is slow today (or right now anyway) but I will be back.

EG Wow said...

Well, I can see why they were accepted, Rune! They ALL have exceptional light. Very well done!

Pagan Sphinx said...

These are so good! Excellence SHOULD be recognized! Congratulations!

Sincerely,
Pagan Sphinx
