The portrait section of the 2018 Amateur Photographer of the Year competition was always gaing to be a problem. The results so far have been:
Round 1, Best of British, 591st out of 638
Round 2, Fur and Feathers, 860th of 862
Round 3, Mono Culture, 581st of 827
Round 4, Close Encounters, 297th of 553.

Close encounters was a fine entry (using a dried butterfly bought on eBay) but with the portrait (as with the wildlife), GT is on a hiding to nothing [as predicted, see right]. Nevertheless, we'll sink with pride, channelling classical cinema with Bergman's Persona, also memorably evoked by Woody Allen.

Town and Country (aka Urban and Rural) next.
