My "Kindergarten" picture was accepted in the 2009 autumn national competition.
This is a shot from my neighborhood. The text on the door to the left means "Kindergarten".
To me, this emphasizes the value of beeing in a camera club. In an earlier meeting we were allowed to bring the photos we were considering to use. I brought a version of this wall, but without the child. The feedback i got was that the message would be stronger if there was also a child in the image. So I went back after work and waited. This is the result.
I can't wait to see the rest of the awarded images on Flickr now! Search for NSFF KU and you will mimimum find the images from the spring competition.

It is difficult to create a composition when you are panning. Usually you end up with only the subject sharp and then not much of interest in the rest of the picture. Try to choose a background that will add value.
In this shot I was following the girl with a shutter spped of approx. 1/30 seconds, as her friend slowed down to hang on to the bike. She is sharp and he is semi sharp. As he is moving - but not as fast as her.
The two people in the background are completeley blurred as they were sitting stil.

Every week we have an informal competition in the camera club. Usually it is the photographer who shows his or her pictures who is the sole jury. The subject today was "reflection" and I won with this shot which you can read more about HERE. I am until further notice ranked second in the Photographer of the year competition. Trying to shake KRISTIN off. But overall she is still ahead of me :-)
Today's photographer was Torkil Færø. Who is a freelance doctor and photographer. You can see a few of his famous shots in this article (in Norwegian) HERE.
