Why I prefer a topic

Tonight at the camera club was another example of why I prefer competitions with a topic, in this case “slow shutter.”
Experimentation with a sheet of black perspex, a small lamp, a lego car and some black thread resulted in a highly commeded for:
I braved the threat of rain for about an hour on a bridge over the Eastern Freeway for a merit:
A failed attempt at startrails ended in playing around with glowsticks and lasers got me another merit:
My final image was from an impromptu road trip out to Noojee and the Toorongo Falls.
This was a week after I missed the club outing to the same location. I was lucky in that was late in the day and quite overcast (shortly after it poured with rain) which gave even lighting.
I also mounted the two prints (the waterfall and the freeway traffic) on white this time instead of black as I have done previously. For these images it made quite an improvement, but I think black does still have a place.
Unfortunately the next competition is open, but after that it will be “fences, gates and walls.”
