ALL GALLERIES NOW READY AND POSTED.
It is impossible for us to provide a 'search by number' facility, as much as we'd like to, for the following reasons:
More often than not, the number on the competitor won't be visible (for some reason in triathlons the number appears on the back of the competitor, out of sight of the camera!), or it'll be too small in the photo as to be legible, therefore no software can read it.
Secondly, 'search by number' is only available through extremely smart and expensive software linked in with the right technology system which, as state-of-the-art as we are with our camera equipment and processing software, it's something which doesn't make economic sense to invest in yet for us.
However: we've hopefully made it straightforward enough for you to find your images by steering you in the right direction by using descriptive gallery names, categories and chronological labeling, and all in bite-size galleries with containing not too many images to sift through.
Please also note that where it's possible to differentiate a gallery by categorizing it (e.g. held marathon and full marathon) there could still be a crossover of a few files, as, for example, a number of the full runners may have caught up with the last of the half runners). So if you can't find yourself in one gallery, check the ones next to it just in case.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE:
For those of you wondering why we email digital files to you and don't adopt a 'download' policy, the reason is simple: we want you to have the best quality file there is with the optimum color balance and exposure in relation to the data the camera captured (we can't always control the light and other issues so not all images are at their best in the galleries). To apply that quality to the literally thousands of photos taken at an event is impractical time-wise and economically. But what we ARE able to do is to optimize every file that's bought by a customer before emailing to you. A simple solution!
