Club Meeting 08 October 2015: Digital Images Competition

This evening a technical glitch made us start the evening with the tea break instead of finishing with one. Thanks to a heroic dash by our competition secretary, George Todd, our images were recovered in time for the competition to go ahead as planned.

The competition was judged by Gordon Scott, currently secretary of Mid Calder Camera Club. Cropping images to cut out blank areas or distracting features at the edge, cutting out distractions in the background, and recomposing images from a different angle were common comments. The competition was tight, and there were several good images. The top scorers were (in reverse order):

  • 5th place (47 points)
    • Mike Clark
  • 4th place (48 points)
    • Anita Nutter
  • 3rd place (49 points)
    • John Fowler
  • 2nd place (50 points)
    • Jennifer Davidson
    • Charlie Briggs
  • 1st place (52 points)
    • Steven Beard

The top images were:

  • Dahlia (Steven Beard)
  • Paper Kite (Charlie Briggs)
  • Trial by Fire (Jennifer Davidson)

Well done everyone.


Next week is Photo Advice Night, where we share and discuss our images, and offer advice. Please bring along one or two prints. They don’t have to be mounted. Something interesting to provoke a discussion, a new idea, a place you have discovered, or something you would like advice about, would be ideal. This year I would like the discussion to be more balanced, so we talk about what we like as well as what we don’t like, with the aim of sharing our knowledge and helping everyone to improve their photography, inspire new ideas or discover new places.

  1. Hi Steve, Sorry i should have 47 points (should have 60 points lol). Who had the poppy image in the field as i thought that was brilliant and worth more than 14 points.

  2. Sorry Mike, my poor adding up. 😦 We all left quickly last night, but next time I’ll take the totals from John Campton’s sheet before we leave. Since we missed the usual tea break after the competition, we can chat about the results next week. There were a lot of good images.
