Club Meeting 29 September 2016 (Digital Images Competition)

This week we had our first club competition, judged by Peter Paterson FRPS MPAGB MFIAP. (Peter’s web site contains a gallery of interesting landscape, abstract and still life images). There were 75 images submitted covering a wide range of subjects. Exposure and focus were common issues in Peter’s feedback. Several of the images were overexposed or contained colour noise. (This can be corrected by checking the histogram on the back of the camera.) Some images had too much going on within the frame, and Peter recommended cropping in to the region of most interest. The top scorers were (in reverse order):

  • 5th place (45 points)
    • Jane Renton
  • 4th place (48 points)
    • Steven Beard
  • 3rd place (49 points)
    • Mike Clark
  • 2nd place (50 points)
    • Jennifer Davidson
    • George Todd
  • 1st place (57 points)
    • Joe Fowler

The top images were

  • Abandoned Trawler (Joe Fowler) – 20 points
  • Fish and Cliffs (Joe Fowler) – 19 points
  • Old Man Storr (Joe Fowler) – 18 points
  • Prestonpans Sunset (Steven Beard) – 18 points
  • Neist Point Sunset (George Todd) – 18 points

Thank you to everyone who entered, and well done to Joe, who absolutely blew away the competition with his 3 top images.
