Rosebowl Competition- Round One

posted by Alan Copeland in Club Meetings

This year, we were the host club for the First Round of the Rosebowl Competition and the other clubs involved were from Abingdon, Stoke Poges and Wantage resulting in a 4-way digital projection battle.

The judge was Roger McCallum from Woodley and he had a very difficult job in separating such a fine selection of images. All clubs produced an excellent display of images and many of the photographs scored very high marks.

The scores were very close throughout the competition and, with just 12 photographs to score out of a total of 60 images, just one mark separated all four clubs.

In the final few minutes, two of our images scored the magic 20 and this enabled us to win the competition. The final scores were as follows:

  1. Whitchurch Hill Camera Club - 259 points
  2. Stoke Poges Camera Club - 252 points
  3. Wantage Camera Club - 250 points
  4. Abingdon Camera Club - 249 points

Images which scored the maximum 20 points were:

  • Amelia Rose in Church by Kevin Day (Stoke Poges)
  • Kingfisher by Neil Neville (Stoke Poges)
  • September Woods by Ceri Jones (Whitchurch Hill)
  • Snow Leopard by John Sexton (Whitchurch Hill)
  • Black Panther by John Sexton (Whitchurch Hill)

Star treatment was awarded to the two images from Stoke Poges - Amelia Rose in Church and Kingfisher.

Well done, John, for scoring maximum points with your two big cat photographs, Snow Leopard and Black Panther and also Ceri for your peaceful Autumnal scene in September Woods.
