Digital Competition No 3 Transport

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

So there we were last Wednesday - all gathered in the village hall for the next ladder competition - projected images with the subject - 'Transport'. And the man in the hot seat this time was Colin Harrison - who'd given a presentation in November - and had come all the way from Cheltenham. So would it be a Gold Cup winner - or a series of hurdles???

Well, the run-through showed that there was a high standard of photography on show - and 48 of them too - a hard job for Colin then! As you'd expect there was a wide interpretation of the subject - everything from an airliner to a pair of walking boots!!!

Colin gave a thorough analysis of each image (or should it be dissection?). The one main criticism he seemed to level at a number of the photographs was regarding the sky (he clearly has an aversion to even slightly bland skies!!). But along with that were his very constructive comments.

So at the end of the evening we had several images scoring 20s. Brilliant! These were 'London Rail Hub' by Ian Nash; 'Speed' by Tony Bates and two - yes TWO by Lawrence Heward - 'Traffic Jam' and 'Pedal Powered'. Both of Lawrence's were also awarded the stars!!

And now the final placings ..... three people shared third place - Roy Love, Nigel Glover-Wright and Ian Nash - all with 38 points. Then in second place came Tony Bates with 39 points. This meant of course that with a perfect 40/40, Lawrence Heward galloped home in first place!

So after all the runners had the customary bucket of water thrown over them followed by a good rub - down, we could all say what a great evening's viewing we'd had! Thanks to all who entered - and congratulations to all the top scorers and winners! And thanks of course to Colin for his excellent judging (we'll do better with our skies next time - honest!).
