Natural History Competition

posted by Anon. in Club Meetings

Although the number of entries of this competition was down this year, with a total of 69 images, the standard of work was incredibly high. The judge, Peter Jackman, proved to be most particular about the whole of the animal being in the image and didn't think that monochrome gave enough information. As usual, he gave fair and valid comments.

Results as follows:

Print Results (24 entries - monochrome and colour)

Four 20's were awarded to:

  • I know you're there by John Sexton
  • Egyptian Goose by Nigel Fenner
  • Rock Hyrax - Blending in by Brian Jolley
  • Freesia by Trevor King

John's "I know you're there" (a stunning shot of a fox on hind quarters looking up a silver birch tree) was selected as the best in this section.

Slide Results (6 entries)

One 20 was awarded in this section to:

  • Martial Eagle by Nigel Glover-Wright

Digital Results (39 entries)

Nigel Glover-Wright Squacco Heron
Geoff Storey Yellow Mongoose
Sally Waygood Curious Kudu
Brian Jolley Too Hot to Handle
Nigel Glover-Wright Lioness at Dawn

Peter chose Nigel's "Squacco Heron" as best digital image and, after some deliberation, announced it as the winning photograph of the competition. Many congratulations Nigel.

Well done to all the authors for their 20s and to all the entrants for "having a go", which makes the competition such a success.

Many thanks to Peter for doing such an unenviable job so well.

And many thanks to Geoff, Tony and Frank for making the evening run smootly as always.
