Forest of Galtres Camera Club

Monday 19 December 2016


Online Open















All the digital images presented for this season’s online competition were posted on the club’s website. During the previous few days, members were able to consider each image then submit a score out of twenty for each one. Dave Higgins, the club’s general secretary then collated results and supported by Vic Brookes, presented the images to members for discussion at the club meeting on Monday evening. Thirty-two images were entered covering a range of subjects from a striking portrait of a Goth to flamingos and from a view of Whitby at sunset to a study of mother and son enjoying a quiet time in the sun.


Scores were invariably wide ranging for any one image showing just how much one person’s opinion could differ from that of another. This year, scores were presented in percentage form with the winning image receiving the maximum one hundred percent.


As last year, Michael Wallis was to find how popular his images are with other members. He received a mark of 94.9% for Spurn placing the image second and 93.8% for Owl representing equal third place. Michael took second for the second year running. Equal third was Ken Proudley’s Frosty Morning but with the desired 100%, Pete Dobson’s Abu Dhabi Mosque was placed first.


The evening concluded with a raffle and mince pies. The next meeting will be on Monday 9th January at 7.30 pm in the Parish rooms when the YPU will present Images.


Members wish everyone a joyful Christmas and the best of health and happiness for 2017.
