The Bolton Camera Club meets weekly throughout most of the year and gives a very warm welcome to visitors and new members. We have been sharing a passion for photography since 1884 and are more than happy to share with you, whether your interest is in film or digital, audio visual or more technical aspects of photography.
The club held its fourth PDI competition of the year on Thursday 21st July. The judge for the evening was Jane Lines, a judge who is always welcome at the club for her knowledgeable comments and views on the images on display.
In the Advanced Level competition, Jane decided to award three images with top marks as in her words " How can you judge a Landscape, a Portrait, or a Nature shot ?"
These are the images that Jane awarded the top score of 20 points.

Having enjoyed a very successful four weeks at Waterstones bookshop our Summer Exhibition of prints has now closed. This has yet again been very popular with the public, and we received 339 voting slips, several of which had added compliments on the overall quality of our prints on show.
The print with the highest number of votes was “Bradley Wiggins Nan” by Paul Longden, with 40 votes.
In second place with 30 votes was “Asian Grey Heron in Flight, Kumana Lagoon, Sri Lanka” by Brian White. Two prints each scored 20 votes to come third, and these were “Faded Splendour” by David Barker and “Bareback Rider” by Richard Towell.
All the prints and their scores can be seen by clicking on the attached pdf below.
Our thanks go to the manager and staff at Waterstones for allowing us space to put on our exhibition, and thanks also to all the public who voted and (hopefully) enjoyed our prints. We look forward to returning in October with more prints for our winter exhibition.
