Monthly Competition Results

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 second round of our PDI Competition took place on Thursday 21 March 2013 with guest judge John Fletcher from Ribblesdale CC.

After an initial run through he gave his comments and scores, and gave 18 points to 8 images, and 19 points to a further eight images.

John embraced our new scoring system by giving no fewer than five images the full 20 points, and not needing to hold any back. These were “Tulip” by Elaine Low, “Peruvian Child” by Chris Evans, “Nuthatch” by Paul Longden, “Monarch Butterfly” by Nina Thomasson and “Boy on the Bus” by John Durham.

John said “Tulip” was “a different shot of a tulip taken from behind,” and had “a good diagonal line and good lighting,” and it was “ a lovely image.”

“Peruvian Child” was described “a lovely image of a well wrapped up child” with just enough background, and the author had “done well to keep the feet in the image.”

John considered “Nuthatch” to be a “good image” with only the bird and branch in the shot .It had “good colour and superb details in the feathers.”

“Monarch Butterfly” was a "very sharp" image with "good colours" and great detail of the butterfly and flower.

“Boy on the Bus” was “super” and “a well captured portrait. It had “good position of the hand, often difficult to photograph”, and “good skin tones”. John considered this to be a “really nice image.”

The scores can be viewed by opening the attached PDF file below. Any member wanting to see all the scores should consult the competition binder on display at the Club.
