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. 

Open Print Competition No 4. August 2018

On Thursday 16th August the club held its 4th Print Competition of the year.

The judge on this occasion was Rob Hockney who insisted he was not a judge but someone who offered their opinion. Rob certainly did that and offered plenty of advice also where he thought the author of the image would benefit from his expertise in competition photography. His comments were forthright and honest and by his own admission were his personal thoughts and that others may disagree with him. That is the nature of photography, it is an art form full of contradictions and opinions, maybe that is why it is so compelling.

The first set of images for Robs' consideration were from the Club Level members and in this group he selected 2 images to receive the top score of 20 points.

They are:

              Cyprus Church web                                                      Awaiting Image

              "Monastery of The Holy Cross, Southern Cyprus" by Dave Bell                             "West End" by Adam Hutchinson

The second set of images for consideration were from Intermediate Level members and in this group 2 images received maximum points.

They are:

                  St Marks Worsley web          Spa Day Indian Water Buffalo web

                            "St Mark's Church, Worsley" by John Morris                                         "Spa Day-Indian Water Buffalo" by Eric Grindle 

The final set of images were from the Advanced Level of club members and one image received the top score of 20 points.

That was:

                                                                     Kingfisher web

                                                                                          "Kingfisher" by Richard Towell
