• Online PDI Competition No.7

    During this prolonged Covid-19 closure of the club, it was decided to hold a series of online digital competitions in order to keep our members involved with the club as well as maintaining their interest in photography.

    For this open competition, thirty-eight images were submitted by eight club members covering a very wide range of subjects as can be appreciated from the slide show on our home page. In line with previous online competitions, we decided upon the democratic approach in which all club members were invited to act as judge and jury by recording what they thought about each image and giving a mark to each one between ten and twenty. (Their own entries had to be marked with a zero).

    Following the competition deadline, the marks for this open competition were averaged for each image resulting in the following three top placed images:

    In equal second place with an average score of 17.57 came:

    RED SKY AT NIGHT by Marc Read

    and

    THE SHARD by David Richardson

    And our winner this time with an average score of 19.00 was:

    KINGFISHER by Marc Read

    Congratulations to all the members who entered images and participated in this seventh online competition and very well done to Marc Read for achieving two of the top three places on this occasion.

    I felt the overall standard of entry was very impressive and it was certainly a pleasure viewing them all. As you know, we would love to hear from anyone with ideas and suggestions for future versions of this competition.
