Close up/Macro PDI Competition

By | 17th February 2020

Tuesday 11th February

Members and visitors were welcomed to our Close up/Macro PDI competition. Unfortunately Chris Burstow was unable to attend as our judge for the evening but Roger Bathard, our own club member, was able to step in and judge the competition at short notice. We had a total of 62 images with subjects including flora and fauna, as well as very imaginative subjects, which made for a very interesting and diverse range of images.

This evening was a trial for an alternative method of judging, which resulted in places for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, followed by ‘Highly Commended’ and ‘Commended’. Individual scores were not awarded for this trial. The results for the first four images are below, which were followed by 5 Highly Commended images, and nine Commended images.

First place: Peter Clark – A Nice White Flower on a Tree
Second place: Jackie Tourle – African Grey
Third place: Maureen Martin – Poppy Seed Heads
Fourth place: Mike Doyle – Swallowtail
Congratulations to all members whose images were chosen on the night.
All the results from the night can be found on the ‘Competitions’ tab/Results 2019/20.

Grateful thanks ……..There are many ‘behind the scenes’ members who contribute to successful evenings such as these from laying out chairs to preparing and serving refreshments etc. Thanks also to Mike Gibbons for successfully showing the images on the night.
