Results of our first competition of this year.

The theme of this competition was “Creative” and the creative element could have been relating to the set-up, in camera work, post production or anything else the author deemed as creative.

As expected, there was a wide interpretation of the theme and just about everyone agree on the winning image as soon as it was projected.

Our judge for the evening was Brian Gromett, from Cleethorpes CC and as usual, he was able to give an informative critique for each image as well as appropriate scores. Brian was also able to give some good advice for those who didn’t quite make the first cut.

Well done to everyone who entered ~ Scores and some of the placed images are below.

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
