Red face In Shock - Managed joint 1st in Camera Club Comp

Was just in contact in with one of our members, without realising he helps run Cheltenham Camera Club - Dedicated to the Photographic Arts Since 1865 , which I am a member of He's just told me my first every entry to a comp came joint 1st with 2 other photographers

I couldn't make it to the competition to see how it was judged, as work had me still in London that night, so the above came as a complete shock. From memory they allowed up to 3 shots, taking the sum of your top 2 to get your final score. I entered the following 2 shots :-



& a less processed version of this shot :-



Having seen previous entries at Cheltenham club the standard is very high, which makes it even more of a shock....but a pleasant one

Thanks to Dave Canon for letting me know

Re: In Shock - Managed joint 1st in Camera Club Comp

I can understand you won, I just can't understand the shock.... these are cracking pictures! The two that shared joint first place must have entered some crackers and it is a good indicator of the rising quality of pictures entered into club competitions. As a judge i have noticed a very distinct rise in both the range and the quality of a lot of the entries i am asked to comment on and give a score to.

Great work Dave.... as always

Rob

Re: In Shock - Managed joint 1st in Camera Club Comp

Dave, you may be interested to know that this particular annual competition was changed this year to allow digital files as well as slides and prints. Your pics were digital files but the other two joint winners had prints and slides respectively. Shows the judge (another local photographer from Gloucester) was unbiased but he just scored each picture irrespetive of the format (and you could have mixed prints, slides and files).

One member wrote some software which allowed us to organise and display the digital files much as we would for slides, in fact better. We had been having a little difficulty setting up the Club digital projector to show the files to their best. I was tasked with adjusting the settings and the projector was set up primarily on your picture of the girl. I checked very carefully on Photoshop that although the face is light, it is NOT burnt out anywhere. We reckoned if we could project this image right other swould fall into place. Anyway it certainly worked for you and everyone who saw the pic liked it.

We plan to do even better with projector calibration in future as Spider 2 Pro now has digital projector software and a member has agreed to lend me his Spider 2 pro.

Re: In Shock - Managed joint 1st in Camera Club Comp

It's great to see the club supporting Digital files, as this can only encourage more entries in the long term. I must admit I was a tad concerned re the callibration of the projector, but it seems it was all sorted in the end.

Although prints are still the primary source for competitions, when you have a club with so many members, the people sat at the back of the hall have trouble appreciating the judging of the prints. Where as slides & Digital projection are far more involving for the audience.

Looking forward to the next Comp......& that reminds me I must pick up my mounted prints tomorrow , to bring along to the club
