We decided to enter the L&CPU Competition this season at late notice and were able to submit our entry into the Natural History section. Due to the high standard of the images, particularly from Steve Gresty and David Tolliday we came third out of 40 clubs tying with North Cheshire. Congratulations in particular goes to Steve for receiving maximum scores of 20 for both his images and equally to Dave for receiving top marks and a 17 for his images. All of our submitted images can be found in the competitions images section on the web site.
To get our mental juices flowing and delve into the wonders of new technology we set ourselves a challenge to capture an image (or three) and process them solely using our mobile devices or tablets. To further push the challenge our images had to relate to the subject of time.
7 of our members rose to the challenge and submitted a total of 17 images with a wide variety of subjects captured. We then presented the images at our Photographic Challenge evening and allowed our members to select their favourite images.
Congratulations to Vince Sparks our resident mobile phone guru for walking away with the most popular image: ‘Dimensions in Time’ which was not only a great image but also demonstrated what was possible using Snapseed. Vince also had the second favoured image (‘Looking Back in Time’) with the third going to Denis Jones for his image ‘Ravaged by Time’.
Congratulations and thanks for all those who took part either in the competition or at the evening where a lot of discussion on the images and also what is possible on mobile devices. Thanks also to Denis for pulling this all together.
