Kingfisher with two fish by Steve Gresty

Congratulations to Steve Gresty whose wonderfully detailed image of a Kingfisher with two fish won the public vote at our exhibition. There were a total of 192 votes cast, an uplift of nearly 100% on last year marking an encouragingly positive trend of interest in our work by the Macclesfield public matched by our improving standard of photography. I know a lot of you picked up very positive vibes about the quality of the exhibition so well done to all who entered.  Points were awarded as 3 points for 1st preference, 2 points for 2nd preference and 1 point for third preference. The Top 10 scores were :

1st Kingfisher with two fish by Steve Gresty  (76 points)

2nd Kissing Beeeaters by Conor Molloy (72 points)

3rd Over & Under by Anthony Gosling (63 points)

Well done to all the camera club members who entered our Annual Exhibition competition, the results of which were announced at last nights presentation evening. The quality of the images on show has already been much commented on by members of the public visiting the library exhibition space. The cup winners are photographed below from left to right Conor Molloy (winner of both natural history classes) Steve Gresty (winner of the people & portraits print class) Kevin Blake (winner of  the Landscape print class), our judge Phil Mann, Anthony Gosling (winner of both Open classes, the Mono print class, Landscape DPI class and People & Portraits DPI class) and Paul Scott (winner the Mono DPI class).

The overall best DPI was judged to be Herring Gull catching fish by Conor Molloy and the overall best print in the exhibition was Urbis by Anthony Gosling. We await the public’s vote on their favourite images over the course of the exhibition.

Annual Exhibition approaches

By News One Comment

We have had a high number of entries for our Annual competition (278 in all) over the 10 classes which should mean some hard choices for our judge Phil Mann. The exhibition itself will be hung in Macclesfield library on Monday morning 18th April and will open to the public thereafter until Friday 29th April. There will be a trophy for the best image as voted for by the Macclesfield public. Good luck to all who entered.
