Our final showdown of the season the

Best of the Best Competition 2017

After a slightly shambolic start while the entries were sorted into groups we were treated yet again to the wit and wisdom of our judge. Darren Luschover.

We always enjoy having Darren for these occasions. He never fails to entertain or to impart a sense of pride in our achievements in the picture making department, while throwing in a load of useful point to bear in mind when tackling similar subjects in the future.

With Darren the end result is the overall picture not the ticking off of rule boxes to get there.

From the Print section Darren selected as his favourites

Mono : Mel by George Dyne     B &I
Colour: The Obelisk by Chris WilkesCuidad     A

from the projected images

Mono : Vatican Staircase by Edith Cameron     A
Colour : Seed Head by Simon Hughes     B &I

Just a few of the images from this months competition.

Reduced to choosing just one for each class for the Best of the Best, the awards went to Simon and Edith. Edith also received the Pete Muckle Award for Photofest (visitors favourite) which she won jointly with Eddy.

Sadly with no end of the season results sheet available the awards for the various leagues had to be postponed. At least I came away with eight trophies for my shelf - albeit very temporarily.

Our thanks again the Darren for his comments and patients. The bottles are in the post.
