Monthly Competition Results

The Bolton Camera Club meets weekly throughout most of the year and gives a very warm welcome to visitors and new members. We have been sharing a passion for photography since 1884 and are more than happy to share with you, whether your interest is in film or digital, audio visual or more technical aspects of photography. 

On Thursday 27 July we welcomed back Graham Currey from South Manchester CC to judge our Themed Competition on “Places of Worship.”

Graham was presented with the 32 prints first, and after a run through he gave his insightful comments and scores. He held back nine prints, which he said were all outstanding prints, and after due deliberation awarded top scores to four prints: “Victoria Hall Methodist Church” by Ken Tebay, “Galway Cathedral Alter and Screen” by David Hawkins, “St Marks Church, Worsley” by John Morris and “Calling the Earth to Witness” by Eric Grindle.

Graham said they were all very worthy winners, but he would put them in that order, with “Victoria Hall Methodist Church” receiving an extra point if that was possible.

After the break we had a run through of the 60 PDI, and then Graham gave more very good helpful comments and observations, keeping back 14 images. He gave the full 20 points to three images, which were: “Mr and Mrs at St Oswald’s Church Cheshire” by Phil Durkin, “Whitby Abbey” by Keith Atkinson and “Church of the Graffiti” by Jeff Griffiths.
