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. 

Our fourth Themed Competition this year took place on Thursday 28 September on the theme of “Reflections”. We were delighted to welcome back Mike Stanley from Blackburn and District Camera Club to judge our competition.

The 26 prints were shown first, and after a run through Judge Mike held back eight of them. After his helpful comments on all the prints Mike awarded the full 20 points to “Bridgewater Reflections” by David Barker, saying it “caught his eye at the first run through”, and was “very well composed as it kept the viewers eye looking into the picture”.

After the break we showed the 50 PDI, after which Judge Mike commented that he felt that the authors of the PDIs had thought outside of the box with regards to the subject of this theme   more than the print authors. After his comments and scores Mike held eight PDI back, and awarded the top score of 20 points to “Little Man in the Mirror” by Ken Bradley. Mike commented that this was well taken and well caught as the expression on the face of the boy was superb.
