Competition: Panels

Club favourite Gerald Chamberlin EFIAP DPAGB of Morton Photographic Society was our zoom judge for this year’s Panel competition, held on Wednesday 9th March.

Members had clearly taken on board all the recent advice offered on how to build a successful panel and we saw well balanced images, with matching tones and saturation, which told strong stories in creative ways.

I’ll start this week with advanced colour, where the top spot was shared between Bill Pickard with ‘Dancing on water’ and Gordon Mills with ‘Brown Pelican’. Both superb panels and well deserved winners. Second place went to Dave Nelson with ‘Ready Steady Go’ and third place was shared between Maureen Smith with ‘Sunrise on Meathop Moss’ and Jo Knight with ‘A Disabled Experience’.

In the Club colour section, first place was shared between Peter Kennedy with ‘Sunflowers’ and Bill Lowis with ‘Who ate all the seeds’ – well done both! Second place was awarded to Kim Rigg with ‘Mary’s Shell’ and third place to Suzy Braye with ‘Swaledale Barn’.

After a half time brew we resumed with Club monochrome, where big congratulations went to Suzy Braye with ‘Old Gang Smelting Mill’. No second place was awarded, but 18 points went to Kim Rigg with ‘Splash’.

Last but not least, we ended with Advanced mono where Bill Pickard scooped his second 20 points of the night with his panel ‘Shades of Blackpool’. Second place was awarded to Maureen Smith with ‘Storm’ and third place went to Jeff Bagnall with ‘Getting ready to play’.
