March Competition Wrap Up

The PACC March competitions were held last night at our local club rooms with another great turn out. This month I decide only to enter in the open category only as I have had a busy month and ended up running out of time to be able to shoot what I wanted for the Vintage category. I had 3 images in digital and 3 in prints for Open. The digital open category was judged first up and missed the critique on my first two images as I was busy compiling the print entries into the correct order for judging. With my third entry "Flame Trees" I only scored a 6. The Judging scores were from a low base so I wasn't too disappointed. I found out later that "Morning River" had scored an 8, finishing 4th and my portrait entry "Maddi and Mallory" scored a 7 and finished 13th.

The Vintage category for digital and then prints were judged and there were some great entries that we were being served up so it was an entertaining night to check out some great photos. The Open print category was the last one to be judged. My entry "Colours of Parsons" was one of the first ones up for judging and was rather surprised that It scored a 10 without any hesitation. The last two of my entries "The Rocks" and "After Glow" both received 8's which was good for the scores that were being handed out for the night and both finished equal 9th in it's category. Check out the above link and click through it to have a look at the great photos that did well last night and don't forget to like the photos that you like as the photographers love getting feedback on their photos.

Before I forget, I'm in the process of putting together some instructional videos on post processing so when they are ready I'll announce those right here so check them out when they become available.

Cheers from me until my next blog post or video and don't forget to check out my Facebook Page
