Each member of the club was invited to submit 3 printed images not exceeding A4 size and
of any subject.
These images would then be displayed anonymously to the rest of the members. The members were then invited to rank them in their order of preference from first to fifth place. First place would gain the image 5 points, second place, four points and so on down to fifth place which would be awarded one point.
This year twenty five images were submitted, a great improvement on last year's submissions giving some indication of the growing popularity of the competition.
The subject matter of the photographs submitted was as wide and varied as we have become accustomed to and included examples of spectacular images of birds in flight, land and seascapes, portraiture, places of worship and candid street shots.
With much deliberation accompanied by the consumption of tea, coffee and biscuits, each image was closely examined for subject matter content, composition, focusing and "WOW factor.
Eventually, all the voting slips were submitted and Gordon and Tony set to work totting up the votes.
Finally it became obvious that this had been an extremely close call with only a few votes separating the eventual winning photographs.
