CHRIS CRANE CUP 23rd March 2017
Tonight saw the results of the Chris Crane Cup PDI competition, judged by Dave Illingworth from Morpeth Camera Club.
Dave, and his wife Elaine, were former members of Cramlington Camera Club, and were made more than welcome, especially as Elaine had been really ill for some time. It was really wonderful to see them both.
Dave said that, as expected, he had found it difficult to pick the winning images, and the 'Highly Commended', owing to the high standard of entries submitted by the members. Throughout the evening he kept us entertained with his humour, and also pointed out why he liked, or disliked the images on display.
In the end, he awarded 1st Place to Julia Robson's stunning shot of an Astrantia plant. Dave commented that the detail and colours in the shot were outstanding, and that's why had chosen it as the winning image. A very worthy winner indeed. Alan Lockey's image of the Transporter Bridge was placed second, and Paul Murphy's Lubrication image, was placed third.
Dave also awarded 6 'Highly Commended' to the following members. Liz Lockey (x2) Ray Thompson (x2) John Ridley and Peter Moody.
At the end of the evening, Lauren thanked Dave for entertaining us, and judging our competition. She also thanked Chris Crane's wife Anne for presiding over the evenings events, and we look forward to seeing Anne at the presentation evening, to present the trophy to Julia.
ONCE AGAIN, many thanks to all the members for submitting their images. Much Appreciated.
