A big thank you and a round of applause to all who submitted their work for judging. Between the 2 clubs we had over 200 images!!! Unfortunately it meant there was no time for judges commentary. My overall impression/opinion was that a good number of images were scored too low, a few were scored too high, but most were scored fairly. As you know by now, judging can be highly subjective.
If this was your first encounter with a camera club competition I hope you weren't scared off. You now know what quality of work is expected to earn a high score. Don't think you are not capable of bringing your scores up. Keep practicing, pay attention to small details and keep submitting work for feedback whether it's just a score or actual explanations of good and not so good features of your images. And remember too, on another day, with other judges, scores can be wildly different.
In Part 2 I'll summarize the results but after a casual glance at the score sheet I think CCC did pretty well against SECCC. Well done!
