Meeting & Competition, May 2008


Meetings

Over 58 members attended the meeting, and we had a record number of photo entries! This was an OPEN competition, the last competition of the 07-08 LPA year. Next month, all of the winning 1st place entries for the year will be competing for those year end trophies.

 

This was not only the largest turnout that we've ever had for one of our club competitions, but there were more really outstanding entries than ever in any single competition. We broke records in the digital entries with 28 members (14 in A group (Advanced Amatuer/Master) and 14 in B group (Novice/Amateur) with 68 digital images!

Our judges for the evening were Rich Breault and his wife Liz. Rich is an AV Press Senior Feature Writer for the Antelope Valley Press. Both are photographers and regular contributors to the AV Lifestyle Magazine.

Their critique sessions were quite informative. It was a real challenge for our judges to narrow down so many great entries to just a few winners

Those who missed getting First, Second, or Third place this time because of the fierce competition, should consider re-entering their photos in one of our future competitions as long as the Competition Theme will allow it.

Tylene Trout brought the goodies for the evening, and all enjoyed their Ice Cream Sundays.

The winner of the 50/50 drawing was Vince Capasso.

Print Winners

Note:

These are pictures of pictures. Some are out of focus because the lights were out and a camera has a hard time locking focus when it cant see what to focus on. Winners that have better pictures should forward them to me so I can upgrade your photo.
