Cowbridge was a very wet and cold place on Thursday 15th July yet a dozen hardy souls braved the deluge to take part in the Gwynfa mini photo marathon. Entrants had up to 2½ hours to take five photographs on five subjects in the correct order. The five subjects were “Wet”, “On The Move”, “Street Life”, “Looking Up” and “Self Portrait”.
Organiser Leigh is very impressed by the quality and inventiveness of the photographs submitted particularly considering the dire conditions. Well done to Teresa, Andy, Betty, Heidi, Alec, Allan Squires, Nick, Alan Shepherd, Gary W., Cecilia and Philippa for coming out and getting stuck in on such a terrible night.
The winners were:
|WET – Cecilia Hannigan-Davies
|ON THE MOVE – Nick Jenkins
STREET LIFE – Cecilia Hannigan-Davies
LOOKING UP – Teresa Baker
SELF PORTRAIT – Andy Baker
BEST PANEL OF FIVE PHOTOGRAPHS – Alec Stewart
Special thanks to judge Gary Green for his deliberations and interesting statistics. It was interesting to note that Alec Stewart completed the task in 20 minutes and Nick Jenkins in 21 minutes. At the other end of the scale were Heidi Stewart (52 minutes) and Alan Shepherd (51 minutes). It was also noteable that Nick Jenkins took all five of his shots from within 3 metres of the pub doorway! Philippa Wood and Andy Baker took only 9 photos each. The aforementioned Alan Shepherd took over 50. The winners received some very nice ‘poundstretcher’ prizes ranging from an inflatable travel cushion and a pencil set for subject winners to the grand prize of a ‘Captain Kirk’ action figure for the overall panel winner.
