Knockout #2

Set Subject – Knockout #2 20 March 2018
2018 saw the first time we have ever run two Knockout Competitions in a single season! But this time there was a slight restriction – only pictures which had been taken during the season could be entered into the competition. The idea was to showcase images members had produced as a result of the sessions held earlier in the year. This produced lots of interesting portraits of other members which raised a chuckle and some really good Christmas special effects. After several rounds of voting Phil Robson’s storm lashed “Lighthouse” was voted into 1st place.1st Phil Robson - LighthouseIn 2nd place was Bill Norfolk with a very cold and delicate looking “Crocus Drift” which had been taken in his garden just a few days before!2nd Bill Norfolk - Crocus Drift3rd place was taken by Ian Morton for the beautifully colourful shot of a pair of trees taken at sunrise and titled, “Morning Glory”.3rd Ian Morton - Morning GloryIn almost total contrast John Atkinson’s monochrome study, “Quayside” was voted into 4th place.4th John Atkinson - Quayside MonoThe full set of pictures entered is available on our Flick webspace – click here
