Featuring. . . 1st Annual Intra-club Challenge

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in Member Spotlight

For Season Nine, the Program Committee added a fun challenge. We divided the club into two teams – Nikon or Canon (anyone shooting something else was assigned to the Canonites as their numbers were fewer). Then we came up with a list of twenty-one (21) categories to be shot any time after our first meeting in September when the list was revealed. Carl and Judy stepped up as Co-captains for the Canonites while Bernie and Ellen assumed those roles for the Nikonians.

 

The list included Architectural angle, Bridge, Broken, Curve, Fence, Fire escape, Foliage, Four (4), Friendship, Happy, Looking down, Neon sign, Orange, Parallel lines, Peeling paint, People at work, Porch, Reflections, Through the window, Timepiece, and Triangle!

An evening was set aside in March for the teams to come together and see what they had shot for the final judging to be held in May. It also provided an opportunity to see which categories may be missing images or weak.

We asked long-time favorite judge, Diane Robertson to make the difficult decision as to which team best filled the category. After both images were projected a couple of times, Diane chose the winning image.

 

The final results could not have been any closer as Team Nikon came out on top in eleven (11) of the subjects with the Canonites capturing ten (10)! Nikonian Captain Bernie had three winning images in the mix while Jim, Marainn, and Pat I. had two for the second place finishers.
