Good Bye 2012, Hello 2013

Happy New Year DVCC members! I hope you all enjoyed your holidays with family and friends. I am looking forward to a new year and being able to get back out and photograph again after dealing with some health issues the past three months. I encourage you to come to tonight’s General Business meeting with fresh ideas for field trip locations for 2013. Our next competition is January 23. Deadline for photo submission to competition is Sunday, January 20th.

DVCC November Competition

We had 40-50 images submitted in November’s competition. Our judge for the evening was our own Mark Pemberton. Mark provided excellent feedback on our images and when it came time for judging he had a very tough job deciding on who to give 1st, 2nd, or 3rd to since there were so many great images submitted in our last competition for 2012.

Cathy Cooper and Jerome Larson who both compete in the Masters level had three of their images take first place. Below are two of their winning print images and coincidentally both contained lavender as their subject.

Rick Calhoun, Alan Moore, and Chris Nelson each had two first place images. Amory Donaldson, Richard Fay, Lance Guelfo, Bob McNutt, and Betty Prange each had one image place first. The two honorable mentions (HM) were given out by Mark for images he couldn’t give a first or second place to. Cathy Cooper received an HM for her “Burrowing Owl” print and Euclid Viegas for his “Sailing in Unison” print.

Keep in mind that our judges comments are their own personal opinion and if your images don’t place in this month’s competition, you can always resubmit it into another months competition with a different judge.
