NECCC Digital Competition
The annual NECCC Digital juried competition was played. Because of time constraints the Open category dvd was shown.
The Nature category dvd is available from Bill if you wish to view it.
In the Open category our club had entries from Gary King, Bill Dixon, Cindy Meese, Roger Turner, Kathy Carr, and Tom Singleton.
Congratulations to Cindy for her 3rd place award for her photo, “Red”.
There was a lively discussion on the criteria employed by the judge William Barnett as he worked through the images.
In general, Mr. Barnett emphacized three main concepts:

  • The left-to-right movement of the viewer's eye as she/he looks at the photo
  • Vignetting as a way to highlight a certain portion of the image
  • Cropping to remove distracting or unnecessary parts of the work

The next meeting of the club will be on April 9th at VCP.
