Re: [Triangle-Photography-Club] The winners of the scavenger hunt

I learned more about photography in the 6 weeks of the "scavenger hunt" contest than I learned in the past 5 years.  So, I am pleased with the result, but mostly pleased with the challenge the meet-up group produced. Lots of fun.

This is without doubt one of the hardest things I've ever judged. My wife and myself went through the photos several times, made our own lists, came together and went through them again, compared lists, then we picked the winners. We couldn't decide on 3rd place because there were 3 people who's photos were so good, so we decided to pick three 3rd place winners! All three will get a third place prize.

The winner of the scavenger hunt is Donald Namm. Donald was the only person to get all 150 items on the list but quantity is nothing without quality and both my wife and myself enjoyed Donald's take on each photo.

Second place is Kathleen. She got 115 of the photos. Lisa and I both agreed that Kathleen's photos were unique, well composed, had great energy and were fun.

Third place goes to J. Slater, Terry Barnett and Melanie Atkins Busbee.
J. Slaters photos are in a league of their own, the lighting is beautiful and each photo was well thought out and executed. Terry Barnett's set of photos were a joy to look through, me and my wife got to go on a trip with him to Asia. Melanie had the most photos picked for overall best shot and I loved her unique perspective and artistic eye, her self portrait shot is fantastic.


Overall best shot goes to E. Thomas. The photo below is a beautiful abstract that had both me and my wife go "WOW!" when we first saw it.


I would like to give Donald Namm's fog/mist photo a mention too, it is one of the best shots I've seen from any member since this club began and it was a real hard choice between Donald's shot and E. Thomas'.

The list of shots that Lisa and I choose for candidates for the best overall photo can be found here http://www.meetup.com/Triangle-Photography-Club/photos/1190071/ .

Thank you to everyone who took part and I will be contacting the winners tomorrow, so that they can receive their well earned prizes.

Chris C.
