Feb PhotoAssignment - Do it on your phone - Results

February's winner IVC photographic assignment  - Christmas Decoration by CarolineGood turn out of 11 members on our photo critique and judging meeting for a record breaking month with 36 entries. Generally great surprise at the quality of the images people obtained using their phones. As usual many images suffered from the problem of not turning the phone on it's side or not cropping the image later.

There was one clear winner when it came to the judging- Carolines "Christmas Decoration".

Lots of others got 1 vote vote no second or third place this month.

Topic for March is "Our Heritage"

Weather dodging on the Ely Photo Walk-Shop

What a stroke of luck - the weather held off for the Photographic Walk-shop in Ely today. Seven of us weren't put off and had a enjoyable walk around the cathedral precinct taking a few photos and concentrating on some technical tips to get the best out of our cameras.

An added bonus was that Penny & Val spotted entry to the Cathedral was free on Sundays so we spent quite a few minutes nabbing shots inside as well - all for free!

Hopefully people learnt a bit more about their cameras - this time many people had actually done the "home-work" which meant stuff I was talking about made some sense - I think/hope.

Looking forward to seeing the results in the Photo Assignments.
