The 2022/23 season at Chorley photographic Society has been pretty rewarding for me, certainly in the digital sections of the competitions. Over the season, we hold four rounds of competitions plus the ‘Annuals’ to end the season.

Time to stop thinking of myself as a Nature photographer, but as a People photographer

A league table documents how well each of us has done across the four rounds and I managed to come out top for the second successive year which is very pleasing considering the level that the club operates at. In fact I got the Gold medal in all four rounds, the scores shown being out of 20.

The Annual competition (scores out of 15) which necessitates both a colour and mono entry was equally rewarding as I got Gold in the mono section with ‘Maid of Orleans’.

I then somehow managed to grab Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in the colour section, I can’t see that happening again! Gold was ‘Majesty’ a brand new, untested image, Silver was ‘Tristesse’ and Bronze ‘Let me in at Your Window’.

Across the two annual open sections, all ten images received an award of some description.
