Fiona Govan Nature Competition

January 21 @ 7:45 pm - 9:45 pm

Nature competitions tend to be strict. No editing is allowed beyond cropping and you are not supposed to glue squirrels to logs in order to make them stand still.

This one is a bit different.

Fiona Govan, who died very unexpectedly in 2016, was a keen birder and nature photographer. Fiona had no love for judges who gave points for photographic technicalities, while ignoring the fact that Nature rarely poses in a well lit studio. Sometimes, the shot is squint because the tree the bird was in was squint. Sometimes marks are merited for sheer effort. Sometimes it rains.

So we judge this one ourselves, permitting a bit more tolerance of minor edits  or movement of the odd branch out of the way. No glue or photoshopped-in zebras though.

Tonight is also the deadline for handing in images for the 3-way interclub competition.
