Award Shortlist   


By TrevBatWCC    
In our Camera Club, we run a monthly online competition for our members, where they upload anonymously their one entry direct themselves to the club's website. This has proved especially useful since the start of the Coronavirus, as it doesn't rely on face to face meeting at a venue. Each month the competition has a different theme, and once all the entries are in by the deadline date, the winner of the previous competition gets to judge the following month's entries. The theme of our first competition of 2021 for January was 'Red', and I submitted this image, 'Funnels'. Taken in Liverpool alongside the Albert Dock buildings, thought the quirky angle of this particular capture had impact. It certainly did have impact, as I found out at yesterday evening's online Camera Club meeting my entry came 1st out of 23 entries!
Struggling for what to upload next on here, thought it worthy of inflicting on EPZers…
Woke up to about 3 cm of snow this morning, but the temperature being just above freezing, it seems to be turning a bit slushy. Hoping it's all shifted tomorrow as I've got my 1st Covid vaccination… 💉

Well done!
I like the thin red line framing it too.
2 Feb 2021 4:48PM
WOW this certainly has an impact on the eye Trev. Very dramatic owing to the sheer size of the funnels and the diagonal building behind. Very well taken, I'm not surprised that it came first in the competition.

Nice image Trev. Hope all goes well tomorrow for you. Smile

They remind me of the teletubbies' voice trumpets.
I'm not surprised this was a winner, Trev, good strong subjects and the best colour - red.
