How I Took That Shot – Miriam Keogh

Miriam Keogh took the top spot in Grade C in our recent 'Vacation' competition with the shot above. This is how the shot came about:

This was a bridge I was walking over in Pontevedre in Spain as part of the Camino Way. It was early morning and only fellow walkers were to be seen beginning the days journey. The water was so calm and the sun just rising which gave it the orange glow and I just had to stop and take a photo.

Well done Miriam.

ECCG Shoots 2017 Competition – 06/06/2017

ECCG's fourth internal competition of the year was for images taken during any of the Group's shoots held during 2017. With no other theme to focus the entries, they were indeed varied as can be seen in the competition's gallery.

While the best picture overall was the brilliant portrait above taken by Noelle Lowney at last weekend's Innishannon Steam Rally, there were some great battles across the grades as the votes were counted.

When the final tally was recorded the spoils were divided as follows:

In Grade C, Paul Stack took first place with a winning margin of seven points from Miriam Keogh with Andrew Foley taking third.

Noelle Lowney had a very comfortable win in Grade B, a full 68 points ahead of Jim O'Neill in second place while Keith Johnson took the third spot.

Grade A saw the tightest of margins with Denis Barry holding onto a one point lead from Michael Hickey to win the Grade while Kevin Day was only another eight points adrift in third.

In the overall scores, Noelle Lowney had a thirty point cushion in first place with Paul Stack and Miriam Keogh taking second and third places respectively.

Well done to all twenty entrants.
