Gwynfa Pixels 2012 Results

Last Saturday was the annual Gwnfa Pixels competition, this year 36 clubs entered only 1 short of the all time entry of 37.
We felt we had a fairly strong entry, however after 3 rounds we were only 2pts behind the leaders with our last image by Joyce to come. Normally that would be our banker, but on this occasion it fell short with a score of 13pts. Final scores below
 
‘The Axe Man Cometh’ by Gary Martin 17pts
‘Clowning Around’ by Steve Milton 19pts
‘The Eye of the Beholder’ by Jennifer Williams 19pts 
‘On the Farm’ by Joyce Mollet 13pts
 
Our final score of 68pts left us in 11th= place, which is on par with the last 4 years. The eventual winners after a countback was Tenby who finished on 77pts with Inn Focus, but Tenby took it with 3 x 20pts and Inn Focus only had 2 x 20pts.
Best colour was won by Tenby and best Monochrome was won by Rhondda.
 
Well done to those who had images chosen and special mention to Steve and Jennifer for both scoring 19pts. Thanks also to Jackie, Alun and Joyce for accompanying me on the day.

Gwynfa Piccadilly Albums 2012 Report

Last night was the Gwynfa Piccadilly Albums competition, which we have won for the last two years. There were 4 clubs entered, Gwynfa, Merthyr, Inn Focus and Llanelli, the comp consisted of two rounds of 6 images one print section and one digital section.
Unfortunately we did not do great we were last in both sections and therefore last overall. The final result was a tie between Merthyr and Inn Focus, who shared the trophy 6 months each.
Our individual results were as follows
Print Section
Bambi Killer by Graham Harries 14pts
Taking a Break by Tony Collis 14pts
Railway Sidings by Arthur Mallett 16pts
Indigo Dye Worker by Joyce Mollet 17pts
Twighlight Years by Joyce Mollet 16pts
No Pallette by Jennifer Williams 17pts
Digital Section
Clowning Around by Steve Milton 19pts
Hear no, See no, Speak no by Graham Harries 17pts
Rain Rain Go Away by Alun Lewis 17pts
Selling Marigolds by Tony Collis 15pts
Shoemaker and his Helper by Joyce Mollet 17pts
Stranded by David Rees 18pts
Interestingly there were a total of 10 natural history images all scoring between 17-20pts and as we don’t do those sort of images, it left us rather short as well as the fact that when our entry was chosen the overall selection available was limited.
So congratulations to all those who were chosen especially to Steve for the highest individual score of 19pts (well deserved)
