In order to gain the credit a candidate has to have 200 (or over) votes which is an average of 20+ for the 10 images.
This is a summary of my images, showing the order that that were presented.
The four members of us from the camera club had consecutive entrant numbers. This did make it easier for us to spot when our images were going to be looked at.
The votes were 22, 20 and 18. This meant that I was exactly on target.
We noticed that insects and birds were consistently getting over 20 for their votes. Images that had a ‘single point of focus’ were consistently gaining more votes much than ones without. I was now regretting adding my image of the three scaffold builders in Oslo.
The votes were 21, 17 and 16. This meant that I was now down at -6 from the target.
My concerns over the scaffold builders had been correct but the even lower score for the silhouette was my first big disappointment of the day.
The votes were 24 and 21. I was now -1 from target and my hopes of getting the credit were now raised! With two more images to go I was hopeful as both images had scored well in club competitions.
Their votes were 16 and 14 respectively.
My final number of votes was then 191. Way off gaining the credit.
