Round 5 – Refreshing & Open Categories
Wow! What a year of amazing images we’ve had in the Club Challenge this season!
After round 4, it was pretty tight at the top with Chenxi fighting off Mike Ashcroft and Chris Andrews for the top spot, with a few others not far behind. The scores of the top 10, from the last round were:
Chenxi Ni – 155
Mike Ashcroft – 153
Chris Andrews – 150
Kathy Chantler – 146
Nick Bennett – 144
Peter Carter – 143
Derek Green – 141
John Timbrell – 141
Nicholas Razey – 140
Alan Taberer – 139
I won’t do the whole commentary thing as Derek does a great job with his weekly blog on that here.
However, Mike needed to beat Chenxi’s scores by 3 points and he would pip him to the post and take the win. Both Mike and Chenxi had scored top scores in two of the challenges each so it was all to play for.
Quite a few images were held back this week including mine, which scored a 20 in the open category (mental note, must enter more comps!) and Chris Andrews also scoring a 20 in the Open section.
John Timbrell gained a maximum 20 points with his image in the “Refreshing” category but Chenxi managed to gain the “Judges choice” award even though he scored 19.
Mike managed to score two 17s and an 18 for his images across the two categories which was very good indeed. However, Chenxi scored two 19s and a 17 across both categories.
So… the winner is… yes you guessed it, Chenxi Ni! Well done to Chenxi, you have some outstanding work and this was very well deserved.
