One of the top-scoring creative images in the Quad Cities Photography Club competition for May was created by Mary Anderson. On a recent trip to Costa Rica, she was staying at a lodge near the Arenal Volcano. There were lovely gardens, and while walking around the lodge she found an interesting orange and white blossom. She wanted to liven it up a bit, so she used Photoshop Elements and Topaz plug-ins to create the unusual look. She used a Nikon D5000 camera with a Nikon 18-300-millimeter lens.

The Quad Cities Photography Club welcomes visitors and new members. The club sponsors numerous activities encompassing many types and aspects of photography. It holds digital and print competitions most months. At its meetings, members discuss the images, help each other to improve, and socialize. The club also holds special learning workshops and small groups that meet on specific photography topics, and occasionally offers interesting shooting opportunities. The club meets at 6:30 p.m. the first Thursday of the month September through June at the Butterworth Center, 1105 Eighth Street in Moline.

A 2013 photo-contest winner by Jess Ellis

The theme for the River Cities’ Reader 2014 photography contest is summer – in large part because we want to erase memories of our beastly winter.

The four categories are “Fun in the Sun,” “In the Garden,” “Heat Wave,” and “Summer Nights.”

The deadline for entries is May 9, and the rules are below. We plan to publish the winners in our May 29 issue.

(The photo above, by Jess Ellis, is a winner from our 2013 contest, incidentally.)

We had 69 entries in our spring photography contest, with the categories “brazen,” “future,” and “illumination.” As you might guess, that last one got the majority of the entries, and there were admittedly some struggles in making connections between the prompts and the pictures in the other two.

That’s part of the fun of these contests, however. On these pages you’ll find some of our favorites, with whatever commentary the photographer provided.

Thanks to all who entered!

Illumination, First Place: Skylar Davis. “I decided to submit this piece to the illumination category because it shows both actual light and a representation of being illuminated by God. The subject was praying before a dress rehearsal of a play she was nervous about participating in.”

Brazen, Third Place: Jess Ellis. “Na Pali Coast, Kauai.”
