What makes a great photograph? An age old question and one that is in continual debate. It’s a bit like naming your all time favourite music tune, it’s very difficult, because it depends on your mood at the time of choosing. Emotion often plays a part in a great photography Image and is regularly mentioned by competition judges when they say they are looking for an emotional connection or for the picture to tell a visual story. Of course technical ability and presentation are also key elements in the process. I guess finding the perfect formula is what keeps our quest of Improvement fresh and gives us all the Inspiration to keep producing new Images.
New Inspired Images were very much in evidence at our latest PDI league competitions with 70 Images entered into our set subjects of ‘Lines’ and ‘Creative/ Experimental’. Once again our talented and creative membership let loose with a variety of diverse images which met the subject criteria. Some outstanding Images were produced and within the higher scoring Images awarded by visiting Judge Alan Colegrave was 20 points scored by our very talented Gordon Calder for his excellent Images in both competitions.
Thank you to everyone who entered the competitions, making it a really enjoyable night and congratulations to the higher scoring authors on the night. This was the penultimate PDI league competitions, further adding to the nights Interest of points accrual within the leagues.
