Club Night Summary #120

Park Street Landscape Competition

Last week the first external competition was held ‘Park street landscape cup’ with 10 clubs including ourselves competing for the honours. Our history hasn’t always been good in this particular competition where we often come across other clubs with greater pedigree in landscape photography. However spurred on by our growing success in recent external competitions and some careful selection we fielded a very well received set of Images. We ultimately finished a very honourable 3rd on the night, only missing out by a few points from the eventual winners. We were also the only club to score 2 x 20s in the competition from Amanda Culley and Gordon Calder with their excellent Images. Overall a good result for the club and further prove of our growing strength in external competitions.

Thank you to all the members who had Images representing the club for this competition, making it a great overall team effort. We made a bit more club history by beaming this Zoom competition into the hall for us to watch together. We had good visuals on the large screen and perfect sound for the broadcast. It was great to give a collective cheer as the Croxley entries were shown and critiqued by the judge.

Having proved the technology, we would like to expand the use of Zoom broadcasts into the community centre hall for our next speaker David Clapp with his presentation ‘ Images with Impact’ on the 4th November giving everyone a chance to watch in the hall together. Looking forward to our first print competition for nearly two years in the hall this week!

See everyone on Thursday
