Another league print competition this week ‘Open’ and set subject ‘Shape’. Great response on entries (as we have had on all competitions this season) A total of 77 prints over the two competitions. 38 open and 39 ‘shape’.
When you consider the amount of effort in producing prints compared to PDI’s, that really is a tremendous contribution from everyone who entered.
The standard was very high, with some innovative ideas on the Interpretation of the ‘shape’ Prints.
This gave the visiting Judge Rojer Weightman a difficult task, choosing the ultimate high scoring Images.
Overall an enjoyable night and some excellent work was produced, which once again will enable us to choose some strong Images to represent the club in external competitions next season.
I’ve added provision dates to the program of events list for next season’s PDI and Print competitions. I’ve arbitrarily set the date as the 1st of the month, and will of course update the calendar when the actual dates have been published.
This week we had a talk/ presentation given by Steven Galvin entitled ‘ I shoot animals and sometimes I chop their heads off’. The presentation featured mainly wildlife and some underwater photography. Many of the interesting Images were off a very high standard coupled with a good narrative delivered with enthusiasm and passion for photography. In addition Steven placed some superb Prints around the hall for the members to view during the evening.
Another good speaker and Interesting topic on our varied programme of events during the season.
Our final league PDI of the season with the final league positions being decided on the outcome of the night. Another excellent response of entries totalling 96 for the two competitions of set subject ‘night’ and‘open’. Sadly the entries needed to be reduced to 69 ( 32 ‘night’ and 37 Open)to give the judge a chance and be able to give meaningful comments on each image.
The overall standard on the night was once again very high, with a good spread of Club authors scoring well.
Damon Guy competently judged the competitions. He commented at the end regarding the high standard the members had produced, to make an interesting and enjoyable night.
