On Tuesday, we hosted Devizes camera club for a battle. The images were judged by Eddy Lane ARPS DPAGB. Eddy had not seen the images before the night so it was started with a quick run through all the images, this gave Eddy the standard that he was going to judge, and with the scoring out of 20 it became apparent on first glance that the evening was going to be extremely good.
The evening was split into 2 halves with each club having 15 images displayed randomly per half. For a total of 60 images being shown, Eddy awarded 15 images the maximum 20 points. Devizes having 8 and RWB 7, and 20 images being awarded 19 points, 10 images each.
At the end of the first half refreshments were laid out while the points were tallied and confirmed and Devizes were in the lead by 4 points.
After the refreshments the battle commenced, where RWB were able to draw even during the 2nd half, but in the end Devizes won by just 6 points.
We would like to thank Eddy for his as usual fantastic judging and also gave some really useful advice.
The Club members who got 20 points were David Garmont – “Landing”,
Andrew Purdy – “Coming at me”,
Adam Kowlczyk – “Lake Bled Dawn”,
Robert Slade – “Nepalese Women”,
Bernard Rose – “Kiskadee”,
Robert Slade – “Apache & Smoke”,
David Garmont – “Fast Corner”.
A congratulations to all those who got top marks, but a big thank you for those who submitted images we only just missed out on winning.
A big thank you to Devizes Camera Club for such a great evening, and congratulation for winning (if only just), the Club is so looking forward to next year where we all hope to put Eddy’s comments to good use. All in all a very enjoyable evening.
