Open Competition #4 – April 2nd 2019

Our final competition that contributes towards the aggregate points score for the Mayors Cups was held on Tuesday and judged by Clive Greenland from Corsham.

With everything still to play for, the judges comments and scores were keenly followed throughout the evening. A healthy number of prints were submitted and first place was awarded to “The Felucca Captain” by Adam Kowalczyk.

The DPIs were viewed using our newly acquired projector which had been hastily calibrated before the meeting started.  The winning image was “Push off” by Geoff Snowball.

This was Clive’s second judging visit to the Club and he outlined the positive aspects of each image and followed this with some suggestions regarding how the image could be further enhanced.  In many cases this involved alternative cropping arrangements and equalisation of space around the image to create a more balanced approach.

We now have a break in competitive activities until our Annual Competition which takes place in June and this will allow members time to reflect upon the comments and advice received from judges to date.
