Despite competing with firework displays on Guy Fawkes night, a good attendance was recorded for Keith Hart from Stroud Camera Club, who made his first visit to our club to judge the first Open competition of the new season. Having recently qualified as a judge meant that Keith brought an uncluttered approach to the judging process and his comments were both detailed and constructive. His analysis of each image not only covered technical matters including overall presentation but also explored the impact, creativity and the narrative conveyed by the image.
Accordingly his feedback offered several ideas to experiment with ranging from repeating the shoot with a different compositional approach to trying out various post-processing techniques.
The winning print was “Howling wolf” by Jim Bullock who also won the projected category with his image entitled “Revenge”. In summary the evening went with a bang.
