Friday 27th February - Pin Mill, Suffolk

22 club members + 2 very welcome guests made their way to Pin Mill on the beautiful River Orwell in Suffolk.

We were rewarded with a glorious day of sunshine and plenty of photographic opportunities to keep everyone happy.  Fortunately everyone had remembered their boots as there were quite a few sticky moments in the mud!

Lunchtime found most of us sampling the delicious food at the Butt and Oyster together with some of their very excellent draught beers.

See below for some images from our day:

Another well-supported club competition with 68 prints entered across the three groups.  The theme was monochrome and there was an impressive variety of subjects and styles on show.  The judge, Frank Blyth, assessed each print in detail and then awarded a score out of 20.

Tuesday 27th January 2015 Round 2 Digital Competition

Our EAF judge for the evening was Adrian Stone and he had a total of 76 digital images to assess and score.  He carefully analysed each image to identify their strengths and weaknesses before giving a score.  Adrian's constructive comments will help us all look at our images in a more critical light in the future.

Well done to the six people who scored the maximum 20.  Here are their images:
