Sunday 28th April - Blickling Estate (NT)

Although there were no wild bluebells in the Great Wood yet, we did manage to find plenty of alternative spring flowers in the magnificent garden at Blickling.  The house also provided us with some splendid flower arrangements in challenging, low light conditions (tulips, tulips and more tulips!) . Everyone was helping each other and trying out different options and comparing results.

Another good turn-out, 23 including guests.  Big thanks to everyone for their continued support for our club events.  A few of our images from the day are featured below.

Tuesday 23 April - Round 3 Print Competition

Our EAF judge for Round 3 of our Print Competition (theme Action) was Andy Wilson, LRPS and his comments and scores certainly got people talking!   Competitions always create a lot of talking points as there are bound to be winners and losers and last night was no exception.

In his critique of the Club class entries, Andy described many useful camera and post-production techniques which we can investigate in future training and demonstration sessions at club meetings.

In total we had over 50 entries last night and you can see some of the high scorers below.

26th March: Digital Competition Round 3 - Shadows & Reflections

We had an excellent attendance at last night’s meeting which was Round 3 of our digital competition.  The theme for this competition was Shadows and Reflections.  Many thanks to our judge Bob Darts who gave each of the images a thorough critique before scoring them.  His constructive comments will help us individually and, as a club, we will pick up some of his suggestions in our training evenings.

Again, the images in the Club class were especially strong.  But across the board we saw many excellent photographs which interpreted the theme in imaginative ways.  Scroll down to enjoy the high scoring images again.

Well done to all who entered images and thanks to everyone who supported the evening.
