Tuesday 25th April Print Competition Round 3 – Seashore

For the final print competition of the year members had interpreted the theme, the Seashore, in a  wide variety of ways, ranging from sweeping vistas to macro details, from wildlife to stones. At the last print competition members were encouraged to consider using larger mounts, this week the judge frequently asked the question "Could this image be stronger if it was cropped".
Thanks to Mike Cowling for coming to judge all the images and from whom we all learnt a lot.
The high scoring images are shown below.

Tuesday 28th March: Digital Competition Round 3: Judge Sarah Kelman

 As members went to the break after the Club and Intermediate Images had been judged several people came up to Sarah and complimented her on her judging. Everyone learnt something, her comments were constructive, helpful, supportive and informative. By the end of the second half members were not bothered that we had run over time as the comments given to the advanced group were equally as helpful. With over 70 images to comment on Sarah's comments were well received and had all of us listening attentively.

Congratulations to all those whose images scored highly and which are reproduced below.
