Tuesday 26 November - Round 1 Print Competition - Open

We welcomed back Howard King to judge the first round of this season's print competition. One of his first observations was that some images in the Members Class were worthy of being in Members Advanced.  

There were 16 images in the Members Class and Howard gave a thorough critique of each one.  He had no hesitation in awarding 20 points to Seal At Sunrise by Donna Smith and Migrant Hawker by Maureen Campbell.

In members Advanced Class there were 46 prints to assess and seven attained top marks.  Howard commented on the pros and cons of each one in an informative way.  We all picked up tips which will help us improve our photography.    

The images which were awarded 20 and 19 can be seen below.

This print competition was the first time we had projected digital versions of the prints being judged.  When Robin asked the audience at the end if they thought this was a good idea, there was an overwhelming show of hands in favour.
