Wednesday 17th January

Last Wednesday's meeting was a competition night with the theme 'Formation'. Members were asked to submit prints to be judged with this in mind.

I for one thought the theme would be an off put, as I felt it too narrow and too obscure. How wrong was I, we had an amazing entry of 43 prints with some very different interpretations, which gave the Judge Paul Jones a few headaches trying to pick the winner and score them all. However he rose to the challenge and did a magnificent job with his praises and constructive criticisms. It is not easy judging that many prints, which must be close to a record for the club with the newbies doing well to enter and score high, in the alloted time. I Know some members found it a long evening but the criticisms and praises help all of us improve our photography especially those new to the art and sometimes that can take awhile especially with so many prints.

I would like to thank all those who helped out on the evening and all those who entered prints. The clubs enthusiasm for photography shone through and bodes well for the future.

A great big thank you goes out to Paul Jones for standing in at the very last moment to replace the original judge who had to cancel at the 11th hour. Well done Tom for finding him.

Our next meeting is a club members meeting and Jill, our secretary, will email you all when I have finalised the events for the evening. Should be a good one.

Just a reminder if you want your prints of the competition displayed here please send them to Neal as per his email to you all.

See you all at the next meeting
