For the Best of the Year competition, we invited Ken Scott back to adjudicate our images and prints. Ken is a member of Steyning Camera Club and is best known for his mountain landscape photography. A respected judge on the camera club circuit, he is also an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society.
In both competitions there was a disappointing turn out with only 15 members submitting in the print competition and 16 in the PI. Although the objective of these competitions is to find our Best of the Year, it also provides an opportunity to get a second opinion of an image that may have been harshly treated in a previous competition.
First up were the Projected Images where some 32 images were judged. The best of the night was attributed to Di Walker for Stilettos.
During the interval a discussion centred around splitting into two groups for competition purposes. After some debate, the consensus of opinions favoured staying as we are. All comments made during this discussion will be debated at a future committee meeting.
After the interval, came the 30 prints that had been entered. Best of the night went once again to Di Walker for River Tyne.
Ken’s style of judging is to accentuate the positives within an image followed by constructive suggestions on further improvements. A pity other judges do not take the same approach.
Thank you to all that entered and hearty congratulations to Di.
Our great friend Rob de Ruiter has the job of selecting the best projected image and the best print of the year - we look forward to him ratcheting up the tension as he did when he judged our monochrome competition last year.
