Some Lovely Prints
This was our third print competition of the year,
I always look forward to the print competitions as I love looking at well printed pictures, which is something that I struggle with! It is always interesting to see what prints are put forward by the members of the club, as some photos are better submitted as prints and some lend themselves towards PIs. (something that I have to work on for next season)
We were not dissapointed, our judge for the evening was Carole Speight ARPS DPAGB APAGB.
With so many letters after her name I was expecting some tough comments! The scoring was even through out the evening with not to many top scores given.
Four top marks of 20 were awarded with three 19s, six 18s and fifteen 17s given.

This Coffee Club 'meet' will be at Southwater Country Park Cafe at 10.30am. I’m sure most of you know Southwater Park but for those of you who don’t, the lake and surrounds are fairly ‘pickcherskew’ and there are always swans, waterfowl and gulls of course. Occasionally I have seen great crested grebe (I think). The walk around the lake is short, flat and hard surfaced so not muddy. There may be boating activity on the lake either real or radio controlled model boats. The weather doesn’t promise much so if the lake walk/photography doesn’t appeal you could always take a hike up or down the adjacent Downs Link Path or just continue into Horsham and do your shopping (boring) or do some street photography (better)?
I have read or been told somewhere that there is now a charge for the car park of £1.50 (chisel) but no charge to go into the Park. The link below tells you ‘where it’s at'
Let’s hope the weather is more cheerful than is suggested but it doesn’t really matter as the object of the exercise is to get together and at least we can talk photography and learn from each other. Looking forward to seeing as many of you as can make it.
