Glyn Bareham LRPS CPAGB from Invicta Camera Club, Seaford Camera Club and Kent Digital Photo Group, judged our 2nd PDI competition on Friday 30th October. . Glyn, a Premier Judge and also an ex-President of the KCPA, is a very friendly judge, always appreciative of the difficulties facing photographers, and his comments on the images were encouraging and helpful. Good to find a judge who understood and appreciated titles. Division 3 impressed him with the creative and often unusual approach of the photographers, and he said that overall in all divisions, the standard was unbelievably high. So, a difficult task for our judge, especially in Division 1, when having to choose just three out of the excellent images. Commiserations to those who had put in amazing images only to find themselves taken out right at the end.
Division 1: 1st Garry Shorter with So This Is How It Ends, 2nd Chris Rogers with Number 37 At Full Power, 3rd Martin Till with Male Bearded Tit in Early Morning Light.

Division 2: 1st Anthony Wright with Etna, 2nd Chris Yates with Royal Military Canal, 3rd Kyle Tallett with Angel In The Window.

Division 3: 1st Les Gordon with Stodmarsh Nature Reserve Kingfisher With Fish, 2nd Suie Tomasini with Frosted View, 3rd Alan Britton with Golden Waxcap (Hygrocybe Chlorophana).

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 4th November (no Friday meeting because of the Givaudan fireworks) when Alan Bousefield ARPS DPAGB will be judging The Janet Morris Memorial Trophy Record Competition. This will be both prints and digital images.
