Friday 13th January, and unfortunately the snow and ice prevented Kirsty Ralfs LRPS, our judge for the 4th PDI Competition, from being with us on this evening. She sent her apologies. All is not lost, however, as we will be sending her the entries and she will be able to judge at home and let us have the results by the end of the week. There was a good attendance on the evening, so we ran the competition entries and threw it open for members to contribute to the evening by commenting on the images. There were many excellent would-be judges (as well as a few real judges) who took full advantage of the opportunity. It was also interesting to hear from the photographers themselves talking about their own images, as on normal competition evenings we sit quietly while the judge sometimes (not always) misunderstands our efforts completely. It also gave us just a little more time to enjoy the images.
