On Friday 24th February the judge for our 5th PDI Competition was Zoe Garnham-Archer, a member of Invicta Camera Club. The quality of entries in all divisions was high and covered all subjects – portrait, landscape, wildlife, sport, street photography and some really impressive sunsets. Zoe analysed each image in detail and felt that the photographers had made the best of the opportunities presented to them, especially with the wildlife shots which, of course, have to be taken carefully and instantly or the moment is lost. The following images were chosen by Zoe:
Division 1: 1st Garry Shorter with Colin Blackbourne Leads Paul Whitelam, 2nd Anthony Wright with Ominous Sky, 3rd Garry Shorter with Pencils at One-Sixth of a Second.
Ominous Sky by Anthony Wright
Division 2: 1st Mark Caldwell with St. Catherine Kree, 2nd Martin Tilling with I Said – Nothing to See Here, 3rd Graham Salt with Flying Tiger.
