Diamond Jubilee Trophy hat-trick

Yesterday afternoon, KCPA members at Ditton Community Centre witnessed Ashford Photographic Society lift the Diamond Jubilee Trophy for an unprecedented third year in a row.

After the introductions, our judge Jay Charnock FRPS, commented on an image from each of the 33 clubs that had entered. She chose Golden Eagle in Diamond Dust by Phil Drury from our selection to give her critique. She praised the composition and exposure of the tricky back-lit subject and how the diamond dust added to the atmosphere of the shot. It scored a maximum 20 points.

Next, Jay announced the Merit Awards. We were delighted to hear that Driving Rain on the Masai Mara by Stephen Cheek was successful in this category.

Ashford Photographic Society scored 152 points out of a maximum of 160, winning by one point over Maidstone Camera Club on 151.
