Our judge on Friday 9th October for our 1st Print Competition was Zoe Garnham-Archer, an accredited KCPA judge and a member of Invicta Camera Club. Zoe, on her third visit, arrived just a little late having come off the motorway one junction too soon but went straight into judging over 80 prints. Members are always enthusiastic at the beginning of the season and the quality and variety in all divisions was amazing. A difficult job indeed for our judge who gave close attention to detail on each and every image. Zoe liked to find a story, was keen on position within the frame, dark areas were worry, and often felt that a different angle would have produced a better image; being in the right place at the right time was key to success.
After a tight-packed evening with so many entries, and nine being held back in Division 1 (the high standard making it very difficult), Zoe chose the following:
Division 1: 1st Anthony Wright with Calmed, 2nd Chris Shore with Faded Beauty, 3rd George Pearson with Dawn Prayers.
Division 2: 1st Kyle Tallett with Wreck of the Minesweeper 294, 2nd Chris Yates with Cordoba, 3rd Sean Harding with Going On a Flap.
Division 3: 1st Linda Thackeray with Standing Room Only, 2nd Les Gordon with Veiled in Thorns, 3rd William Knuckey with John Lennon Wall – Prague.
Next Friday, 16th October, Tuan Nguyen (http://www.lightreflex.co.uk) will be entertaining us with ‘My Photographic Journey’ with both digital and prints. Last night for entries into the 2nd PDI Competition.
