4th PDI

Report by Marjorie Burge.

Friday 18th January was our 4th PDI, with Tony Bentley ARPS CPAGB of Invicta Camera Club, judging the 68 entries in the competition. Tony has judged for us before, covering the PDI Theme last year. He has his own judging style, very confident, plain speaking, straight in. Each image was carefully examined for sharpness and composition, and any overly bright patches quickly spotted - post processing was a must, and corners were a worry, Tony liked them shaded. There were some amazing images in all divisions and I felt sometimes the overall image was lost in the discussion of detail but with the high quality of APS photography we make  life difficult for the judges. Choosing the winning images was not easy and Tony held back eight in Division 1 before making his final choice. A good evening at APS, Tony’s judging is definitely not boring, he kept us entertained throughout.
