We were delighted to welcome Robin Harmsworth, of Uckfield Camera Club, a Sussex County Judge, to our online Friday meeting on the 25th September 2020, to comment upon and judge our Janet Morris Memorial Record Competition. Not everyone looks forward to this competition, feeling that the very nature of ‘record’ limits their photography, but our members had produced an exciting variety of images, and Robin brought them all to life with his kind and careful comments. There were a few hints for future entries – some images needed a sense of scale and Robin felt perhaps some indication could be included in the title, and he made the point that ‘it doesn’t have to be old’.
After taking out some to clear the field, Robin was still left with more images than he needed and had a hard time thinning them down to the final three, having to lose some excellent images along the way.
His final choices were:
|1st place: Chris Rogers with Door Latch Lincoln Cathedral|
|2nd place: Chris Rogers with Bass Relief in Main Entrance Lincoln Cathedral|
|3rd place: Steven Bartlett with Head of Sleeping Buddha Sri Lanka|
It was good evening for all of us gathered together via zoom.
