Many thanks to Gerald Kitiyakara for judging the first round match which comprises seven prints from each of the competing clubs: Ealing & Hampshire House, Field End, Northolt, Pinner, Watford, XRR and Harrow. Gerald gave us a solid, competent and considered commentary on all the prints without giving any hints along the way of his chosen twenty which go through to the final. Happily for all the clubs, he chose at least one print from each (and in some cases almost a full house!). Our visitors and members had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we look forward to an exciting final in September.
Recent Competition Winners. Congratulations to the authors!
Very many thanks to Alun for an extremely enjoyable, informative and entertaining evening. Iconic newspaper images and the stories behind them illustrated not only the progress and history of photography (from the first camera and horse-drawn carriage to transport equipment to the ‘action’) through to the immediacy of our digital world and the place of the printed page within it. A lively question and answer session completed the evening and a great time was had by all.
Last night’s competition was judged constructively and entertainingly by Lloyd Moore, his first time at Harrow(he can come again!).
In the Beginners, Eric Everatt won the section with “Autumn Tunnel” and scored 18 for “Contemplation”; Paul Liu scored two 19s for “Greenfly on my Car” and “Green Bugs on my Roses”. Congratulations to them both.
In a high scoring Open section, Alan Colegrave, John Draper and Judy Buckley-Sharp scored 20s with John’s “The Monk” taking third place of the night and Judy’s “Ortakoy Mosque Interior” second.
In the Nature section Ron Churchill scored 19 for “Hawker”, Julia Wainwright a 19 for “Osprey Nest Building” and 20’s for “Cheetah Siblings Grooming” and “Ruffled Bee Eater with Bee” which was first of the evening.
Congratulations to everyone and to Lloyd Moore for an entertaining and enjoyable evening.
