26th June: Projected Challenge set by Stuart Robinson FRPS

This year Stuart asked us to produce three sets of three images depicting life and/or movement. Through his critique and comments, we gained a better understanding of how, in the professional world of photo journalism especially,  it is important to create a story with each image contributing an element/adding to the whole rather than just emphasising through repetition.  An important learning for us all in our personal and competitive photography.

Huge congratulations to Alice Kass whose “Changing Guard” set ticked all Stuart’s boxes and received the best set of the evening prize.

Thanks to Stuart and to everyone who entered – all the work you did to contribute to  the evening is much appreciated.
