26th September: Annual Set Subject Print and Projected Competition
Our judge last night was Alan Copeland LRPS APAGB. Members are allowed two prints and two projected images each. This year our Print set subject of “Sunrise/Sunset” was perhaps a more traditional challenge than the Projected subject of “Holiday Snaps” – open to interpretation and more of a challenge for the judge! Alan provided helpful commentary and advice on all the prints and projected images before choosing his winners.
Congratulations go to Dave Martin for winning the Print Trophy with “Sunset Over Headon Warren”; Dave also took second place with “Watching The Sun Go Down”; “Stormy Sunset” by Avril Candler was third, with Highly Commended going to John Draper for “Sunset over Brighton” and Julia Wainwright’s “Sunset Over Flaty Iceland”. There were more sunsets than sunrises – not many early risers!
In the Projected Competition congratulations go to John Draper for winning the Projected Trophy with “Wish You Were Here”; Jenny Sykes’ “Strolling and Relaxing” was second and John also took third place with “No One On The Beach Today”. Alan gave three images Highly Commended and these were “Jill at Lake Minnewanka” by Peter Polkinghorne, Dave Martin’s “Man’s Best Friend” and “Checking the Rules” by Julia Wainwright.
Thanks to Alan Copeland and to everyone who supported and contributed to an informative and entertaining evening.
