10th March: Projected Image Competition #6

Last night was the last of the season’s projected image competitions – it was a bumper entry and it was great to have Kevin Day along to judge.

The Beginners’ section was won by Ian Roberts  with “Old Man on a Bridge”;  he also scored 20 for  “Stork Repairing the Nest” and 19s for “Dragon Flying Cleaning Head” and “Shadows in the Bluebell Wood”.  Congratulations to Ian who is no longer a beginner!  Mike Kass  scored 18s for “Canal Walk” and “Searching the Land”.

In the Open section Kevin awarded over half the entries 18s and above.   Julia Wainwright’s “White Horse Running Free”  was the overall winner.  Twenties went to Julia for “Blue Tit Bathing, to Judith Gimber for “Worm Catcher, Trevor Alexander for “Southwark Station Jubilee Line”, Dave Martin for “Columbines” and “Staiths Harbour Sunset” and Avril Candler for “Fighting Goldfinches and “Lone Walker”.    These and all the images scoring 19s and 18s can be seen on our Facebook page.

Many thanks to Kevin for his informative and enjoyable judging, congratulations to the winners, high scorers and to everyone who supported the evening.

As this was the last of the monthly projected image competitions we congratulate Julia for winning the Projected Trophy 2019-20.

Good luck to everyone for the monthly Print trophy competition which concludes in June.    Lots to look forward to!



25th February: Culture and Wildlife of Ethiopia – talk by Julia Wainwright ARPS MPAGB

Many thanks to Julia for her fascinating and professionally delivered talk last night.  Ethiopia is a relatively untried and tested country and Julia shared some of the challenges encountered during the trip.  It clearly wasn’t for the faint hearted!

Through her wonderful images we explored the rugged Western and Eastern Highlands and the Great Rift Valley that bisects them.  We saw spectacular scenery, mammals and birds.  Julia showed us empathetic images of the people, their culture and lives, the mixture of ancient and modern living in a country still blighted by war and tension in one of Africa’s most diverse countries.

It was an informative, interesting and visually stimulating evening.


11th February: Projected Image Competition #5

Last night’s competition was judged by Rojer Weightman from Stoke Poges Camera Club.

Congratulations to Ian Roberts who won the Beginners‘ section  with “Cladding on Tower Block East London”.

In the Open section, Rojer cleverly avoided a ‘domestic’ by awarding both Judy and Mark Buckley-Sharp 20 marks for their “Sailing By” and “Horsey Pump” respectively;  the overall winner was Alan Graham for “Sunset Over the Bay”. Congratulations to them all.  Images that scored 19s were Judith Gimber’s  “To the Lighthouse”, “Lake Tree” by Peter Polkinghorne,  “Gas Towers” by John Draper and “Forward Thrust and “Portrait of a Lioness” by Avril Candler.  Amongst the images scoring 18 were “Mosque” by Alice Kass, “The Sunken Wreck” by Barry Sampson and “Venerable Teacher” by Gerald Michael.  These and the other high scoring images may be seen on our Facebook page.

Many thanks to everyone who supported the evening and, as always, special thanks to our judge, Rojer Weightman.
