5th January: Critique Evening – led by Julia Wainwright MPAGB ARPS BPE1*

We celebrated our return from the short Christmas break with an evening of gentle critiquing!

Some brave members submitted images they were either working on for guidance/feedback or had entered in past competitions and wanted to better understand why scores hadn’t met expectations. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening, interactive, informative and extremely useful; even better no blood was spilt!

Many thanks to everyone who entered into the spirit of the evening.

Next week we have our Open Subject online competition which is being judged by Paul Hendley LRPS.

In the meantime, Happy New Year – do keep safe, warm and well.

Congratulations to Ian Roberts who won the Trophy with “The Holly and The Ivy”;  Peter Polkinghorne was second with “Jingle Bells” and Judith Gimber’s “Deck the Halls” third.  Highly commended were “Festive Guitar” by Peter Keeble, “Misteltoe and Wine”  by Alan Graham and Ian’s “Jingle Bells”.
