30th November: NorthWest Fed Interclub Competition Round 3 – judged by Paul Burwood

Last night we hosted the third round competition between Ealing & Hampshire House, Park Street and Harrow.  Paul Burwood gave each image a thorough critique.  At the half-way point all three clubs had equal scores and although Harrow triumphed in the second half and won the evening, it was not enough to take us forward.  So many congratulations to Park Street who will compete in the semi-final match in the new year.  In this competition, for each round, individual images are awarded stars and these will be judged separately in the Final.  Happily, all three clubs have had one or more starred images in the initial rounds so the Final will be of interest to us all.

Congratulations again to Park Street and good luck in the semi-final.

Thanks to everyone who came along to support the evening and of course to Paul Burwood.

Next week is the last meeting of 2021.  We have a talk over Zoom – Echoes of Silence, Chernobyl 34 years later by Graham Harries.

Have a good week and stay safe.

 

 

 

 

23rd November: Members’ Evening – Capturing a Day in November – led by Avril Candler

Tonight we enjoyed a face to face members’ evening – our last opportunity to meet up at the club before January.

The purpose of the evening was to share and discuss in open forum unprocessed images, giving and receiving constructive feedback.

Our challenge was to take three photographs on one day between the 16th and 22nd November.  We could use a mobile or camera, choose any subject, in home, at work or out and about and send the ”straight from camera’ images to Avril for collation.

As each image was shown there was feedback on framing, composition, viewpoint, technical issues/post-processing advice etc.

It was an instructive, painless and enjoyable evening – a great way to share ideas and helpful tips.

Thanks to everyone who contributed images and thoughts.  Special thanks to Avril for leading the evening.

We look forward to the next Members’ Evening in the New Year.

Next week is the North West Federation Interclub competition which we are hosting over Zoom.
