Well what I good fun, informative night this was. The brain child of our chairman, Paul Nash. The intention was to attempt to do 3 things:
I believe all these above were met. We certainly had a lot of members taking part and hopefully getting lots of learning.
The completion was about generating a fairly level playing field. The entries were to be straight out the camera, i.e no Photoshop wizardry. Each entry was spoken about by the author, why they took it and did they manage to create what they intended. It certainly helped me critique my own work and I hope others felt the same.
The pleasing thing was the number of entries which was quite high compared to normal competitions. SO I am hoping this has broken the ice for some and we will see more entries in to our club competitions.
Next one is a themed competition titled "Looking Down". The judge has been informed that either the subject is looking down or the author...!
Hand in is 10 November at the club.
Well done to all who had a go.
