Critique Evening 19 February 2015

With a total of 45 images in the gallery in advance, we had a lot to talk about on this our second critique evening of the year. I was interesting to hear what the author was trying to achieve in each case and how he/she had gone about it. It was surprising how often opinions on how an image could be improved developed into a consensus - and there were the inevitable disagreements. One man's meat will always be another man's poison!
Third Digital Projected Image Competition Evening

Thursday 12 February saw the third of our competition evenings for projected images. Howard Toll stepped in to do the judging at short notice, giving us an entertaining evening without the aid of his owls.
First up was the Percy Lund Rose Bowl for the best Novice All-Rounder. A very close contest, just won by Kyle Smith with his images 'Goit Stock Falls', 'The Old Sew', 'Steam Punk' and 'Gin and Tonic'. A close second, also scoring a total of 65 points was Tony Kilcoyne. Very bad luck, really! Indeed the lowest score in this competition was 63 - not far away!
Next to be judged was the VB Lloyd Trophy for photojournalism, action and sport. From a healthy, varied entry of forty images, 'Lunch Break, Haworth Wartime Weekend' won; a great candid shot by Graeme Mitchell.
