Print Competition No 4 (No Set Subject)
posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings
This week it was our final print competition in the ladder series for this season - don't time fly!!! No set subject, so a wide range of images for the judge to mull over - and this week that said person was Caroline Colgate ARPS - a regular visitor in this capacity (does a nice line in toothpaste too!). Comes all the way from sunny Bracknell - first time she'd met our shiny new toll bridge!
A glance over the entries at the start of the evening showed that this was not going to be an easy job - a superb selection of images. There were landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, natural history and those lovely "of the moment" pictures. Caroline, as always, gave a detailed critique of each image, commenting on its impact and technical qualities. She made particular comment on the quality of the architectural shots of which there were several brilliant examples.
So who managed to gain a coveted 20? In the monochrome section there were two: Nigel Farmer with "To The Point" and Bill Scott with "A Concrete World" (which also gained a star). In the colour section there were also two 20s: Tilly Jamieson with "Nun Too Happy" (starred as well!) and Bill Scott (again!) with "A Face In The Tulips".
The top placings were as follows. In the monochrome Bill Scott and Ceri Jones came equal second with 36 points and Dorothy Wood and Nigel Farmer were joint winners with 38 points. In the colour section Bill Scott and Ian Nash shared second place with 37 points and Tilly Jamieson came top with 39 points. Look on the website for complete listings!
Congratulations to all high scorers and top placements - and thank you to all who entered their prints to make it such a superb competition.
Thank you also Caroline for your excellent judging - we look forward to your next visit (but the bridge'll be the same!)
