Home Match vs Woodley - Judge: Ruari Cumming LRPS

posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings

Gone Fishin', image © copyright John SextonOur numbers were swelled on Wednesday 26th January as we welcomed visitors from Woodley Camera Club who came to do battle, the chosen weapons being monochrome and colour prints followed by digital images. The judge for this was Ruari Cumming LRPS, already known to us as a judge and as a presenter (remember the Hebridean photographs?). We usually like Ruari - the question was - would we still like him at the end of the evening!

We were treated to some really excellent images from both clubs. The great thing about inter-club contests is the extra variance of styles of photography and this evening was no exception. Ruari, with his usual blend of humour and detailed comments, moved through the images smoothly and efficiently. It seemed to some that he took a hard line with marking, as, after waxing quite lyrical over a picture he would finish with "FOURTEEN!" Ah well - but it was the same for us all!

You can see details of the scores on the website, but I will mention those of ours that got 20's: Tony Bates for his monochrome print "Swanage Pier", Rod Norman for his digital image "Out of the Blue" and John Sexton for two digital images - "Gone Fishin'" and "Crested Gecko". Congratulations to them and everybody else whose pictures were submitted!
