2nd Open Print Competition
Tonight (9th Jan) saw the results of the seasons 2nd Open Print Competition judged by Nigel Bradley, from Ryton Camera Club.
Nigel explained that when judging prints he placed them all out in his front room and viewed them over a number of days at different times and lighting conditions. He also asks the opinions of other members of the family before coming to a final judgement.
For today’s competition Nigel said that the standard of prints were very close making his job of judging difficult but that there could only be one winner.
Firstly Nigel provided his comments on the mono prints followed by the colour prints providing his suggestions where the prints could be improved and the areas of the prints which he liked.
Tonight’s congratulations go to Adam Burness for Alex (mono) and to Jim Meikle for Harvest Mouse (colour).
At the end of the evening Nigel was thanked for judging the competition and received a round of applause from the members.
