Last Tuesday the club held its first ever competition between members with our invited judge Andy Davies MInstLM, LRPS from the Camborne & Redruth Camera Club. Andy broke the ice by saying that not only was it the club’s first competition, it was also his first attempt at judging! The hope was that the evening would encourage a spirit of healthy rivalry within the club but also, more importantly, that the comments from an external judge would help us all to improve our photography. Throughout his assessment of a healthy number of entries, Andy was unfailingly encouraging in his comments and advice, which was much appreciated by members. The results were as follows:
Flora & Fauna – 1st: Nikki Bathe “Pink Gerbera”; 2nd: Teresa Davenport “Sanctuary Owl”; 3rd: Geoff Osborne “Rose” HC: Claudia Crewes “Secretary Bird” ; Teresa Davenport “Let Sleeping Dogs Lie
Landscape -1st: Jane Sawle “Derbyshire” 2nd: Nikki Bathe “Seaton Beach Sunset” 3rd: John Teagle “Reflections HC: John Teagle “Striding Edge”; Teresa Davenport “St Ives 2012”
Congratulations to all our winners!
