Our first competition of the season, as per tradition, starts with The President’s Cup, judged by our current President, Norman Carey.
Eligible images, are from the 2018/19 Points Cup competitions, for images that scored 9, 9.5 or 10 points. A seasoned judge, Norman commented that the standard of work was so good.
The prints were first, with 15 images followed by 16 pdi’s. Norman gave a full critique of each, mentioning composition elements, such as strong diagonals and the golden section as well as the use of complimentary colours.
On the first run through he held 5 prints, and in the pdi’s he held back 10, finally choosing his favourite in each section:
Prints – Ian Ferris -Macaw
Pdi’s – Pat Catley – Winter Sunrise
