Competition: PDI – Round 3 – “ICM” – Judge: Ken Woods

Wednesday 25/04/2018

 

“Zoom” by Ann Wright
Winner Club Class

“Beech in Winter” by Guy Turner
Winner Advanced Class

 

Congratulations to the winners of last night’s PDI Competition (Round 3 – “ICM”). Our last PDI Competition of the season.

An unusual competition theme for MCC (ICM – Intentional Camera Movement). Artistic genres such as ICM do not lend themselves easily to camera club competitions. In my mind each image is the artist’s own vision so comparisons are a bit pointless. For this reason the Judge relied heavily on matching the titles with the content, artistic imagination, as well as photographic composition. Well done Ken Woods!

The results were:

“Club Class”
1st – “Zoom” by Ann Wright
2nd – “Lady of Battersea” by Mike Hughes
3rd – “Way Through the Woods” by Sue Garrard

“Advanced Class”
1st – “Beech in Winter” by Guy Turner
2nd – “Down the Avenue” by Patrick Balfour
3rd – “Bluebell Woods” by Judi Lion

Our next competition is a Print competition (Round 4) – The John Harrison Cup – “Flora and Fauna”. This will be held on Wednesday, 9th May. The Judge will be Martin Pickles.

Our PDI League winner will be announced at the Annual Dinner in June.
