“Last (Small) Wave of the Day” by Mike Hughes – Winner Club Class

“A Cold Winters Morning on the South Downs” by Judi Lion – Winner Advanced Class

Our first print competition of the 2017/2018 season was also Judge, Roger Crocombe’s last ever competition. He would now be enjoying a well earned retirement from club competition judging. The theme was “Blue Mood” and it was interesting to see how the members interpreted this theme in their images. There were definitely many shades of Blue on show.

Ten members submitted prints for Club Class. The top 3 images all showed creative input and imagination. The results were:

1st – “Last (Small) Wave of the Day” by Mike Hughes
2nd – “Monday” by Alf Russell
3rd – “Famous For His Blue Mood” by Angela Wright

For Advanced Class 39 images were submitted by 13 members and Roger did well giving his considered critique in the available time. The results were:

1st – “A Winter’s Morning on the South Downs” by Judi Lion
2nd – “Vik Church in the Cold Light of Dawn” by Jill Denis
3rd – “Choral Evensong, Itchen Stoke” by Patrick Balfour

Well done to all members who submitted images to this competition with a theme that proved to be quite challenging. Our big thanks goes to Roger Crocombe for excellent judging on this night and all the times he visited our club in the past.

Our next competition is a PDI competition with a theme. “People” on Wednesday, 3rd January. The Judge will be Ken Scott.
