|Warminster Annual Multi-club Print Battle|
On Saturday 16th. February the Club entered the Warminster Print Day, competing against six other local clubs. As ever, the organisation by the host club was superb with a good venue and an even better buffet afternoon tea!
The competition was judged by Syd Jones from Dorchester Camera Club who began the afternoon by demonstrating his own experiences behind the lens, when giving a short talk entitled ‘Monolands’. Sid amused everyone when displaying some of his stunning landscape black and white images; almost every image had a story attached. He made a very good point about the light and your own eyes (and head) being the most important factors. His judging was most informative, and he clearly explained his reasons for scores.
It was a really exciting afternoon and we were in the lead from the start right up to the final print when Frome Wessex pulled the rabbit out of the hat with their final image which scored 20 and also was judged the best print of the day.
Many thanks to all members who provided images for the competition and to Frank Collins and the selection committee for their hard work.
Congratulations to Tim Tapley who was awarded 20 for his image of a Marbled White and Small Skipper Butterflies left and to Pam Mullings who was also awarded 20 for her image of Claire Austen Roses right. SH
