This week saw the second Internal Competition and was judged by Stewart Dodd from the Dundee Photographic Society. This experienced judge gave us an insight into his thoughts when presented with images for competition. His critiques were cogent and informative and should help members improve their own images before presenting them for judgement in competition.
In the PDI section 3rd place went to John Drummond for No 24, in 2nd was Mathew Schwartz for Mirabello Bay, and in 1st place was Monica Vella with V&A.
The Mono Print section had in 3rd place Bill Donald with In the Lea of the Ben, in 2nd was Chris Reekie with Flying Hand Off and 1st again went to Chris Reekie with Cap High.
In the Color Print section, 3rd place went to Emily Noakes with Falls in the Grove, in 2nd was Bill Donald with Boulder Beach Penguin and 1st place went to Emily Noakes for Path Into the Castle. The evening closed with high praise for judge Stewart for his relevant insights and his humour.
