Deepings Camera Club held its first print competition of 2015 last week attracting nearly 70 entries.
As this was an open competition there was a very wide and varied selection of images to be enjoyed. A highly experienced judge gave his considered thoughts on each print, where appropriate suggesting ways in which the photographer might find ways to improve the picture.
As this was part of the club’s league competition each image was awarded a mark out of 20. Perfect scores were given to Peter Hallam’s panorama of Sula Bheinn and Teasels by Chris Rogers.
Peter Hallam was awarded 19 points for another atmospheric Scottish landscape, this time of Bla Bheinn and Garbh Bheinn. The same score was given to Ken Bunch’s image Fighting for the Lead and to Frances Mair for her print of lions on the savannah entitled Keep looking - dinner’s out there.
Frances should be especially proud of her achievement as this is the very first time that she had entered a print competition.
The club’s annual exhibition takes place on February 14 and 15 at the Deepings Community Centre. Admission is free and there are usually more than 150 prints to enjoy.
The exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm on the Saturday and from 10am to 4pm on the Sunday. Visitors are invited to vote for the three prints that most appeal to them .
