We all enjoyed the evening of excellent PDI images from the beginners and Intermediate members showing a very high standard of work. The judge Alan Cooke was very good at putting his red spot on the key elements that would improve the images. The issues that repeated themselves in his sympathetic constructive comments that pursue us all photographers were cropping, background clutter and all the finesses that need to be perfect in portraits.

He complemented many of the photographers with being brave with portraits and finding interesting angles and new subjects and in particular gave extra points to those who got up early to get sunrise images.
