Chris Neill-Griffin was our judge at last nights PDI Competition for Club and Intermediate members, overcoming another night of traffic chaos when entering Chichester from the west. Chris is one of our regular judges well known for her ‘forensic’ style in picking up details which enhance or sometimes distract in the image. She was very complementary on the standard of work produced in both categories and her careful analysis of images, clearly expressed and with considerable humour was appreciated by all.
Her comments incorporated best use of depth of field, image balance, removing distractions and ensuring consistency of light and shadow across all parts of each scene. In giving the Vote of Thanks Glyn Edmunds commented on Chris’s excellent rapport with her audience, her clarity of expression and the many practical examples of helpful suggestions to assist photographers with their development and improvement. Particular congratulations go to George Sayer, Mark Stevens and Helenka Boden in the Club Class and Paul Williams, Justin Hadley and Philip Acland in the Intermediate Class for scoring a perfect 10.
