The Club and Intermediate Print competition rounds got off to a flying start last night with judge Tony Oliver. Tony had closed the Beginner and Intermediate print season back in March and it was good to have him back. He’s a member of the Salisbury Camera Club, holds his ARPS, CPAGB and BPE2* – this last being an award for images included in the British Photographic Exhibitions. Tony is also the President of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation. He makes a positive judge, with constructive comments, and very much enjoys a picture with a story or a little mystery, yet even handed cross the genres.
The highest scoring images of the evening in Club class were very different. Richard Ryder scored two 10’s, both with portraits – if of rather different subjects. Terence Powling’s 10 was for a ‘treated’ street-scape, while Helenka Boden’s macro winner was of a of a fly on a flower.
In intermediate, Joan Barnham also took two tens, one a landscape from the Dingle Peninsular, the second a street view, while Ed Feldmanis’s scene for Hong Kong Harbour at Night scored 10 and just pipped Angela Acland’s New York city view at 9.5.
