2018 Round 1 Bi-Monthly Results February 12 2018

Throughout the year SYPC have a schedule of 6 bi-monthly competitions where members can optionally submit 2 prints and/or 2 digital images. All the bi-monthly competitions provide an excellent opportunity for members to hear an experienced judge assess their prowess, both technically and artistically.

Adrian Herring (ARPS DPAGB) was the external judge for the 1st of our 6 Bi-Monthly 2018 Competitions. It was obvious that Adrian had put a lot of work into reviewing and preparing for the evening – this resulted in an excellent narrative describing the best bits of the image and offering constructive feedback for improvement, all of which was much appreciated by our membership. Adrian critiqued and constructively commented on 74 images (28 prints and 46 digital images). Adrian opened the meeting by explaining to the membership how much he had enjoyed  reviewing all our work and that we had some excellent images submitted and his job was really difficult making choices
