2018 – Round 5 Bi-Monthly Results – October 8th 2018

Throughout the year SYPC have a schedule of 6 bi-monthly member competitions.

Julie Kay – was our Round 5  external judge for the 5th. of our 6 Bi-Monthly 2018 Competitions. Julie was not only new to SYPC but also relatively new to the judging circuit. Like many other judges Julie was extremely well  prepared and her relative ‘newness’ as a judge  was NOT obvious. Julie gave a professional and well thought through critique of all our Prints and Digital Images.

Julie critiqued and commented on 78 images (28 prints and 50 digital images). Her comments and suggestions were well received particularly her advice on Composition and the best positioning of subjects within the frame.

Thank you Julie Kay – we look forward to your return to SYPC
