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 and photographer assess their prowess, both technically and artistically
Peter Weaver (APAGB, CPAGB and LRPS) – was our Round 2 external judge for the 2nd. of our 6 Bi-Monthly 2018 Competitions. Peter has been a great friend to SYPC. Over many years Peter has visited us either as a judge or presenter of his own work . He is always welcome and clearly an excellent photographer. Peter opened the meeting by explaining to the membership his recent exploits and places visited for his own photography. His relaxed and often humorous manner was pleasant but at the same time it was obvious that Peter had put a lot of work into reviewing and preparing for the evening.
The result was an excellent and constructive narrative describing each image and always offering constructive feedback for improvement. Peter critiqued and commented on 82 images (32 prints and 50 digital images).
Thank you Peter – hopefully we will see you again very soon.
