The much-travelled Stephen Coyne is a new member but not new to club photography. His entries into our competition this week were so striking that it was more a case of which one would be most likely to win rather than wondering if the judge would favour them. In the end it was That cigar moment which caught his eye. This time the pictures were not prints but something we call PDIs, they are just the form in which you see the photos on your phone or camera back – we project them up to 6feet across on a top grade projector and they look amazing!
One of our members had a print “highly recommended” in the Keele Three Counties this week. The exhibition is on now in the Chancellors Building, Keele University. See banner below.
NEXT – Our next meeting at Crewe is our Print Annual on 2nd March. Our members have produced some absolutely top rate work this year and we are proud to have it on display in this competition.
NEWSFLASH! Crewe PS member Wallace Baxter LRPS has won a PAGB bronze medal for his photo "Splits on the beam" which was part of the Crewe PS entry in the Great British Cup 2017. The presentation was made on Thursday (9 Feb) by our chairman John Royle (R). The club entry also achieved 6th place in the competition overall. Full individual marks.

Les Simpson has been investigating the mystery of the Victorian ‘Crewe Circle’. Read about Les’ research and other documents on the case here.
The Monthly Forum Theme for February is Portraiture and it is leading to some very interesting discussion.
The L&CPU are to adopt the 1600×1200 standard for PDIs NOW! They have now decided to project at 1400, so 1400s will not
be at a disadvantage – see NEWS and comment here

Ian writes with authority and clarity and we expect the article to be of wide interest.
