It is always a pleasure to have Tillman over to judge any of our competitions. He interprets the images so well, points out things that make them successful, and always has the right balance of praise and criticism to please everyone. This makes the evening very enjoyable and enlightening.
Martin McGing’s “Fredau” was always going to be the winner in the Colour General section, but PaulHill took the other top awards in Nature and Mono. Paul’s winning mono was described as “sinister” and we all concurred that the juxtaposition of the two characters, the strange “Metropolis” feel of the street and the ambiguous nature of the whole thing was completely gripping.
In fact, having written that I had better include it in this item (see left). Fredau is picture of the week on the front page.
It was another great show of Crewe’s talent. The results can be seen here and a gallery will follow in a day or two.
