Geoff Reader kindly stepped in at quite short notice when our original judge became unavailable. Geoff gave us a very interesting evening, conducting the whole thing with a calm authority, he was encouraging, exercised good club standards in assessing the prints and made some suggestions about how some processing problems could be tackled. It made us all look forward to Geoff’s talk, already booked for nearer the end of the season.
There was ample high quality work on offer because the prints were selected by the authors from the entries they made in the three league competitions held this year.
In the end Geoff had the three prints seen above on the print stand from which to pick his overall winner and it went to Paul Hill’s Afon Lloer. The other winners were: Bob Brown for Waxwing feeding on berries (Nature) and John Royle for The way downtown (Mono). Congratulations to all the award winners.
We are hoping to get the three authors to tell us more about how they captured these shots and processed them.
