The first competition of the season was judged on Wednesday 2nd October and it was an interesting evening with more than a few laughs along the way. Patricia Tutt gave a thorough and expert appraisal of each image and offered generous and detailed advice where she could.
Before she started, Patricia explained that she always tries to understand why a particular image was taken and why the photographer arrived at the final composition, exposure and processing. She also praised the quality of many of the images and said it was a challenge to decide on the final placings.
Congratulations to Dave Salter who won both the print and digital sections with two striking images of Liverpool, and a special mention to Jason Quayle whose three digital entries all scored 19 points and were placed or Highly Commended.
