Second themed competition - April 24th 2019


Our final competition of the 2018-2019 season was on the theme of Animals. John Tilsley did the honours as our external judge for the competition and brought his usual acute vision and extensive knowledge to bear. His comments are always helpful. The standard of the print competition was particularly high with a good number of submissions from our members and several of the images were held back for further review before marks were awarded. The digitally projected section of the evening had more images but were not all of the same quality and the marks awarded reflected this.

2nd Open Competition March 13th 2019


A slight re-jig to our programme meant we had our second Open themed competition in March which attracted a good level of entry, both in numbers and quality. Huw Alban again stepped to the front of the room as our external judge, providing detailed and well thought out comments on each image. The high number of maximum 20's scored attests to the quality of images on the night. To see the images submitted for this competition click here to view the photos. Scores are available HERE.

Monochrome competition September 26th 2018


The 2018-2019 Season is now truly underway with our first Internal Competition of the year, the theme for this was Monochrome, which resulted in a wide variety of great photos in multitudinous shades of grey. Our Judge for the evening was Brian Tarling who delivered his insightful critique of each photograph with his usual good humoured banter and constructive suggestions on the 23 Prints and 33 Dpi's, awarding two full scores of 20 points to two prints (Shifting Sands & Minimalism -Blea Tarn) both from Meyrick Griffith-Jones. A further three scores of 20 were awarded in the DPI's, another for Meyrick (Kimmeridge) and one each for Paul Dyer (Brecon Falls) and Amanda White (Benched), so congratulations go to them for their superb photographs. Scores are available HERE. To view the photos click here.

Open Competition April 2018

We gathered on Wednesday 4th April for our final Internal Competition of the season. Our Judge for the evening was John Tilsley. There were 31 Digital Images and 23 Prints for John to cast his eye over. As always he was honest with his critique and imparted his wisdom on how each photograph could be improved if necessary. There were a surprising number of pictures which John "held back" for further deliberation, 9 Prints and 8 DPI's. These pictures were the higher scoring ones, getting 18, 19 or 20. Congratulations go to all those who had pictures held, but especially to Amanda (Cuban Chic) & Lachlan (Paul) in the DPI's and Meyrick for his print of Kimmeridge which John was mightily impressed with. Those were the recipients of a maximum 20 points!

This hair is full and beautiful when dry and human hair wigs with product. This is important because most do the curly hairstyles for summer or beach vacations and hair bundles look crazy thin when wet. There is tangling that is to be expected but pro is that although the tracks are thin the human hair wigs so I pretty much have the original volume. The hair bundles was not true to length ordered 24 and measured at 22 but I contacted the company and they fixed the issue immediately.
