Unusually, we had more Prints vs DPI’s to be judged, on this the last time Robin will judge for us, as he is retiring.
With his gentle humour Robin worked through the 26 prints using a score range of 6.5 – 10, and gave a good commentary throughout of what he saw and what he liked and didn’t like, leaving the photographers with food for thought.
Only two were awarded the top score of 10, both in the colour section one a vibrant still life of some lilies by Norman Carey and the other a more sombre but atmospheric steamy shed complete with steam train by Graham Hutton. Robin also awarded 9.5 to Colin Whitelock for ‘Lena’ a lively and colourful portrait.
In the monochrome section the highest score of 9.5 was awarded to a moody landscape by Colin Cross, closely followed on 9 marks by Marilyn Peddle with an image taken across Whitby Bay.
With 24 dpi’s for judging again only 2 receiving top scores, a landscape by Graham Hutton and a detailed portrait of an orangutan by Glynis Larter-Witcher the next highest score of 9 being awarded to Pat Catley for a view of Corfe Castle and Marilyn Peddle for a delightful image of a harvest mouse.
The final list of top scores were as follows;
10 – Norman Carey, Graham Hutton
9.5 – Colin Whitelock
9 – Marilyn Peddle, Ian Ferris
9.5 – Colin Cross
9 – Marilyn Peddle
10 – Graham Hutton, Glynis Larter-Witcher
