Back in February, we hosted our round of the SAPA competition against Boscombe Camera Club. We welcomed some of their members (who came to keep an eye on proceedings), and the Judge, Jim Pascoe, had come from Highcliffe & Infinity Camera Club.
With 12 prints from each club to judge, followed by the same in projected images, Jim warned us of a good spread of marks, adding that on first look around there were no poor images, they were all a good standard.
After holding back 3 images in the print section, and then 1 in the projected the scores were totaled giving Blandford a lead of 80 to 78 for Boscombe in the print section, and 81 All in the projected, the projected was then awarded to Blandford as they held the most prints scoring 10.
The recurring theme during Jim’s critique was the importance of light, and he suggested some images would have benefited from a little more (breathing) space.
