Colour Prints Competition Round 2 – The results!

Well done to everyone who took part in this week’s Colour Prints (Round 2) Competition. All entrants should have received a summary of the scores by email, courtesy of our new-fangled (and rather excellent!) Photo-Entry competition tool. If you haven’t yet seen the full scores, they are now available on our website here.

In time-honoured fashion, we’ve shared a few of the judge’s favourite images from the night below. If your image appears here, bravo! If it doesn’t, don’t worry, there’ll soon be another opportunity to enjoy celebrity and fame at our next competition night! 😉



How to join our TPS 2018 Challenges

Here’s a reminder of how you can take part in one (or more!) of our TPS 2018 Challenges.

We’ve created three groups on Flickr, the photo sharing website, and all TPS members are welcome to join any (or all) of these groups.

If you don’t already have a Yahoo! account or an account on Flickr, that’s the first thing to do. Head to and click Sign Up. If you already have an account, simply Sign In.

Now, choose your group(s)! Each group has its own set of rules, so please read these carefully on the Group Page.

If you’re extra keen and would like to post one photo each day, TPS 365 is perfect for you. Go to Read the group rules then click Join Group (in the banner at the top) to request access. Any problems, email your Group Admin via this link: Dominic.

If you’d prefer a more leisurely pace, you can post one photo each week to TPS 52. Go to agree to the rules and press the Join Group button (in the banner at the top) to request access. Any problems, email your Group Admin via this link: Marie-Ange.

And finally, if daily or weekly sounds a bit too frenetic for you, you could take on our easiest challenge and post just one photo each month to TPS 12. Go to agree to the rules and press the Join Group button (in the banner at the top) to request access. Any problems, email your Group Admin via this link: Steve Elms.

Now, simply remember to take lots of photos and post your chosen image each day/week/month to your group(s).

Most importantly, remember to review your fellow group members’ photos and share your comments. It’s not a competition, just a friendly way to help us all take more, and hopefully better, photos in 2018.

Enjoy, and good luck to everyone!


PS One final photo sharing opportunity for you. We also have an ongoing Flickr Group for our ‘Out and About’ trips. You can join in at

Ahoy TPS’ers! Don’t forget, this Thursday 14th December is our festive quiz night at the White Hart Barn. For first-timers, it’s a fun evening with drinks and nibbles and a light-hearted quiz. This year’s celebrity hosts are Simon and Sarah Bedwell. We kick-off, as always, at 8pm. May the best team (or the one that cheats the most) win!

PDI Competition Round 2 – The results!

We enjoyed another fabulously photographic night last week as we went through Round 2 of our annual PDI (Projected Digital Images) Competition. And, once again, the quality of entries was very high.

In the Club competition, our judge reviewed 47 images, with five scoring a perfect 10/10. A special mention goes out to Gary Coomber, Malcolm Field, Allister Frost, Alan Tarrant and Barbara Witherington for hitting top marks.

In the Advanced group, there were 30 entries, with three being awarded top marks, with a special mention due to Sarah Bedwell, Simon Bedwell and Marcus Scott-Taggart.

Most importantly, well done to everyone who took part and we hope you learned a few new tricks to improve your photographic eye and technique.

Here, in time-honoured fashion, is a selection of the judge’s favourite images from the night. Enjoy!

Mono Prints Round 1 – The results!

Well done to everyone who took part in our Mono Prints Round 1 Competition last night. Our judge reviewed a total of 73 superb prints in the Club and Advanced Classes, reflecting a diverse range of topics and styles.

As always, the real winners are all the photographers who took part and picked up a few ideas and tips to help improve their images in future. We hope you had some “lightbulb moments” and are looking forward to Round 2 on 8th February 2018.

Our guest judge had the arduous task of picking his favourites and you’ll find a selection of the highest scoring images below.




If you’d like to review all the scores, the detailed score sheet is now available here.

Well done once again to all our Club and Advanced Class photographers. Great work!
