Well done to everyone who took part in Round 1 of our 2019-20 TPS Colour Prints Competition last night. We received so many entries we had to limit Advanced Class members to just one print each so we were still able to review all of our Club Class prints. Yes, all 49 of them!
There were some superb prints on display, with the favourites being selected by our guest judge, Sheena Rogers.
As always I’ve shared all the images that were awarded 9 or more marks in the galleries below, but a special well done is first due to our 10-point superstars:
Clever clogs 10-point superstars! Jan Yardley, Malcolm Field, Dominic Murtagh, Jeff Vianna, Marie-Ange Bouchard, John Nathan, and Clare Pickett
Well done to everyone! We hope you picked up some tips and ideas for your next competition entries.
Next week we’ll be welcoming some very photogenic reptiles for a special TPS photoshoot. Full details are in our Events Programme. So, dust off your camera, charge up your batteries and look forward to creating some animal magic!
Our new TPS competition season kicked off in style last night with the first round of our PDI (Projected Digital Images) competition, expertly judged by Paul Graber LRPS.
We had so many entries this year our Competition Secretary elected to restrict all entrants to just one image, but this still left us with 38 Club Class and 18 Advanced Class photos to enjoy.
As our guest judge commented, the quality of the entries was very high, giving him a difficult task of picking out his favourites. If you took part, well done for getting involved. The scores are always interesting, but the most important thing for us all is that we took time to carefully consider each image and, hopefully, learned something new to help improve our own photography skills.
The full scores and (very early!) league tables are now available from our Results page.
I’ve collated all the images that scored a magnificent 9 points or more and shared them in the galleries below. Enjoy!
On Thursday 03 October, we’ll be meeting in the Godstone Baptist Church Hall, next to the Shell Service Station. On arrival, take the alleyway to the right-hand side of the main entrance, and enter the hall via the side door. DON’T FORGET: Bring along a few (2 or 3) images on a USB stick for Marcus and John’s Friendly Photo Critique.
Now get out with your camera and take some photos!
Our rescheduled Mono Prints Round 2 competition went ahead without a hitch yesterday and we enjoyed seeing some fabulous photography from our talented TPS members.
Our judge, Raymond Bridges, pored over the entries and, as usual, picked out his favourites. We hope everyone enjoyed his commentary and helpful advice on how to tweak or improve our images for future competitions.
The scores are now published in full on our Competition Results pages, where you’ll also find the updated league tables for both Club and Advanced competitions.
Well done to everyone who took part. Now, sit back, and enjoy some of the judge’s favourite images from the night.
Our next competition night will be on 14th March when we’ll host the third and final round of our PDI competition. For members, the entry deadline via PhotoEntry will be Sunday 10th March 2019 – don’t forget!
Well done to everyone who took part; we enjoyed seeing some stunning images. Our judge, Bob Webzell ARPS EFIAP, had a busy night reviewing both PDIs and Prints, and the winning photographers and their images were:
PDI Winner: Barbara Witherington
Print Winner: Geoff Spriegel
Lovely work by some very talented TPS members! Isn’t the natural world incredible:-)
Our next internal competition will be Round 1 of the Monochrome Prints on 15th November and will be judged by Ken Scott ARPS. The deadline for PrintEntry submissions is Sunday 11th November. Don’t be late!
A big WELL DONE to our 44 TPS members who took part in Round 1 of our PDI (Projected Digital Images) Competition on 28th September. Our guest judge, Tim Morland ARPS, had a huge task reviewing and scoring all the entries and we’re very grateful for his expert analysis and advice.
As we’ve come to expect at TPS, the standard of images was very good and seven images were selected by Tim for the magical 10/10 treatment! A well-deserved mention for perfect scores goes out to Anthea Hearne-Dudman, Roger Matthews, Seb Springbett, Barbara Witherington, Sarah Bedwell, Colvin Hazzard and John Nathan.
But, as always, the most important thing on a competition night is that we enjoyed seeing a huge diversity of photographic styles and techniques and picked up some helpful tips and advice from our guest judge.
Our next competition night is just around the corner on 11th October, when we’ll be reviewing Round 1 of Colour Prints. For members, the deadline for PhotoEntry submissions is SUNDAY 7TH OCTOBER and, remember, you must bring your mounted prints to the White Hart Barn by 7.45pm on the competition night.
Next week we’ll meet in the hall behind the Godstone Baptist Church, right next to the Shell Service Station, with our guest speaker Drew Gibson sharing expert advice for Formula 1 and motorsport Photography.
And finally, in time-honoured fashion, here’s a selection of the judge’s favourite PDI Round 1 images, each of which scored 9 or more points. Well done to everyone!
