Colour Prints Competition Round 1

On Thursday 12th October we hosted Round 1 of our 2017-18 Colour Prints Competition. The hall was packed (we even ran out of chairs!) and we were delighted to see so many TPS members taking part in the competition. Many of our new members got into the game too, bravely mastering the tricky tasks of printing and mounting their photos to competition standards.

The quality of prints on display was superb and our guest judge, Rob Bonfield, really had his work cut out reviewing so many images and picking his favourites.

Congratulations to all our members for sharing their fabulous prints. You really are a talented bunch!

Here’s a selection of some of the judge’s favourite prints from the Club Class:

 

And, finally, here are some of the judge’s favourites from the Advanced Class:

The full scores can be downloaded from here on our website.

Well done everyone! Coming up this week (19th Oct) we have a guest speaker, Andy Skillen, with his illustrated talk ‘Walking with Bears’.

And our next competition will be Natural History (prints & PDIs) on 26th Oct. Time to get snapping!

Competition Results – PDIs Round 1

We saw some wonderful images last night at our TPS PDI Competition (Round 1). There was a rich variety and it was especially exciting to see so many entries from our new members. Well done to everyone who took part!

Whether you agreed or disagreed with the judge is not important, what really matters is that you hopefully got some inspiration for your next photographic adventure and picked up a few tips on how do even better next time.

We’ll be featuring some of the photos on our Instagram and Facebook pages in future, but for now, here’s a reminder of the seven amazing pictures which all scored a perfect ’10’ from our guest judge Graham Johnston ARPS DPAGB. Maybe you’ll find inspiration in some of these:

ADVANCED (Philips Cup)

Brilliant work TPS’ers! Our next competition is Colour Prints Round 1 on 12th October, which means that correctly formatted .jpg files of your entries need to be with Brian, our Internal Competition Secretary, by midnight on Monday 9th October.

You’d better get out shooting!
