I missed last night’s TPS meeting so find myself at a distinct disadvantage when tasked with the write-up of the night. Dominic tells me the evening passed without incident. So, with no major dramas, glitches, or even streakers on the pitch to report, I’ll stick to sharing the cold hard facts of the scores, the overall winners, and your wonderful images.
There were some gorgeous photos on display for our guest judge, Peter Merry, to review. I’m constantly impressed by the quality and variety of images we produce at our special little club. Congratulations to everyone who had a go and I hope our judge gave you some constructive feedback to inspire your next photographic adventure.
And so to the scores… There are plenty of big numbers on the scoresheets, including eight, yes eight!, perfect tens. Susan Potter and Andrea Watson hit the high note in Club Class, Tim Baugh, Chris Fenton and Jeff Vianna reached perfection in Intermediate Class, and in Advanced Class the clever clogs were Sarah Bedwell, Marie-Ange Bouchard, and Jon Cowdock. Give yourselves a Covid-secure pat on the back!
The individual image scores are available here.
But this was also the final round in our 3-stage PDI competition so we also have some overall winners to announce:
Winner: Sheila Tattershaw (28.0 points)
Joint Runners up: Chris Cumming and Rehana Uddin (27.0 points)
Winner: Jeff Vianna (30.0 points)
Joint Runners up: Chris Fenton (27.5 points)
Winner: Peter O’Hare (29.5 points)
Joint Runners up: Jon Cowdock (29.0 points)
And a special mention must go to Jeff Vianna in Intermediate Class for achieving the stunning feat of getting a perfect score in every round. That’s a pretty special achievement, well done Jeff!
The final league tables are available here.
But I know you’re really here for the photos. So here are the judge’s favourite images from last night. All of these photos scored 9 or more out of 10. You can see their individual scores by hovering over each image. Or click to enlarge to take a closer look. You won’t be disappointed!
FAB-U-LOUS! Thanks to everyone for sharing their talent and inspiring so many others to get out and capture some photographic magic. Our next competition will be a welcome return to colour prints on 21st January. Dust off that printer, it will be submission time before you know it.
Next week at TPS things look set to get a little festive with our annual quiz. The word on the street is that this could be the most ambitious, dramatic and exciting quiz we’ve ever hosted, or I might have just made that up to build some tension! Either way, dig out your festive sweater and Santa hat, and we’ll look forward to seeing you all on Thursday 17th December at 8pm for our Big Christmas Quiz!
PS Jeff will be buying the first (virtual) round 😉
