We sure had a bumper crop of entries! 26 members entered the Winter Salon, with all but four using the online system.
There were 40 digital entries – a record, as can be seen from the graph below showing entries since the start of 2010. It’s also very pleasing to see the number of entries from the Novice Grade this year.
40 digital images plus 33 prints gave our hard-working judge Murry Cave 73 images to carefully consider. Many thanks Murry, for all the effort you put in.
There were around 30 members at the meeting last Monday night to see all the images and hear Murry’s comments on them – this took quite a long time, so unfortunately we didn’t get the chance to see any of Murry’s work – particularly his nature photography. That will have to wait for another day ….
The gallery of most of the 17 images awarded either honours or highly commended is now available on our website (see GALLERIES in the top menu for all of them).
Of particular note is the appearance in this gallery for the first time by new members David Blyth (a Highly Commended for his first entered image), and Barry Culling (an Honours and two Highly Commended for his first Salon), as well as an Honours in Novice Print for Gavin Klee’s image – well done!
