The competition was judged by Martin Patten LRPS CPAGB BPE2*, a professional photographer based in Hertfordshire, the past President and current Trophy Secretary of Watford Camera Club, and a previous visitor to LBPC.
He explained at the start that the current thinking of the CACC judges is that an average camera club image should get a score of 16. This necessarily implies a wider spread of marks than we may have seen in the past. He undertook, however, to explain why he awarded the scores that he did.
As usual, the entries displayed a wide variety of subjects, approaches and styles – seascapes, landscapes, cityscapes, snowscapes, sunrises, sunsets, architecture, portraits, candid/street, travel, wildlife (animals, birds, insects), flowers, colour, monochrome, and more.
Each entry was marked out of 20. And, in the event, Martin’s scores ranged from 14 to 20.
Marks for this competition count towards the season’s Print Championship (Sections One and Two) and the Digital Image Championship (Sections One and Two) – see the Internal competitions, Rules for entry page on the website for details CLICK HERE.
