The second internal club competition of the 2019-20 season took place on Wednesday 16 October.

The set subject, for both prints and projected digital images (PDIs), was “’The Colour Yellow’.  The entries displayed an imaginative and creative assortment of subjects – including flowers, insects, lemons, peppers, wellies, fishing net, and various forms of transport – as well as a variety of styles and approaches – including still life, fine art, nature, landscape, and travel.

Our judge for this competition was Dave Hipperson.  Dave has been a keen photographer for over 40 years and a CACC (Chilterns Association of Camera Clubs) judge for several years.  He is also a member of the Park Street Camera Club in St Albans.

The Programme notes and judging criteria added to this “Definition: Any photograph in which the predominant colour / focal interest of the image is the colour Yellow.  Description: This could be a lone daffodil in a field, a bowl of custard (not recommended), fruits or vegetables, a whole variety of subjects are available.  This is another opportunity to think outside the proverbial box (compositing?).  As long as the main subject is yellow, it’s a contender.”

Dave prefaced his judging by mentioning that images would be marked down if they were “insufficiently yellow”!

Each entry was marked out of twenty.  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.
