The annual Points Cup Competition kicked off with a good amount of images in each section. 24 prints, with 8 monochrome and 16 colour photographs to start the evening and after the break in the pdi section there were 23 images for judging.
Sid Jones had joined us from Dorchester to judge, he started by commenting that for a small club we had a good standard of work. The evening progressed with Sid’s anecdotes peppered through his thorough critique of each image. There was a wide range of subject matter, and some useful comments about why images were particularly successful or what may have improved them.
