Third PDI Merit Competition – Judge: Mike Warren

A very warm welcome was extended to Mike Warren, our judge for the evening from Steyning Camera Club, who was able to ‘stand in’ at short notice. He had seen our images well in advance, and prepared detailed and constructive comments on each one. Once again we had a very successful PDI Competition with some excellent images, which were to a very high standard, and Mike commented on the improvement of entries since his last visit to the club. The beginners were judged first, followed by the Intermediate and Advanced categories and Mike gave some extremely useful and encouraging comments and suggestions throughout his critique. An added advantage to the evening, was that Mike was able to take some images and show ‘before and after’ compositions in relation to the suggestions he had made, which was so extremely useful and members were able to see the improvements on screen. This of course is an added bonus of using zoom technology.

Out of the many high quality images, Mike chose these 3 as the best.

Best in the Advanced category, and Best of Evening:
‘I am safe in my Bubble’ by Mirza Khurrum Baig

Best in the Intermediate category:
‘Light’ by Dave Tanner

Best in the Beginner category:
‘Guardian of Dartmoor’ by Grant Lawrence


Thanks to Kathie Bignell our Programme Secretary for arranging the evening.  Thanks also to Mike Ghibaldan and Rob Ryan for ensuring the smooth running of images, and to Liz Farrow and Vince Knight for announcing and recording the scores.
