This week Eddy Lane returned to Warminster to deliver his assessment of our Competition No. 4 images.
ARPS, DPAGB, former chairman of Calne Camera Club and former President of the WCPF, Eddy is superbly qualified to give his opinion on our work. Eddy achieves the right balance of being honest about the good and less good attributes of an image but still be encouraging to the author. The suggestions on how an image might be improved were very welcome and members appreciated that they were being helped towards a better mark.
We should all know by now that Eddy dislikes big areas of white in an image if it’s just part of the background (have to agree with you there Eddy) and bilious greens can easily be improved by using software to adjust the green channel.
Being a long-time friend of Warminster Camera Club the atmosphere was relaxed with cheerful banter between Eddy and the club members.
Either our photography has improved wholesale or Eddy was in generous mood (I like to think it’s the former) as the 19s and 20s were in abundance.
Peter’s clean sweep of 20s with his three nature images was well deserved, but there were plenty of other members who featured in the top scorers.
Unusually there were more prints than DPIs in this competition and it was good to be able to browse all the prints during the interval.
Kathryn ran the raffle in her usual efficient manner but my waistline wishes I hadn’t come home with chocolates!
In summary, it was a really good evening with plenty banter but we also got an interesting and educational assessment of our images.
