The Start of a New Year

It was the start of a new competition year this January and to kick things off we had a judge, Trevor Rudkin LRPS, to run the rule over our efforts in the Open category and the set subject of “Hands”. Trevor had been to us before to give us tips on what makes a good competition photo: tips which some of us had rather forgotten! Nevertheless, he gave constructive and helpful pointers while talking about our work.

A new year brought little change to fortunes in the open as the current cup holder won again, making it an impressive five in a row for Mark Blaber with his shot “Can He See Us?”

In the set subject of “Hands” we saw several takes on playing cards as well as actual hands in various configurations or activities. The winning entry was judged to be “Hand Fitting” by Phil Roseblade, which combined both human hands and the hands of a watch face.
