First competition of the season was entitled Summer Challenge with a theme of “Fences”. Our own Competition Officer, John Tillotson CPAGB PPSA, presided in his debut as a judge. Those attending were treated to a great variety of images, and John appraised the submissions offering interesting comments and occasional advice on areas for improvement.
Showing some of the diversity of fencing in our countryside and many different perspectives and compositions, it was an evening of outstanding images: “Commended” were two images by Alan Roberts, “Highly Commended” were images by Kath Brown, John Williams, Steve Prior and Frank Kirkby, but the Winner of the Summer Challenge was “The Barbed Wire Variety” by Sandy Urquhart. While admitting it was a personal choice, John praised its simplicity of message, sharp definition and composition.
