3 Way Battle 2019

On Wednesday 20th February, Crosthwaite Parish Rooms in Keswick hosted the annual 3 Way Battle between Penrith, Carlisle and Keswick Camera Clubs.  It’s a friendly annual contest, full of good-natured banter, and consists of 15 PDI images from each Club, which this year was judged by Richard Speirs DPAGB, BPE2* of Morton CC.

Penrith have always felt it’s important to enter images from a wide range of members, including beginners, and we only allow 1 image per author.  A small committee then chooses which photographs will represent our Club and this year’s entries can be seen below:

 

And the winners were:

  • 1st Keswick with 266 points.
  • 2nd Penrith with 254 points.
  • 3rd Carlisle with 246 points.

The Judge’s favourite image of the evening was ‘The Aracari and The Fly’, by a member of Keswick PS.

Our very own JDT won the raffle, bringing home a small book of Ansel Adams pictures, and a good night was had by all!

For those club members chosen to take part in the Battle your image scores can be found in the Members’ Section of our website.
