We had our 2nd competition for the month of March on Thursday the 27th, the theme was 'Monochrome' and it was open to all club members from beginners to advanced workers. I entered two images for the projected comp with a total of 58 images being submitted in this event. The judge Tony Duffy did not hold any images back for a second look and scored each one as they were presented. My first entry being 'Fiddlers Ferry’ scored a somewhat disappointing 16 points but there were other members with far stronger images. As we got towards the end Tony had not scored a twenty for any image, not until 'Geoff' appeared that was, he loved the detail in his features and the stare in the eyes of the portrait, he also said and was not put off that the image was offset to the left by such a large amount.
A good night which equalled the previous Thursday evening where my ‘Power Station’ image gained a top scoring 20 points!
I have set the bar high for myself for future competitions and need to carry the momentum for as long as possible!
