Members may be interested to hear the result of last week’s friendly battle (an oxymoron if ever there was one!) against Queen’s Park Camera Club in Glasgow. This is an annual event on a home/way basis, and this year it was our turn to be hosts. It is always a good social occasion and the result is less important than the exchange of comments and views on photography.
The competition is for 15 prints and 15 PDIs from each club. This year’s judge was Duncan McEwan from Paisley Colour Camera Club. Duncan is an excellent judge, and his comments are always helpful. Wednesday night was no exception, and it is a shame that the event was attended by so few. Those members who did not attend certainly missed a masterclass.
Prints EPS 256 QPCC 230
PDIs EPS 255 QPCC 234
The overall score was therefore 511 – 464 in favour of EPS.
The rather large margin of the win perhaps flatters EPS, but as Duncan said himself, there were excellent images from both sides. We are also pleased that no fewer than 29 members represented EPS, indicating the strength in depth of our club, and many of the images were from new members.
