Religion Competition Results 28th January, 2021

This evening we welcomed David Neve over Zoom to judge our “Religion” themed PDI competition. In his own inimitable way, David was able to pass comments on each image, advising how to strengthen images by judicious cropping or taking the image from a different viewpoint. David also pointed out instances where a particular image suggested various animals to him, or reminded him of a scene in a film. In total, there were 41 images, covering many different interpretations of the “Religion” theme. Below are the images selected as 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, and also the highest scoring novice entry.

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
