2021/22 Exhibition - Judges Feedback

Friday last marked the last formal event of the 2021-2020 season as members welcomed Anita Kirkpatrick from Enniskillen Camera Club . Anita had been appointed as the judge for the annual exhibition submissions and was invited to provide her feedback .

During the season the club had witnessed many fantastic events and talks from around the world and had attracted outstanding speakers both local .the UK and from as far away as Africa .

Though it would be everyones wish that by September a full return to the club premises will be possible never the less by means of Zoom the club has benefited by being able to consider the work of practitioners who could not be brought to the attention of members in normal times.

Anita commenced her deliberations which was to reveal a cornucopia ,indeed a smorgasbord of image making in the the various themes in the exhibition format .

Chairmans Challenge the theme was flowers. General Colour, General Mono, Landscape Colour, and Landscape Mono, Digital Projection General, Digital Projection Landscape, Digital Projection Portrait, Portrait Colour, Portrait Mono.

Anita spoke briefly giving her advice on every image in the above categories, and made reference to what she liked and at times where improvements could be made .

Birds, animals wild and domestic were featured as was architecture, sport, travel, Seascape, still life and abstract were all in evidence.

In each category Anita revealed her choice of the winning and placed images, which had given their authors their prizes and awards which had be revealed during the annual club dinner the previous week.

Once again this year all the images will be displayed on the club web pages though for next year a return to a public display of prints as in past years is hoped for. The opening night of the exhibition is always much valued by members who gather to to enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles, and view the outstanding work of the club.
