Judge snowed under with entries

April 29, 2018

Photographic judge, Brian Northmore, who is a member of the Plymouth Camera Club did an excellent job of judging the 5th Open Competition for the Dawlish and Teignmouth Camera Club.


With over 67 prints to consider – a surprising number of which were of wintry scenes from the recent ‘Beast from the East’ - Brian was literally snowed under with entries.  Like a true professional, he gave each one a personal critique with praise for composition and story-telling, and, where appropriate, suggestions for how a photo could be even stronger or more pleasing to the eye.  


Brian, who has an impressive gallery of work himself in landscape photography used his self deprecating humour to highlight how he would love to take certain pictures, but couldn’t do them as well as some he judged on the night.


Ken Holland from the Camera Club finished the evening by quoting the qualities and skills that are necessary to be a judge – enthusiastic, entertaining, constructive and concise - and how Brian had ticked every box.
