Here’s a synopsis of our evening evaluating our mounted 2022 Exhibition prints. Our 2022 Chair, Keith B, opened the meeting and made various announcements that will be covered in his monthly Chairman’s Chatter email. Keith then presented Richard Clemons with his certificate for last year’s Exhibition, as Richard had been unable to attend an evening when certificates for last year’s Exhibition were awarded. Note – click on any image to see the image in greater detail.
Mike and Judy Smith from Sheffield Photographic society had been able to view our mounted Exhibition prints in advance. They had clearly spent a great deal of time examining and discussing the merits of every print before this evening’s meeting. Then during the meeting, as each print was displayed, either Judy or Mike gave carefully focussed positive advice and comments in relation to each mounted Exhibition print. Keith invited Mike and Judy to make a presentation to the club next year – I do hope that they will be able to visit in 2023, so we can see some of their (what I know to be) stunning images.
And here are some of the prints that gained awards, as they were placed on our display stands. On the left, below, the open part of the Exhibition, followed by the themed section (Impressions of reality) to the right of the screen.
