Annual Digital Competition
Members and guests of Wakefield Camera Club were excited to welcome back Robert Helliwell to judge this years Annual Digital Competition. The competition is held in two sections, Open and Applied.
The range of entries in both sections were varied and the quality excellent but Robert was able to pick out his winners and provide some excellent feedback using his questioning approach which members found to be very helpful. Robert was keen to point out the image elements he liked and balanced these comments by asking questions of the image, for example, whether a crop might have helped the image or suggesting that perhaps a vignette was just a little too strong he was able to provoke thought without criticising.
Robert was very keen to stress that he was judging the images as seen on his screen without zooming in to check the pixels and it was clear that nitpicking was just not his thing, a very welcome and refreshing change.
Congratulations to our winners and all those that entered, this was a thoroughly enjoyable and interesting evening and we thank Robert for his hard work and look forward to welcoming him back to judge a future competition.
