2016 Calendar photo selection – Judge Jean Brumby &
Ken – Entries: 33
Clive welcomed both Jean & Ken to the meeting.
Jean commenced by stating that judging photos for a Calendar is completely different to judging individual photos,
you have to look at a photo a month with a calendar: a winning competition photo may be good, but not for a month in a calendar
or on a wall!
Jean commented that with
the quality of your photos it will be difficult to find faults
The object of the calendar is to include photos from both member groups.
Encouragingly critiquing each photo in turn Jean selected all the photos for the relative calendar months; this
was then followed by the selection of the most suitable photo for the month.
10.50 am. Coffee Break.
Resuming after coffee break Jean displayed all the photos with the same theme asking the meeting for a final decision.
The Final result.
