The Last Few Days

Hi everybody,

Well hasn’t it been a busy time for the club. First we had the ‘Decisive Moment’ PDI competition judged by Alan Davey. There was a good entry from all of you with plainly very differing ideas on the interpretation of the theme. Some of us had a good old ding dong of a discussion as to whose idea was right, but in the end no general consensus was achieved and we all begged to differ. ‘Although I know I’m right really!!’ However well done to those who scored a Double Top, Paul burgess and Peter Tullock with Paul taking 1st place, Peter taking joint 2nd with John Wheely wih Clive Moody and Keith Urro sharing 3rd. Some real thought was used to produce and select the images shown on the night, giving the judge a hard time, who by the way did a splendid job of reviewing, critiquing and marking on time allowing the meeting to close at 9.30, job done, Thanks Alan.

Secondly, 6 of us ventured across to Exeter for the WCPF, DPI competition on Sunday to represent Tavistock Camera Club competing against 56 other clubs.

Despite our initial misgivings we performed much better than expected, finishing the day with 191 points putting us into 26th position overall, with the winner, Bristol coming 1st with 223 points, 2nd was Dorchester with 219 and joint 3rd Torbay club and F8 club with 213 points.

Our near rivals, Launceston did even better with Joint 9th place on 202 points. However they didn’t take home any honours, where as we brought home one Highly Commended Certificate. Modesty prevents me from saying who……………Oh, all right, it was me. I couldn’t be more chuffed of my little doggies. It was a grand day out with an excellent lunch at midday and home by 6.00.

Well done to all those who submitted entries and to the selectors for their hard work, but a huge thank you goes to our competitions secretary, John Wheely for his immense effort in putting the whole entry together.

Let’s do it all again next year and see if we can perform even better.

Don’t forget the upcoming Devon Battle where we need a good selection of transport inspired blurred images, to see examples go to the clubs Dropbox page.

Our next meeting is a talk given by Chris Marsham, a Travel Photographer of the Year winner, so come along and see what Holiday pics can look like; I know I’m dead when he meets me.

See you all soon, I leave you with my doggie picture.

Garry

Chairman
