Last Wednesday, we were hosts for the annual Four-Way Battle and what an interesting evening it was! Unfortunately, Glenrothes Camera Club was unable to take part this year but the three remaining clubs, Dundee, St Andrews and Perthshire Photographic Societies enjoyed an exciting contest.
The judge was Guy Phillips from Helensburgh and he started the evening by congratulating the competitors for presenting such an incredibly high standard of images. Each club entered 6 mono prints, 6 colour prints and 8 digital images. A camera was set up so that the prints could also be projected onto a screen. The prints were put on display around the room once the judge had commented on them and everyone had the chance to have a closer look at them during the break.
There were many excellent photos, with several of them receiving high scores of 20, 19 and 18 points. It was a close competition and congratulations go to the members of St Andrews Photographic Society who won by one point! Dundee PS was second and Perthshire PS was not too far behind. Overall, it was a very worthwhile evening and a lot was to be learned from listening to Guy’s comments about each photo and why he awarded the scores that he did.
