The Colour Prints (CP2) competition was held on Monday, 5th November at Carshalton CC when the judge was David Eastley. As expected there was a varied subject matter, although a lot of butterfly images plus a few tree shots. David gave a very good commentary saying why he liked certain images and the reasons why some images didn't score highly.  

The winners were Beckenham with 73.5 marks (4 x 10's + 9.5), 2nd Orpington on 69, with Greenwood in 6th place on 60.5. Our top marks were 'Snowfall' by Sue Potter (8.5) and 8's were scored by 'Salt fish' by Alan Russ, 'Dusty teasel' by Berenice Chan and 'Tobermory' by Bob Edwards.

Our first Projected Digital Image competition, PD2 was held on Wednesday, 22nd October at South London P. S. with six other competing clubs and our judge for the evening was Martin Faiers.

It wasn't a high scoring competition with the winners Orpington PS scoring 68, with Carshalton in second place on 66; with Greenwood scoring 56.5 and 5.5 marks behind South London on 62 marks.

Our best image was a well captured shot of the 'Red Arrows' by Bob Edwards which received a 9 and a Certificate with the best of thge rest all receiving a mark of 7.

The club will now compete in the Plate 2 competition on Friday, 1st February at Selsdon CC when the judge will be Andy Smith LRPS CPAGB.
