Like other clubs, we were unable to hold a face–to–meeting due to the Covid-19 lockdown, thus we once again turned to technology for this month's competition. We held a Zoom meeting with Keith R Barber CPAGB LRPS FIScT from Swinton & District PS as our judge. From the fifty images submitted, Keith chose Eddie Leach's Grandma's House as his winner and said that there were several others in close contention. Congratulations to Eddie and the other high scorers, commiserations to the other entrants and thanks to Keith for his time and expertise in making this competition interesting and successful.

With meetings still suspended by the Covid-19 lockdown, we once again turned to technology to hold this month's competition.

The six top scoring images can be seen above; congratulations to the high scorers, commiserations to the other entrants and thanks to Nick for his time and expertise in making this competition interesting and successful.

With meetings suspended by the Covid-19 lockdown, SPC, in common with other photo clubs, turned to video to continue with events and were lucky to secure the help of Ove Alexander from Stockport PS to judge our May competiton, which was confined to DPIs. There were thirty–five images submitted this month and Ove considered and commented on each one, before concluding that his winner was Roy Rodger's Red Rose.

Congratulations to Roy, commiserations to the other entrants and thanks to Ove for his time and expertise in making this competition interesting and successful.

On The Case

We had an entertaining and instructive evening listening to and learning from Mike Lawrence, who judged the seventeen prints and thirty-nine DPIs entered into this month's competitions. Eddie Leach swept the board, gaining maximum points in the DPIs (Banded Damsel and Alice) and winning the print section. Keith Rawsthorne's Approaching Storm, Windermere came second in the prints. Some of the other results can be seen above.

Congratulations to the winners, commiserations to all the other entrants and a big thanks to Mike for giving his time and expertise. Everyone gained a lot from the evening.
