PDI Competition No.1




Judge: Darren Pullman

That was an enjoyable start to the season with a wealth of images on show, a dam burst of images being stored up over the summer. 

Our judge was exercising the full breadth of marks from 5 to 10+ which drew a few gasps to start with but things soon settled down. The comments as always helpful, here’s a few I picked up, I’m sure others will have more. 

Some numbers from the evening:


  1. 3 is the magic number (items in a photo)

  2. Take 5 shots in a row (slightly varying composition and borders)

  3. And talking of borders, 1 pixel is plenty for a border key line (but sometimes 2 pixels is OK. And use the colour to accentuate one of you 3 items.) 

And whatever you do keep that horizon horizontal !

Well done to our winners, Martin Wilkins and Mandy Byatt.
