Selsey Camera Club

SCPF Print League Judging Night

Fifteen club members along with two members from Woolston Camera Club attended the third judging round of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation’s Division 6 print league. In this, our eight chosen prints competed for the third time against those of the Woolston and Dorset Light clubs. (Previous judging sessions had been held in those clubs).

The evening began with a warm welcome extended to Paul O’Toole, our judge for the evening, and got underway with each of the prints being placed into the lightbox by Andrew Kendon, followed by constructive criticism by Paul. Over the course of the session, Paul commented upon aspects such as a picture’s composition, along with its sharpness, lighting and colour saturation. Where applicable, Paul also approved of leading lines taking the observer’s eye to the subject of a picture, and in the case of a picture featuring water, he looked for contrast and structure within that part of the picture rather than an over exposed, washed out area.

Our Next Meeting

Featured Photographer Martin Thomas

At our next meeting at 7.30pm on Monday 18th February we will hold the Turner Peninsula Trophy competition which will be judged by Ken Woods LRPS. As piloted last year, this year it will again be a PDI competition with the usual maximum of 5 entries. Please indicate which entry should be excluded should there be too many entries received and a “cull” prove to be necessary.

Entries must be clearly recognised to have been taken from or within the Manhood Peninsula (i.e. East to West: between Pagham Harbour and East Head & North to South: between the A27 and Selsey Bill).

Please remember that the maximum size for projecting a landscape image using the club’s equipment is currently 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high and that the maximum height of a portrait image is therefore also 1080 pixels. Please check the SCC website (‘Competition Galleries’ tab) for the online ‘Resizing Guide’.

The deadline for accepting entries is noon on Sunday 17th February. Please send your DPI entries to Dick Read attached to an email to

Martin W.B Thomas
