Friday 26th September was our 1st PDI competition and we were delighted to have Sue Flood DPAGB as our judge for the evening. Sue is a KCPA accredited judge, and a long-standing member of Sittingbourne Camera Club, having served on their committee from 1985 to 2012 including a term as Chairman. The images to be judged were of the usual APS high standard and Sue gave them her full attention, choosing the following:-
Division 1: 1st Martin Till with Porth Nanven; 2nd Stuart Thompson with Fight for the Lead; 3rd Richard Nutter with Little Owl on Stump.
Division 2: 1st Anthony Wright with Willow; 2nd David Hughes with United Nation; 3rd Chris Rogers with Little Egret in Flight.
Division 3: 1st Steven Baker with Strawberry Dessert; 2nd Lesley Parker with Giraffe; 3rd Steven Baker with Classic Firestone.
There were some familiar names among the winners but also some of our newer members in Division 3. Congratulations to everyone for putting their images into this competition and making it such an enjoyable evening.Top 3 images for each division: http://www.ashfordps.org.uk/respdi-1.htm
