Newsletter #98 Friday 4th February 2022

Editor - Derek Godridge

As mentioned last night you have until Sunday 13th February to enter the Knightshayes Trophy for FREE with up to 2 digital images NB Not Prints this year. See below WCPF news for entry details.

We had a great night of member critiques last night so thanks to everyone who brought images in with them for review.

By the way thanks for the feedback on one of mine – maybe see if you can spot the difference ☺


Meetings

  1. Our members’ critique was well supported last night and it was great to see both established and new(ish) members offering up their images for discussion. It was also nice to see returning member Keith last night and he thrilled us with a few of his shots from underground mine in Spain. I have a feeling we might see more one day!

  2. In a change to the programme, next week’s KF2 results will be on FRIDAY 11th February, which is down to Penryn FC requiring the room for a wake for one of their long term members. Luckily our judge Kevin Leah could accommodate the new date.

  3. Mandy’s fun “Lucky Dip II” is on Thursday 17th February.
