8th June 2013 4-Way Battle, hosted by Sydenham

This weekend we joined in battle with three local clubs, Minehead, host Sydenham (Bridgwater), and Yeovil. Leaving a brilliantly sunny afternoon we entered the darkened club house to view an equally brilliant collection of prints and projections. Well-known judge Mac Bouchere FRPS kindly did the honours, scoring 80 images with his usual thoroughness and accurate assessments.

Best image of the day was a beautiful Sydenham shot of two starlings facing up to each other in flight, wings outstretched, the colours of their iridescent feathers perfectly caught. Prophetic that, because Sydenham went on to win overall, by a decent margin, with Wellington second, Yeovil third and Minehead fourth.

Compensation was provided by a first place for Wellington prints, and a very nice cream tea from our hosts, rounding off an excellent afternoon.
