Tenby 8 Way Battle

September 27, 2018



Tenby 8 Way Battle

Tenby & District Camera Club, St Florence


There was no session in Carmarthen this week as it was hoped that a good number of members would attend the 8 Way Battle being hosted by Tenby.  This was the 2nd time Tenby had run their 8 Way Battle and we wanted as many members as possible from Carmarthen to support this event as Tenby always support our Battles with a good turnout.


Apart from Carmarthen and Tenby the other clubs participating were Cardigan, Kidwelly, Llanelli, Newquay, Towy Valley and Trostre and with 10 images per club, judge Gareth Martin had quite a volume and variety of images to get through! There was a good mix of images to interest, although we had seen many in battles last season.


Gareth did not work with a score sheet, preferring to score from memory and gave his usual tips on how images could be improved.  He gave a wide range of scores, with 7 top scores of 20 - 2 for Cardigan, 2 for Llanelli, 2 for Tenby and 1 for Trostre.


The final scores were:


1st       Tenby              183

2nd      Trostre                        177

3rd      Llanelli             172

4th=    Carmarthen     163

4th=    Kidwelly           163

6th       Towy Valley     161

7th       Cardigan         160

8th       Newquay        156


Alas no 20 for Carmarthen this time, but our images had some good comments from Gareth and here are the scores:


Dandelion                                Adrian Smith               17

Delicate                                   Ian Thomas                 18

Green Eyes                             Alan Fitzpatrick           17

Have a Bud                            Alan Harries                16

In the spotlight                        Mavis Evans               15

Inspired whilst washing up    Nicky Rhodes             14

Lit Up                                      Andy Rhodes             18

Rapid Progress                      Adrian Smith               16

Through the wire                     Sue Porter                  16

Tram Line                                Alan Fitzpatrick           16


Well done to you all - 4th position was very good given the standard of images being entered.


Thank you to Tenby for hosting this event, and for providing a fantastic buffet and a raffle with plenty of prizes.


The next external competition is the 12 Way print battle at Bridgend on Monday 1 October.


Next week is our first PDI competition of the season being judged by Dennis Russ and remember to bring along mounted prints (up to 4) for judging on the 18 October.  Just a reminder that a tutorial from John’s presentation on mounting from last week is available on the website if you need some further hints on presenting your printed images.
