New Quay Four way Battle

May 3, 2019

40 prints were presented to judge Ed Cloutman who made his comments to a packed  Memorial Hall at New Quay last night. Approximately 50 people were there to witness  Carmarthen Photographic Society edge Aberystwyth into second place, followed by New Quay and then Cardigan. Thanks to New Quay for the buffet and organising the event.


Yes we won! Sue collected our trophy. 



Ed’s comments have been generalised for guidance purposes, if anyone wants to hear individual feedback on their work, please ask me.


So general things to watch according to Ed (who likes prints better than PDI’s)  are:


  • It’s OK to print smaller than A3, over enlargement can show faults more readily.

  • Be aware of framing too tightly.

  • Add a little more contrast when using Matte papers.

  • Don’t forget the background.

  • Beware of using “standard” filters in processing, the effects can be unhelpful unless managed properly.

  • Avoid overlapping subjects.

  • Avoid presenting prints in cellophane wrappers.
