    As part of the extended programme this year we’re going to be running an additional fun competition, and the subject will be “Isolation and Distance”.

    It’ll be digital only, and we’ll allow you to enter up to 3 images, however please ensure you number your images (in case we need to control the numbers), Entries by the Sunday before!

    This competition is purely for fun, so the scores allocated won’t contribute to the overall trophy competition, however hopefully it’ll give you something interesting and challenging to think about.

    And the judge for the night will be our very own Chairman Andy Hyde

    For this event we'll be asking you to show off your post processing skills.

    Below you'll find a set of 6 RAW files (and some JPEG versions of the unprocessed files), and we need you to edit those files in your favourite application to produce 2 images. On the night we'll then ask you to talk about your images just like we do on assignment night but describing the edits you made. You are completely free to edit and use the original files however you see fit.

    In the second part of the evening I'll be doing a step by step demonstration of the edits I made to give you an incite into my "process".

    n.b. The files are a mix of Canon and Fuji Raw files for variety and there's one file as a .DNG for an extra challenge.

    To Take part

    • Download either the RAW or JPEG images below
    • Edit them (however you choose) in your favourite editor (e.g. LightRoom, Photoshop, Affinity, Gimp)
    • Produce 2 images and send them in to Gareth, before midnight on the 7th June.

    FILES AVAILABLE NOW!!
    Use these links to download (via WeTransfer) either the original RAW files, or some JPEGs, and then produce 2 images from them.

    Fresh links use these from the 4th June.

    For this evening's activity we're trying something new, as suggested by one of our members...

    We all think we could do a better job than the judge, so tonight you'll have the chance to see how the scores you give compare against the judge's marks.

    We'll be selecting 25-30 images from previous open competitions which we'll display as if it were are normal competition. Then using the voting app we demonstrated on the Re-create a famous artwork evening, we'll be asking you to cast your votes between 1 and 10 for each image. Once the member's scores are in and tallied we'll reveal what the judge scored the image on the night and how they compare.

    Look out for details coming soon about how to vote.
