Photo of the Month

The honours for this month’s Photo of the Month go to Hellie Melhuish.

Hellie’s image was posted in our weekly Facebook challenge and then featured in the local paper (Indie) as the cover image for the Sunrise/Sunset weekly challenge. Congratulations Hellie for such a great image.

Photo of the Month is chosen by Matthew Bickham LRPS.

Inter Club Battle

Last Tuesdays meeting saw our Inter-club battle with Brentwood, Ware, Great Notley and Hertford camera clubs held over Zoom. This was judged and critiqued by Colin Strong ARPS CPAGB, but as a twist to the normal format the 90+ viewers were also able to score each image via poll. This was purely for fun and had no outcome on the overall results although certainly threw up a few surprise scores.

This was by far our most popular online event to date. Thank you to everyone who helped put this together


With each club entering 12 images it was still very close with just 14 points between all the clubs, but in the end with the home advantage it was BSCC that came out on top… well done us.
