Edmonton wins the Camera Craft Cup

On Thursday evening Edmonton emerged the winners of a close fought ‘battle’ at Enfield Camera Club. The event was the annual competition for the ‘Camera Craft Cup’. This year seven clubs were represented, and the competition was extremely close. Naomi Saul, judging on the evening, commented that the entries were of a particularly high standard and that it was a very fine balance to fairly mark them.

The event, which took place in Enfield’s usual venue, was viewed by an audience, present in the hall and those viewing at home via Zoom. At the interval those in attendance were treated to a large selection of cakes and scones, all baked by Robert Snary, a co-member of Edmonton CC.

At the end of the evening the scores were as follows:

Edmonton 109
Loughton 108
Walthamstow 107
Potters Bar 106
Southgate 104
Enfield 102
Hoddesdon 102

In a very strong field two of Edmonton’s entries secured a maximum twenty points. There were:

‘Dalmatian Pelican in Winter Sun’ by Sue Webster, and

‘Charging Hard’ by Marion Rapier

This coming Monday sees another ‘battle’ when Edmonton take on Gibraltar Photographic Society in our bi-annual competition. Gibraltar PS are a strong club, with some very proficient members, so we look forward to seeing their work. We also look forward to hearing the thoughts of the judge, Lloyd Moore, who will be visiting us for the first time. Monday’s meeting will be ‘hybrid’ with the event taking place at Millfield House and being available by Zoom.

    I went to Enfield last night, and we were made very welcome by Robert, who baked and supplied lovely cakes to keep our hunger at bay. There were some lovely images, and I had chosen the Pelican in Winter Sun before I knew it was Sue’s so very well done to Sue, and equally well done to Marion – you both did us proud!

    Thank you all for your support and for visiting last night either virtually or in the hall. Those in the hall will be pleased to know that no cakes went home with me 😀
