The EPS Creative Group finish the year with the Cunningham Cup competition. The entry for this is a group of three related images - these are awarded marks individually and together as a group (for a total of 40 points).
The standard of the entries was really very high - lots of really nice work on display.
I entered three Kumi henna shots:
They were very well received (8,8,9 & 8 for the set), but tonight's judge, George Neilson (EPS), felt that as a set they would have been a considerably stronger entry if they had been more consistent feel through the whole set. I can't argue with that - they weren't shot with that in mind and the middle shot has a very distinctive colour treatment. The first shot is really just a record shot after approximately the first forty minutes, the second shot is the final result after close to four and a half hours and the last shot is from the sequence of Kumi removing the latex cap as we finished.
I was really pleased how much George liked them and particularly surprised that he marked the final shot higher than the other two.
