Tenby win four-way battle

Published

Twenty points: Barn Owl with Prey by Paul Richards

LAST THURSDAY (Mar 9), Tenby and District Camera Club members travelled to the Carmarthen Indoor Bowling club for a 4-way club battle.

The competing clubs were the hosts Carmarthen, Cardigan, New Quay and Tenby and District Camera Club.

This battle entails each club submitting 10 digital images by 10 different photographers to be judged.

Kevin Thomas, MA, FRPS, is a member of Gwynfa Camera Club and was the judge for the evening. Kevin became interested in photography in the late 60’s and his hobby soon became his job, first becoming a dark room technician and then an assistant photographer at the National Museum in Cardiff.

Kevin gave each image his critique, telling the audience that in these battle competitions the composition needs to jump out at you, and photographers should look at the composition from low view points, crop as necessary to focus attention on the main body of the image, with Natural History images it is important that the photographer knows his or her subject allowing you to focus on the important details.

At the interval with 5 images shown, Tenby were in the lead with New Quay in second place.

Following a very enjoyable buffet Kevin continued his judging, again giving a comment to each image, with the last image being shown and being awarded one of the three 20 points.

It was evident that Tenby and District Camera Club came out as clear winners with 183 points, 2nd place New Quay with 168 points and joint third Cardigan and Carmarthen with 164 points.

Published

on

CABINET members and senior officers in Ceredigion have signed ‘My Charter’. In doing so, Ceredigion County Council have become the first council to sign up to the charter. My Charter was written by people who have learning disabilities in West Wales.

The charter says that people who have learning disabilities want to have more chances in life, more choice and to be listened to. It also says that people who have learning disabilities want to be treated as adults, to be given dignity and respect and that their information is kept private.

Councillor Alun Williams is the Cabinet member responsible for Adult Services. He said: “People with learning disabilities have the same aspirations, hopes and feelings as everyone else. They deserve the same services and to be treated equally in a way that’s appropriate to their needs. I’m delighted that Ceredigion has become the first council to sign the charter, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this can positively influence the way our population of people with learning disabilities are treated in the future.”

The charter was developed by people who have learning disabilities from across Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
