Uploading Portraits – Warnings

As you know, members attending on Tuesday are asked to upload a selection of their best images to the Photo Entry system, see details here

Please be aware of the following…

I have set the target dimensions to be 6000 x 6000px. You can, and probably will, upload smaller or larger images.

If they are smaller than 6000 x 6000 you will see an amber warning message “TOO SMALL”. Please ignore this message, it just means it is smaller than 6000 x 6000 but that is OK.

Points of View – Let’s do it!

Points of View 2018

Bromham and Biddenham, Sunday 4 November at 10.30

So, let’s do it!

Let’s meet at Bromham Mill café at 10:30, because the clocks will have gone back, and finish in Biddenham around 13:00.  For those who wish to partake I have reserved a table for lunch at The Three Tuns in Biddenham.

Same rules as before, see here. Six images on six themes taken on the route on the day. Themes as before, see here.  But note the change of times which are now to be 10.30am to 1pm

Judging PDIs on 4th December with a trophy for the winner. No fee to enter.

New club members particularly welcome as this is a competition where the novice can take on the more experienced photographers.  It’s all about capturing the moment.

Any questions please get in touch by email or at the club meeting on 30th October.

Portraits Evening

I am sure you all had a great evening’s photography last night with our excellent models.

The Next Step

Now it is  time to upload your best images so they can be passed to each of the models.

When you log in to PhotoEntry you will see that under the heading ‘Other Internal Competitions’ there is a listing ‘Portraits 23rd October’.

Please upload your best images to here.  You may add up to 20 images of up to 6000 x 6000 pixels, with the normal file size maximum of 10MB per image.

(On PhotoEntry, when you go to upload your images, you will see:  Target Dimensions  width 6000, height 6000. For this time, in fact, this is the maximum size and not a target to aim for, so just upload your largest image up to this dimension.)

Please make the effort to add your images so we can reward the models for their hard work.

Thank you

Linda

 

Stan Searle Trophy

This is your reminder that our next competition is the Stan Searle Trophy taking place on 6th November.

Please remember that this is a PRINTS only competition.  The closing date is midnight next Tuesday, 30th October.

You may enter up to three images with the theme ‘Person or People’.  

Bring your prints along next Tuesday.  If this is not possible please contact Linda at linda.swain@sky.com to arrange to deliver them to her.

Each print must have a corresponding PDI.  Enter those via photoentry before the competition closes on Tuesday.

Looking forward to another great competition.

Points of View Reschedule

Points of View 2018

New Date Sunday 4 November

Because the weather was so inhospitable we had to cancel our competition scheduled for Sunday last, 14 October.

I am seeking an indication of whether you are likely to attend the event if we reschedule for 4th or 11th November.  Preferred date is 4th November if only because the later we leave it the more uncertain the weather is likely to be.

Please let me know your preference by email or at next Tuesday’s club meeting.

Many thanks

Photo Entry Help

Photo Entry (PE) is our new method for members to submit competition entries directly online.
 
It is a BIG time saver, both for Linda and for yourselves. The feed back has been very positive. Most members have been using it with no problem.
 
However one or two have had a problem so I would like to make you aware of some points to bear in mind.
