Kudos, as well, to the other members whose images were submitted in the Round 2 Competitions: Dorinda Wills, Kristina Alums, Bruce Benson, Richard Knudson and Maggie Tieger. As a club, we are doing extremely well.
In addition to TPS members participating in Round 2, over the past two years ten TPS members have also had images submitted: Sal Ahmed, Tim Clifton, Bud Harris, Debbie Klosowski, Judith Lilly, Larry Maddox, Nancy Mooney, Bruce Severeid, Joe Tieger, and in Memorium – Dan Suckow.
TPS is in Group B (2nd highest standings) for both the Nature and Open Competitions. Given that hundreds of clubs around the world participate in these competitions, TPS has a very high standing. The competition is incredibly challenging. To see winning images go to: https://psa-photo.org/index.php?home and look for ‘competitions’ . There is also a slideshow running on the home page. The images are pretty amazing. There is much to be learned.
Included are two PSA articles which go into great detail on how ‘judges think’ in terms of scoring.
The next competitions will be in April.
