Critique Instructions

To keep us all focused on photography we have set up a set of on-line critiques.

This is the process:

  1. Prepare images (maximum of two per member, at the usual size of 1920px horizontaly or 1200px vertically) on the subjets as below.
  2. Send the images to Clive Handscombe who will put them on a dedicated web page on this site. Submit entries to "".
  3. Look for the images, assess and critique using our usual scoring system: marks /10 in categories of Impact / Creativity / Interpretation / Technique or an option of total marks  /40 and then send them to Phil. Please score by using the attached file below and return to Phil Chapman.
  4. Closing dates are 20th of the month for submission and upload to the web page to be seen by all, 30th of the month for submitting the critiques marking form, and then Phil will send out a resume of scores and critiques over the following seven days. A zoom meeting will then be held for all members to see and discuss the images. Details of how to access a zoom meeting are attached below.
