Brief comments from the selectors are
included in the Exhibition Catalogue.
The Selectors explained that their aim was to select
work that was not only technically good but was also creative and
They felt that some of the digital imaging prints
submitted had been let down by poor choice of paper or overuse of
saturation and sharpening, and that there were comparatively few
outstanding sports and natural history prints.
However, they described these as minor criticisms.
They praised the high standard of the large and varied entry, and believed
that there were "more than enough high quality prints to produce an
exhibition that would have something of interest and value to all
photographers and visitors alike".
