You’re Nicked! – by Keith Mulliner

‘You’re Nicked’ was taken by Keith Mulliner and judge Cy Newton awarded it 17 in our first PDI mono competition last season. It’s not your normal re-enactment photo where someone is posed smiling for the camera, it tells a story where a thief is caught red handed by the policeman. You could have stepped into a time machine and found this scene. The setting is fitting for the characters and I like the pose and expressions. The monochrome conversion suits the subjects and removes any distracting colours. Nice one Keith.


We meet again on 5th.September for the start of the 2019-20 season.

The postcode for the Lifestyle Centre (CW1 2BB). Use CW1 2DH for the car park.
