Before the meeting I complimented our secretary, Tom Seaton, on two of his entries and I was delighted that judge Bob Dennis agreed and gave one, “The Swimming Pool is Closed” first place in the Genera Colour section.

Although two of our regular entrants were not able to compete this time we still had a good field of over 70 prints and they were of the same high quality.

John Royle took the nature section and Peter Hrebien took the monochrome. So exemplary are Peter’s monochrome images that he has been asked if he could tell us more about his technique. Peter, and wife Vicky have already made a big impact in our competitions and I suspect we¬†might be getting a double act when the talk takes place!

Speaking of talks by members we have Peter Bainbridge next week telling us something of how he gets those wonderful aeroplane shots.

The results of the competition can be found HERE and a gallery will be added later.
