Alnwick and District Camera Club welcomed back John Smith from Gateshead to judge its set of three print competition.
The requirement is for a group of three prints that work together as a panel. Since there was no set subject, the variety of pictures entered was good. There were some innovative approaches to creating a set using different mounting styles and sizes of print, making the job of judging quite a challenging one. However, John rose to the occasion with enthusiasm, commenting on the overall high standard of entries.
Stained Glass Windows by Rosalee Cook-Jury, Italian Facades by Sue Baker, The Fish Market by Ian Atkinson and Evening Light, Quayside by Laine Baker were all commended while Long Exposure Seascapes by Dave Dixon and Tynemouth Metro by Gerry Simpson were highly commended. In fourth place was Midnight at Salford Quays by John Thompson, and in third place was Boatsheds by Moonlight by Nick Johnson.
Second Place went to Kevin Murray for Puffins, a superb group of appealing and humorous bird portraits, but winner of first place was David Carter with On The Shelf, three detailed and delicately coloured images of everyday objects from a bygone age.
