December Competition – Print of the Year

The competition was judged by David Kissman, and members were generally pleased with his helpful critiques and advice on how an image might be improved.

The Print of the Year winner was Sue West, with her image of a Scooter. The judge said it was a risk to photograph the scooter in motion, but it had been well executed and was in a good position within the frame, an outstanding composition.


Second Place was awarded to Veronica for her image of a Winter Swan. It was described as having a pleasant bluish light reflecting the fact it was taken in winter, and the backlight on the right of the image providing atmosphere.


Third Place was In Memoriam by St.John Burkett, which was described as having good use of light, well-positioned verticals and overall a good balance


Fourth Place was Peter Bower with Light Shade and Texture, which was taken in France. It was judged to have good lighting, and using the tree on the right provided a good stop.
