The April meeting of the Stamford Photographic Society was a very interesting evening with a challenging competition for members: Our architectural heritage.

There was a wide range of interpretations, from the streets of Stamford to the interiors of churches in Cambridge.

The winning image was taken by John Hiller with an atmospheric photograph of Caernarfon Castle taken at dusk.

A black and white image of the Lloyds Building in London by David Townshend was placed second and in third place was a photograph of the interior of Kings College, Cambridge taken by Gordon Brown.

The group competition was won by Sue Haynes with her set of photographs taken in the streets of Stamford.

The competition was followed by a review of the current Royal Photographic Society’s East Anglia Region Members Print Exhibition. This collection of 100 high quality prints was inspiring and gave society members an insight into the composition and technical skills required to achieve this level.

The next meeting will be on Thursday, May 19, at 8pm, when the competition will be Two Wheels or More, followed by a presentation by David Townshend on the critical analysis of images for competitions. Visitors and new members are welcome.
