The theme of ‘open’ provided a great diversity of images to judge and compare at Stamford Photographic Society’s monthly competition.

The competition also resulted in the points for the best images being shared by a number of members.

David Baxter’s appealing photograph of a horse in the Yorkshire Dales was a clear winner in the single competition, with more than twice as many votes as the second placed image.

Other successful images were Wally Lodge’s colourful close-up shot of a painted lady butterfly and David Townshend’s abstract shot of the colours in rusting corrugated iron.

The group competition was won by St John Burkett’s intriguing set of silhouettes of people, with John Hiller’s shots capturing the feel of a mud running event and Sue Haynes’ photographs of Cornish stained glass church windows also scoring well.

Society members also reviewed their images from the July photo shoot to the Nene Valley Railway at Wansford. This revealed the wide range of approaches taken by members, and provided an opportunity to share information on techniques used, both in the field and in subsequent computer processing.
