The December meeting of the Stamford Photographic Society was a busy evening, with two competitions interspersed with festive celebrations.

The Print of the Year competition was judged by Sue Campbell, secretary of Deepings Camera Club, who provided expert constructive advice on all the entries.

The cup was won for the second year in a row by Robin Pearson, this time with a strikingly lit monochrome shot of palm trees on a Californian beach – a worthy winner.

In second and third places were Julie Coles’ painterly interpretation of a lighthouse and Sue Haynes’ delicate seedheads.

Sue Campbell also kindly offered an assessment of all the entries in the second competition: Landscapes.

The winner, chosen by members, was David Townshend, just one point ahead of John Hillier. Sue Campbell commended the quality of the composition and lighting of their images. In third and fourth place were Gordon Brown and Sue West.

Cups were awarded to David Townshend for winning both the single and group competitions, and the Chairman’s Cup was given to Dave Baxter for organising our successful summer exhibition in the Arts Centre.

The next meeting of Stamford Photographic Society will be on Thursday, January 21, when there will be an open competition.
