North Norfolk Photographic Society
North Norfolk Photographic Society’s 2017-2018 competition season got off to a flying start on 4th October, when Howard King came to judge the pictures submitted in Projected Digital Image (PDI) form.
It was the first visit that Howard had made to the Society, and it fell to him to comment upon and give marks to the numerous entries.
So-called ‘Novices’ and ‘Advanced’ members were able to submit 2 entries each – and they could only be described as ‘varied’!
The Novices section was won by Tony Shipp with 'Light at the end of the Tunnel' – an atmospheric photograph. Second was 'The Birds' by Barrie Price, a dramatic night-time shot of a fishing boat surrounded by seagulls, brilliantly lit. Third equal were 'Colour Pop Car' by Cheryl Howell and 'On the way to Castle Crag' by Heather Green.
The Advanced entries were especially strong and the winner was 'Catching flies' by Lizzie Wallis, a cleverly caught mid-flight photograph of a bird with a beakful of flies. Lizzie also came second with 'Mating Chalk-hill Blues' – butterflies, of course. And third 'The skateboard' by Bernard Dawson which set a close-up of a skateboard against the skateboard ramps seen under the skateboard between its wheels.
Meetings of the North Norfolk Photographic Society are normally held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays each month at the Holt Community Centre. For further details please contact the club Secretary, Judith Wells at firstname.lastname@example.org or see the club website at http://www.nnphotosoc.org/
