Winter's dregs

The L&CPU judge for the evening, Tillman Kleinhans, introduced himself by talking about his love of art and making comparisons between styles of photography and prominent artists.

It was a pleasure to have such an open-minded judge who used his wide perspective to positively critique each image and also keep the evening on track.

Overall winner in the PDI section was new member Stuart Webster (Dissolving Venice), with a poignant image of reflections in the rising water levels around the City.

Second place went to Nigel Wells (Through the gate) a strong and expressive canoe slalom shot. Third in the category was a very atmospheric image of a tree in the winter mist by Janet Robinson (Winter’s dregs).

Gordon Spruce finished in fourth place with a colourful shot of grass track riders jostling for the lead (Battle for the lead). In fifth position was Dave Whitney (You looking at me), a powerful mono street composition.

In the prints category Bill Brown took first and third places with (Stop) a powerful urban landscape and (Surrounded by apathy). Gordon Spruce was second with (Feeding time) a well-timed shot of two feeding blue tits.
