Thursday 12 February saw the third of our competition evenings for projected images. Howard Toll stepped in to do the judging at short notice, giving us an entertaining evening without the aid of his owls.
First up was the Percy Lund Rose Bowl for the best Novice All-Rounder. A very close contest, just won by Kyle Smith with his images 'Goit Stock Falls', 'The Old Sew', 'Steam Punk' and 'Gin and Tonic'. A close second, also scoring a total of 65 points was Tony Kilcoyne. Very bad luck, really! Indeed the lowest score in this competition was 63 - not far away!
Next to be judged was the VB Lloyd Trophy for photojournalism, action and sport. From a healthy, varied entry of forty images, 'Lunch Break, Haworth Wartime Weekend' won; a great candid shot by Graeme Mitchell.
After tea, we saw an impressive entry of forty two creative processing images for the CE Lawson Trophy. This, too, was nearly tied with Steve Swiszczowski's splendid image 'Drawn Back to the Scene' scoring twenty but coming second to Michael Myers' remarkable tour-de-force " From My Hide-out".
Howard gave a very useful critique of each image leaving us all with something to work on for the future.
Here are the others from the winning All-Rounder set:
