Last night was the third of our print competitions. In the words of the judge Margaret Southerngton LRPS, "our members do get to to travel to all sorts of places."
Margaret also commented on the great range of images as is usual for the society.
The JW Murray Trophy was the first to be judged.
1st place went to Andy Withey with his picture of Victoria Gate Leeds (20 pts). "It has good shapes and tones, with detail even in the darker areas."
2nd went to GRaham Binns with his picture of "Keswick Clouds" (also 20 pts)
3rd went to Graeme Mitchell with his "Saltsburg Horses" (19 pts)
On Thursday 23 February we were treated to a twinkling talk on photographing the night sky by David Bishop from the Bradford Astronomical Society.
A whole new universe was opened up as he explained how to get images of distant objects - double stars, galaxies and nebulae many of which are not visible to the naked eye. Also 'nearby' objects like the moon, eclipses, transits of the sun and amazing alignments of planets were all shown.
