A gorgeous evening on Thursday 12th of May was spent by four teams of BPS members indulging in a photographic Treasure Hunt. Each allocated a colour, the challenge was to was to present a set of five images with that colour as their theme.
Don Crabtree acted as judge and he had a difficult task with a similar standard offered by all the sets. It was encouraging that Don considered that no set was complete rubbish - but slightly surprising since the whole exercise took about 90 minutes from finding suitable subjects to presenting the finished set complete with any desired post-processing.
It felt like majority were enthused from 'many vision' session last night (14th April), with 40 entries.
There were some classic and inspirational entries, which also included adventure of poundstretcher.
"Whitby Pier" - Winner - Jason
2nd. Graeme, 3rd. Kenn.
Our third print trophy evening of the session took place on Thursday 17th March. Both the JW Murray Trophy for best Monochrome Pictorial print and the Walker Trophy for the best Colour All-Rounder were on offer. Although the number of entries was modest, the audience was treated to a very considered appreciation of each print by our judge for the evening, Tony Caunt LRPS from Bradford Camera Club.
The JW Murray Mono chrome trophy was won by Andrew Holland with his 'Saltaire by Night' (see above). He also gained Third place with 'Between Two Mills' another night study of Saltaire. Don Crabtree prevented a clean sweep by taking Second place with his atmospheric winter print 'Frozen'.
