The monochrome competition was very close, with 2 images sharing the top spot – Martin Satur’s receding cups and Nick Wheat’s walkway scene.

David Barnett’s simple image of milk pouring came third.

IMAGE TO COME

January AGW Open competition

As always, we began the year with our AGW Open projected image competition.

First place went to Don Jacklin’s colourful mountain valley.

Second place was shared by an image of a crisp apple by Dave Jones and  Pam Fisher’s quaint corner shop at Christmas.

November Urban Jungle competition

In November, our competition theme was Urban Jungle – looking for images that capture how plant and animal life shares the built environment with us.

First place went to Nick Wheat’s intriguing image. We’d love to know how the car ended up there!

Second place was shared by an image of a seaside resort resort that’s seen better days by Nick Wheat (again!) and Derek Vintin’s shot from Sheffield General Cemetery.

October ‘Earthscapes’ monochrome print competition

As usual, October’s Earthscapes monochrome print competition had less entries than the colour competition. However, the judging was still tough for our club members, with all of the images being strong entries.

First place went to Darren Worthy’s shot of Whitby Abbey taken on a recent work visit to the town.

Nick Wheat took second place (image still to come).

2 images shared third place – Darren Worthy’s North Yorkshire seascape (also taken on his recent work trip!) and Martin Satur’s long exposure at Padley Gorge.

October ‘Earthscapes’ colour print competition

October’s ‘Earthscapes’ print competition was an opportunity for club members to display the photos that have been taken on their travels. And everyone certainly did!

First place went to Allyson Evans’ photo of the New York skyline.

Second place was taken by an image by Elaine Jackline (image to come).

Ian Smith’s seascape took third place.

September Minimalist competition

Our September competition saw members trying their hand at Minimalist photography – creating images with the smallest number of colours and subjects.

First place went to Darren Worthy’s optical illusion of an egg on a precipice – it’s actually an egg and three pieces of coloured card!

Allyson’s Evans monochrome shot from a UK beach came second.

Third place was taken by Nick Wheat’s image from the black sands of Vik in Iceland.
