Print Photographer of the Year Competition 2014

The club welcomed former member (and three times winner of the Photographer of the Year competition!)  Malcolm Cook on October 30th to judge the entries in the Photographer of the Year competition.

Malcolm commented on the quality of all of the entries and told the club that it had been very difficult to decide on the winning images.

In the print Photographer of the Year competition the results were as follows.

First: Cheeky chap, by Marie Rollitt

Second: Muddy day, by Anthony Hewitt

Joint third: Orthodox Blue, by Mike Gibbons and Shoot Blue, by Jill Davies

October ‘Shoot Blue’ Projected Competition Results

Damian Murphy’s detailed still life ‘Sapphire Blue’ won the Shoot Blue projected competition in October 2014. It’s actually water and blue ink in the glass rather than gin!

Amanda Keeling had her best result yet with 2nd place for her macro flower shot. The photo was taken on a round walk from Dronfield Woodhouse to Cartledge Hall in September.

It was a good week for Damian, as his ‘Blue Bee’ shot of a bee and an 8 foot tall Echinops flower took third place.

September ‘Earthscapes’ black and white competition results

Jil Davies won this month’s competition with a shot of Ladybower reservoir that was taken early one evening just as the sun was going down. Jill feels that the couple on the jetty fishing were an added bonus giving the photo a bit more interest.

Mike Gibbons came second with this evocative image of a sunset at Mother Cap Rocks in the Perak District. Mike also won the colour competition this month.

John Newman came third with this image the sun behind a gritstone boulder. This was a very good week for John, as his images also came in second and third place in the colour competition!
