March 2017

At their March meeting, members of the Stamford and Rutland Photographic Society competed for the Best Digital Projected Image.  The topic was ‘Through the Glass’, and subjects ranged in scale from a vertiginous tower-top view  to close-ups of Daddy longlegs and flowers reflected in a small glass ball.

 

The Society invited Trevor Rudkin from Kettering to judge the competition. Trevor, a judge for the Midland Counties Photographic Federation with skills in many areas of photography, commented on and scored all forty images from eleven members, applying competition standards. He gave full marks to four photos.
