March 2016

Greens’ was the subject for the Stamford Photographic Society’s annual digital projected image competition, and it proved a rich source of inspiration for members. This included not only leaves, vegetables and fruit in many forms, but also landscapes, wildlife and fairground stalls.

Eleven members entered over 40 images and our invited judge Sue Churchill had a challenge choosing the best ‘Greens’ on display.

The winner was a striking image ‘Explosion of leaves’ by David Townshend. There was a three-way tie for second place, between another of David’s images ‘Perfection in a pod’, and images from two recently-joined members:  Peter Bower with his still life of fruit ‘5aday’ and Veronica Watson with her creative, impressionistic ’Island of Greens’.  Sue West and St.John Burkett shared third place with ‘Baby Green Iguana’ and ‘Green Wall’. Veronica Watson completed an impressive showing with two images scoring equally in fourth place.

Judge Sue Churchill commended members for taking on this difficult subject with such skill and imagination.
