For the first time since before Covid, the Society held one of its competitions as a Digitally Projected event. 14 members submitted 56 images between them ,which were placed on the web to allow members to judge them in the comfort of their own homes and submit what in their opinion were the top 6 images.
At the meeting on the Thursday evening members reviewed all the images and explained how and when their own images were taken. Later in the evening a presentation was given on how to calibrate screens and ensure that printers are matched to produce quality prints.
In the Individual Competition Simon Curley was the winner with his image of a stag “Solo Deer” taken at Bradgate Park near Leicester.
In second place, only 2 points behind Simon, was Nigel Jolley with his image “High Speed Hunter” of a Kingfisher in flight.
In joint third place was Iain Evans with his image “Man on a Mountain” taken in Wales and Gordon Brown with his image “Pasque Flowers” taken earlier this year at Hills and Holes near Barnack.
And in fourth place was Sue West with her image “Maori Warrior” take in New Zealand
In the Group Competition the winner was Nigel Jolley with a set of natural history images.
