February Competition – Annual Portrait Competition

The Society’s Annual Portrait Competition was judged by David Hollingsworth from North East Midland Photographic Federation who provided an excellent critique of the 56 images which members presented.

In first place with “Isla” was Veronica Watson. David described this image as having excellent skin tones and the angle of the head looking across the across from the camera provided a very good composition.

In second place one of our new members with Jayne Williams with “Matt and Emmie”. This mono image had a strong composition with the two subjects engaged and good contrasts right across the image.

In third place was Sheila Rodgers with her image of the unusual Verreaux’s Eagle Owl with a nicely blurred background of the head which filled the frame.
