This evening brought the 2018/19 season of competitions to a close. The purpose of this particular contest is for members’ best work of the season to be re-submitted for a final judging and selection of the best images of the year. As a result, we viewed again some of this season’s highest marked entries, which were expertly assessed by the eminent photographer Alan Colegrave, who travelled from Pinner. Alan is a semi professional photographer who produces some very different work, not to mention his video productions. This was an interesting and well filled evening, particularly with a large print entry which kept Alan very busy.
The lucky winners were –
Prints
        1st   Drew Malloch – with an original and well contrived still life of pencils.
        2nd  Bill Weaver – with a stunning sunset
        3rd  Ramesh Naik (our chairman) with a shot of a storm over the South Bank
Projected digital images 
        1st    Kay White – showing the pianist at St Pancras station
        2nd  Janet Marshall – a monochrome image of Tenerife Auditorium
        3rd  Sarah Simmonds – proving that a still-life shot can be created from vegetables

The club’s AGM takes place on May 17th, with the final meeting of the season on May 24th with our trophy presentations and a social event. Once again a successful season, in which we have been joined by a large number of new members.
