Last Thursday it was the Open competition, judged by Sam Cornwell, from The Taxi Office art gallery, who had the unenviable job of whittling down 70 images, from both digital and printed sections, to get to his top three in each category and the overall winner. Sam is very knowledgeable and passionate about photography, which came across during his critique of members’ work. He changed his mind on more than one occasion, before finally choosing the following images.
Digital section: 1, Margaret Lancaster (Near Glencoe); 2, Dennis Laing (Breakfast at Rothiemurchus); 3, Ian Bell (Hanging around); highly commended, Gordon Gilfether (Red on Blue). Print section: 1, Bert Lancaster (The Restaurant in the Mirror); 2, Dennis Laing (Come on baby light my fire); 3, Bert Lancaster (Water Lily); highly commended, Ali Graham (Bird’s Eye). Open cup winner, Margaret Lancaster.
Tomorrow (Saturday) sees the club coffee morning in Trinity church hall. Thursday’s meeting will feature images from the club outing to Hexham and Corbridge.
