Chris Jepson was the winner of the final competition held in August 2020 under the theme "Looking Up", with his images of An Old Sea Dog and An Explorer's Eye.
Jean Jameson's floral image Growing was our winner under July's theme, "Intentional Blur".
Not for the first time, two photographers shared the honours in June under the theme "Looking at Life". Colin Page’s nicely balanced black and white street scene, “Looking at life on the Streets” and Gerard Ryan’s group portrait of the Society’s al fresco AGM secured most votes from members.
Ellen Whittle's beautiful image of flowers lit through a lace curtain was May's winner under the theme, "Finding Beauty in the Ordinary".
Despite Lockdown through April, the theme "Back Lighting" produced a bumper crop of entries. Jean Jameson came out on top with "Backlit, Double Exposure and B&W" the title revealing the technical mastery involved in producing a very directly affecting image of a tulip.
March's winner was Hilary Barton's beautiful macro image Moss in Flower under the theme "Shallow Depth of Field."
In January and February, we used the group page to share and comment on images that Members might put forward for our "Hands Across the Sea" competition.
For December the theme was "Kind of Blue". Society Webmaster John Murray's beautiful blurred image of birds in motion - Flock - secured the most votes from other members.
In November, under the theme "Unity and Togetherness". Alan Larsen's fantastic shot of a tightly knit shoal of fish on a reef Let's Stick Together was the winning image.
In October, we voted for new images for our social media banners. Over the next few months we will rotate the winning images on our website and on our facebook and twitter pages as well as our Flickr group.
Richard Eyers Legs and Shadows won the September theme of "Crowds."
Rob Wilkinson's cropped shot of a multistorey car park in Milton Keynes scored highest under August's theme, "Something Commonplace".
July's theme was "Something Extraordinary" and Margaret Marks's picture of two squabbling jay chicks gained the most votes from other members.
Natalie Robinson's dramatic image from a construction site, "Hanging against the light," won June's theme, "Hanging".
May's theme was "A View From a Window" and the runaway winner was Dennis Law's picture of his window cleaner.
