Stunning images of the natural world


Following their recent success at the Western Counties Photographic Federation Inter-Club Championship at Exeter at the beginning of February, Stroud Camera Club recently held the fifth club competition of the current Season.

It was a high-scoring event with some memorable images in both the Digitally Projected and Prints sections. The guest judge for the competition was Steve Varman LRPS (https://stevevarman.co.uk/) whose critique of every image was detailed, thoughtful and much appreciated by the club members.

In the Prints section, Geoff Perrett took the top score of 20 points with his atmospheric image A Selfie In Sicily, closely followed by Leslie Holmes’s two prints, Chinstrap Penguin and Cheetah Cubs each of which scored 19.  Roger Matthews scored 18 points with his striking image Bite and Jeff Wilson had two successes with The Portrait and The Beauty In Black And White each also scoring 18 points.
