Set Subject – Happiness

Set Subject – Happiness 12 March 2018

This PDI set subject certainly tested members imagination! There was plenty of happiness during the evening and some laugh out loud moments from the audience. Our judge for this competition was Mavis McCormick LRPS who is President of Hexham Photographic Society. Mavis chose John Atkinson’s black & white study “You’re ‘aving a larf!” as the winning entry and the subjects were definitely enjoying themselves.1st place You're 'aving a Larf! - John AtkinsonAlmost in total contrast the rustic colours of 2nd placed Ruth Oatway’s “It’s a Dog’s Life” brought some real ‘aaaahs’ from the audience.2nd place It's a Dog's Life - Ruth Oatway3rd place was again very different to the preceding pictures. Mike Sadler’s “Up in the Air” was full of excitement and adventure!3rd place Up in the Air - Mike SadlerMavis also selected six pictures as Highly Commended. “A Good Mouthful” by Bill Norfolk, “Class of 2017” by Ian Morton, “Elephant Sand Bath” by June Atkinson, “November Sunflower” by Kath Guellard and two more of John Atkinson’s images, “Flying High” and “Happiness is Being Engaged”.
