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.Almost 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.3rd place was again very different to the preceding pictures. Mike Sadler’s “Up in the Air” was full of excitement and adventure!Mavis 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”.
