There were four Open Print Competitions in 2017-18 and one themed competition.  The first three images in this set were my entry for the theme of Happiness, which was the title set by our interclub competitors, Holmfirth – their choice not ours.  I think they were attempting to get their own back for our theme choice in the previous year though I’m not sure why as they always seem to do better than us with any theme suggested.  In each competition we were asked to submit one colour image, one mono image plus one colour or mono.  The aim of this was to encourage members to extend themselves as photographers, but also to meet the needs of some of our inter-club and regional competitions.  These are my print entries for 2017-18.  A good year for me which saw me taking home the Photographer of the Year trophy for the second year.  Click on an image to bring up the larger gallery view.
