THESE are among the winning entries of a recent digital photograph competition held by a camera club in Rustington.
The Littlehampton and District Camera Club recently held its third merit projected digital image competition.
The judge was David Lloyd LRPS.
He took time before commencing the judging to congratulate the club on the high standard and quality of the entries.
In total, there were more than 60 entries and David went through each one slowly, giving constructive criticism and advice before deciding on the final placings.
In the end, the stunning image of a spine-cheeked anemone fish earned underwater photographer Wendy Eve the top place and winning position in the competition.
The runner up was Norman Atkinson with his image titled Greater London House, which gave a view of ‘architectural interest’ of the large Art Deco building, which is based in Camden.
Third place was given to Sylvia Kislingbury for her ‘beautiful and magical’ image, titled Desert Ride, which showed a single camel with a rider wandering through an empty landscape.
It was the ‘subtle coloured hues’ of the photograph which gave the whole picture a feeling of ‘peaceful solitude’, club member John Raymond said.
As the club year draws to an end there are only the print and the digital image of the year competitions to go before the final week and the club awards evening.
The winning members all receive recognition for the work done this year and the club uses the summer to gather more material for next season.
The next season, which starts on September 10, will be the club’s 70th and will culminate in an anniversary celebration.
The Littlehampton and District Camera Club describes itself as a friendly club and is always ready to welcome new members.
It is encouraging new members to join next season and celebrate its 70th anniversary.
The club meets on Wednesdays from 7.15pm, for a 7.30pm prompt start, at the Methodist church hall, in Claigmar Road, Rustington.
