One for the Birds

While there was a wide range of different images presented in our 2nd Open competition this year, judge Colin McLatchie from Eastwood Camera Club gave several of the honours to wildlife images. Top of the bunch was Jim Stevenson’s shot of a Crested Tit (above) – and certainly it’s a great capture. This projected image lifted to trophy, while Kevin Thorne had the best monochrome print, an abstract entitled ‘Mary’s Shell’ of an artwork off the Lancashire coast, and top marks for the best colour prints was a three-way tie between, Jim Stevenson, Colin Robinson and martin Hancock.

Below we show another top marks projected image for a more exotic bird – a Panama Flycatcher, which Ian Johnstone had captured while on holiday in Costa Rico.
