The competition is between members of the Beccles, Framlingham and Bungay clubs and involved both colour and monochrome prints.
Judge Peter Espley provided an entertaining evening and awarded scores for each print. The overall winner was Bungay Camera Club with 268 points, second was Framlingham with 253 and third was Beccles with 247.
The photograph by Bungay club member Robert Taylor is called ‘Stormy Days’ - it was awarded a maximum 20 points by the judge, along with ‘Cobweb Surprise’ by Marion Ridgley and ‘Click, Click Lightroom’ by Andy Wilson.
Bungay Camera Club meet on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm in Broome Village Hall.
