Last Wednesday members of Dawlish and Teignmouth camera club vied for position in the third open print competition of the season.
There were a large number of entries covering a wide range of subjects ranging from landscape to architecture, portraits to wildlife including some extremely imaginitive images, black and white and colour.
The judge, John Hawkins travelled from Axminster , giving a short introduction and commenting on the fact that he bought his first camera in 1949 and has had a keen interest in phoography ever since.
He gave a thorough , sometimes humerous commentary, before announcing the results as follows.
