Fran Taylor, a judge from Exeter Camera Club, had a difficult job with the club’s Open Digital Projected Image Competition. She had to evaluate about 80 images, in colour and black and white, which ranged from landscapes, portraits, abstract, nature, sport and street photography.

Fran, who first took up photography at Art College in the days of film and dark rooms, had clearly spent a lot of time considering each picture carefully. She made constructive comments about what the images were trying to convey and how successful they were.

14 images were shortlisted, from which awards were given to Nigel West (Highly Commended), Bob Clowes (Third), Ken Holland (Second) and Mac Bouchere (First).
