Digital images are fine but you still can't beat a good photographic print. York Photographic Society continues to celebrate prints and we held our annual Colour Print Competition on the 3rd February 2016. The entries were expertly judged by Dave Coates ARPS, ESFIAP/p, APSA, EPSA, MPAGB, APAGB from Northallerton and were whittled down to three placed, three Highly Commended and three Commended prints. Thank you Dave for your helpful comments and the efficient judging of 65 prints!
Congratulations then goes to current YPS President Peter Bayliss who won this year's Competition with his atmospheric local landscape, "A Common Tree". Click on the image to view on black.
