Photographers were put to the test in Ely Photographic Club’s annual Ken Hitch competition this month.
Judged by Jim Bennett, each member had to submit two colour images with a 'hot' theme and two monochrome images under a 'cold' theme, and the member with the highest aggregate score is the overall winner.
Kevin Pigney was the overall winner with 78 points, as Ryan Bailey finished runner-up with 75 points. Shirley Eastwood and Viv Houghton shared third spot with 73 points.
The competition, which was enjoyed by all involved, challenges members to take photographs that are perhaps outside their comfort zone and to think carefully about image titles.
Since it formed in 1974, Ely Photographic Club has 50 members and offers a varied programme including talks, workshops and presentations.
