Three fantastic prints have been chosen as winners in this year’s annual exhibition by Spalding Photographic Society.

Around 55 works are on display at the Geest Gallery in Ayscoughfee Museum, Spalding, including the top three chosen by Lincolnshire Free Press chief photographer Tim Wilson, who was invited to judge the competition.

• First place went to One Man Band by David Bratley, which Tim described as “demonstrating thought and skill with one musician being photographed seven times and montaged into one picture.”

• Shaun Barnard was second with a stunning print of Eilean Donan Castle in Scotland.

Tim said: “Shaun shows a breadth of skill in his pictures, waiting for moody light in this picture, and showing an eye for the unusual in his portrait.”

• Third place went to Paul Clifton for Braving the Elements.

Tim’s comments were: “Paul has waited for the decisive moment in this picture – the pedestrian and the crashing wave, coupled with scenic composition.”

Shaun was also highly commended for Belting Hair Do.

Society chairman Roger Human said: “Every member is allowed to display three prints in the exhibition. The winners don’t get a prize, just the kudos of winning, because it’s in the eye of the judge.”

The exhibition runs until Sunday, January 30.

• Spalding Photographic Society meets on every Wednesdays at 7.30pm from September until April at the Castle Bowls Club pavilion, off Albion Street, Spalding.
