The latest challenge for Stamford Photographic Society members was photographs of an ‘Industrial Scene’.

This competition produced images of factories, foundries and railways. Hanson Cement in Ketton proved to be the most productive source of inspiration – David Townshend won the best single image with his shot of the factory against the orange sunset sky.

Ketton also featured prominently in the group competition, where first place was shared by Dave Baxter and David Townshend with photographs of the inside and outside of the factory.

Other images that scored well were shots inside the Loughborough bell foundry by Wally Lodge and of steam engine restoration by John Hillier; and an evocative image of a power station and wind turbines in the orange haze of a setting sun by St John Burkett.

The society also held its annual general meeting at which officers were appointed. Members agreed on a number of innovative ideas for the 2016 programme to increase the opportunities to share ideas.

The next meeting will be on Thursday, November 19 at 8pm, when members will compete for the Best Portrait Cup. Visit www.stamford-photosoc.org.uk or contact secretary Dave Baxter 01780 751849 for further details.
