FOR its last meeting of 2018, Seaford Photographic Society held a new competition for projected digital images, simply entitled “Creative”.

It was judged by Steve Carroll and there were no rules, except that entries had to be all the photographer’s own work.

It was a great opportunity for people to show off their imagination and creative skills.

The subject was interpreted in many different ways.

The 25 entries included complex composite images created using Photoshop, amusing set piece table-top creations, conventional images with various software filters added, and other-worldly science fiction scenes.

There was one image that clearly stood out from all the rest and when it came to the judging, Tyger! Tyger! Burning Bright by Colin Mitchell took the winner’s trophy.

Second place went to Jennie Edwards for her butterfly image and Janice Hewitt took third place with the amusing and imaginative Get Well Soon. Members said the new competition was great fun and the society said it will undoubtedly appear again in next season’s programme.

The club is celebrating its 30th year and meets every Friday at 7pm for a 7.45pm start at Seaford Constitutional Club, Crouch Lane.

A spokesman said: “We welcome new members of all ages and skill levels and joining a photographic club is a great way to meet like-minded people and develop your skills.

“If you are interested just come along to one of our meetings and see what you think, with no obligation.

“The latest was the very popular Nature Print competition on January 4.
