After selecting their favourite three images, visitors awarded third place to Peter Stevens’ ‘Lone Tree’, second place to Malcolm Jenkins’ ‘Face That Tells a Story’ and first place to Peter Howe’s ‘Spike R.I.P’.

A spokesman said: “With a significant increase in attendance numbers, this year’s exhibition was one of the most popular of recent times for the society, with hundreds of visitors each being able to vote for their favourite three images out of the approximately 200 photographs being displayed.”
