Bat Out of Hell
by
John Jennings LRPS

The bike is a 1929 Scott Flying Squirrel and the lady rider is only slightly younger. They were taking part in the Kop Hill charity hill climb. Most vehicles proceed at a sedate pace but not this one! Although breaking many of the rules of photography this image really conveys the speed and drama of the subject.

Lavender Field Impression
by
Rosemary Wenzerul

Originally a photograph of straight lines of lavender. To add interest I inserted the tree and distorted the straight lines but kept them rising to draw your eye towards the tree.

A Camden Impression
by
Terry Day LRPS

This is a composite of two images both taken in Camden Town. Combining a narrow boat on the canal with a mural painted on the gable end of a house brings in more character and a wider impression of the area.

Flight Frenzy
by
Connie Fitzgerald

A high shutter speed and a bag of chips at Southend on Sea was all that was needed to capture these greedy seagulls. Blending four of the images and adding an 'oil paint' Photoshop effect created the final photograph. Winner of our Creative Print competition in January 2017.

Wet Night on Regent Street
by
Sue Anderson

A rainy night in November wasn't promising for photographing Christmas Lights - the reflections on the pavement looked much better. Not having a tripod with me I had to steady the camera on lampposts and walls for the long exposures.

OOOK!

Jeremy Fraser-Mitchell

They are close cousins of ours that's why a picture such as this stops us and makes us think. Not in its natural habitat otherwise I couldn't have safely got this close - he only looks sweet! I met him in Dresden Zoo.

Bottles

The effect of light through glass has a timeless appeal. This image does even more however and can remind the viewer of a family group.

Moscow
by
Sue Hipperson

Not actually Moscow at all but the Christmas lights of Conwy North Wales reflecting in the river estuary. The original looked attractive but has been a little bit 'twiddled' in the computer. It was then that it reminded me of the Moscow skyline.

La Vie en Rose

A combination of two photographs. The ballet dancer from Covent Garden has been softened and set against a de-saturated pink rose creating a lovely, but at the same time thought provoking, image.

European Roller
by
Ron Brown

The European Roller (Corasias garrulous) is found in open country in this case the Hortobagy National Park in Hungary. It's a noisy bird with a raucous crow like call. It feeds mainly on insects but is not averse to the occasional lizard or small mammal. The name Roller comes from its habit of rolling whilst flying at high speed during courtship displays.

Love Coffee
by
Fiona Gurr

Taken in my darkened kitchen - a string of fairy lights was dangled above the cup and saucer and a piece of black card fitted snugly over the camera lens. This had a small heart shaped hole cut in it to create the steam effect. A little extra was then added in the computer.

Durdle Dor
by
Dean Tyler

Taken on a cold and blustery January afternoon, hence the lack of people. A short walk along the coast path gave an alternative view of this often photographed feature. The black and white conversion helps enhance the textures and graphic nature of the image.

Little Boxes
by
Maggie Fricker

Originally a rather uninspiring block of flats with their air conditioning units. But reflected in the square mirror like windows of the smart office block across the road it became a picture with it's impact further improved by printing it in a square format.

Stepping Stones To Serenity
by
Dean Tyler

This is the only place on the East coast of England where the sun sets over the sea. I was hoping to see that and capture a beautiful scene but it was grey and drizzly. Undeterred I kept the shutter open for ten seconds resulting in this simple but mysterious composition.

Autumn in Ashridge Impression
by
Rosemary Wenzerul

The straightforward photo of the woods needed some life and movement. With a little help from the computer it can now be interpreted as either a gusty day showing the wind through the trees or perhaps a walk through an eerie wood where you might be troubled by what you may encounter!

Bridal Falls
by
Chis Gilbert

This is a small waterfall that can be seen from the White Pass Highway on the out skirts of Skagway in Alaska. There are many ways of photographing waterfalls. On this occasion I used a slow shutter speed to convey the movement in the water so it contrasted with the texture of the pieces of stationary wood.

Bridge Impression
by
Terry Day

The QE2 Bridge is a popular subject for photographers. In order to create something a little different I duplicated the original image, reversed it and converted it to monochrome. The second image was then combined with the first and adjusted to be larger to produce the final effect.

Hobby in Heather
by
Ron Brown

The Hobby is one of our smallest birds of prey. It typically feeds on dragonflies which it catches and eats on the wing. This bird was photographed in a small area of heath land near Loughborough using a telephoto lens with a very shallow depth of field which enabled both the foreground and background to become pleasantly out of focus hence concentrating our attention on the bird.

No Honey Here
by
Jeremy Abington

Digging through a turf stack at the bottom of the garden I found a wasp nest the size of a football buried inside. Having waited for the angry wasps to calm down I was intrigued by how similar the layered structure looked to honey comb. Taken on a Canon EOS 70D with an EF 100mm Macro lens.

Ouch

Ron Brown

Harvest mice have become quite rare in England owing to the changes in agricultural procedures which mean that their nests in grain fields are disturbed earlier than used to be the case. This little chap is having a prickly time manoeuvring on top of this teasel.

Pipe Dream
by
Ken Gore

While searching through old prints I found this. My uncle smoking his pipe. The newspaper dates it to 1959 so I must have taken it on the British 35mm Corfield Periflex given to me on my 21st birthday. An historic photographic gem!

Curls

This is the lovely and talented Faith Obae. Those curls are of course a wig but it is the contrast between it and her smooth skin as well as her expression that makes the image so powerful.

Emily
by
John Jennings

This photograph is of my son Jack's Flugelhorn, a slightly oversize trumpet. It has a wonderful melodious sound. One of the two pieces of music, is the lovely jazz standard "Emily" written by Johnny Mercer and Johnny Mandel. I decided the top right corner looked a little bare so I added some treble clefs using colour lifted from the horn.

Man In Stripey Jumper
by
Connie Fitzgerald

I love the humour of this tiny figure on the vast and beautiful Rhossili Beach, on the Gower Peninsula. Taken with a 70-300mm Nikon zoom at 145mm., this is pretty much straight out of the camera. Every view from the high vantage point of The Worms Head Hotel is a photograph.

Red Dawn - Corfe

An early start to a magical September morning rewarded the photographer with this mystical scene of Corfe Castle in Dorset. Rendering the castle in silhouette and cropping to a square format adds to the graphic nature.

Sepia Celloid
by
Fiona Gurr

Using a macro lens and a mini, pop-up studio in the kitchen, I sprayed a dandelion clock with water droplets and shot many images. As so often, this early one was the best. The light and limited colour, together with a tight crop, meant I had very little processing to do.

A very early morning in Swanage Dorset rewarded the photographer with wonderful hues in this minimalistic image of the 'Old Pier'. A slow shutter speed helped add to the graphic nature of this tranquil composition.
It received top marks in the 2014 season and also a coveted 'starred' image in a recent Federation of NW London photographic competition.

GERBERA FLAME

Connie Fitzgerald

Gerberas are one of our most popular flowers. They are so perfect they almost look unreal. Photographed in profile, the jet black background of this still life study has perfectly enhanced the elegance of this deep red daisy and the striking flame like quality of its petals. A popular and successful image in competition..

BLUE POOL
by
Connie Fitzgerald

Solitude is a powerful thing and is frequently used as a way to reflect on a situation or experience emotions while alone. Solitude works well in photography and allows for great composition. This image appeared for just a few minutes at a coastal location in Essex as low light filtered through rolling white cloud.

AN EASTERLY BREEZE
by
Dave Hipperson

This was taken looking south over Barnet public playing fields early one February morning in 2014. All the white is frost - not snow - as the conditions at the time (-7C with a very slight breeze) were just right for creating very large fingers of frost over everything. When 'the moment' occurs, one's best equipment is invariably elsewhere. So it was on this occasion. No tripod and a comparatively basic camera

LAST OF THE LIGHT

Sue Hipperson

A clear cold winter's day - Christmas 2014 produced a stunning sunset on the Welsh coast just north of Barmouth. This shot was taken out of the window of a moving car some way from the beach. The individuals enjoying their walk would have had no idea how vital their presence was to the composition.

ALLIUM FLOWER

Most images one see of Allium flowers are of the fully open characteristic globe. In this instance I preferred to photograph the flower emerging from the bud because of the wonderful gradation of colours from green to mauve. I decided to give the whole image a painterly feel.

ROOM FOR ONE MORE

Sue Hipperson

A Summer picnic on the Norfolk coast and suddenly the air, sand and our sandwiches were covered with ladybirds. A mass hatching like this doesn't happen very often so while everyone was running around waving their arms about in panic I got my camera out. This has been produced as a greeting card and won a couple of competitions.

BOTTLE AND TWO GLASSES
by
Sue Hipperson

A holiday evening on the coast in our camper van. After a bottle or two of wine I spotted the potential mix of the blue and orange. I am still not sure if it was the wine or my artistic approach to panning the camera that created this image. I like to think the latter!

RUSH HOUR
by
Jeremy Fraser-Mitchell

The average traffic speed in London is lower now than in the days of horse-drawn transport. However I managed to get a sense of movement by using an exposure of 1/8s as the bus passed in front of the Houses of Parliament. I was standing by a traffic light I was able to rest the camera on something solid to avoid camera shake.

NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM

The interior of this building has always been one of my favourites in London. The Romanesque style together with the lighting from the symmetrical windows lends itself particularly well to photography.

ABBEY FROM THE WEST IN SNOW
by
John Jennings

This was taken in early January and at mid-day, a time photographers traditionally avoid due to the high angle of the sun. However being Winter the sun was quite low so there were still shadows in the snow. The bright sky makes the snow look almost blue and provides contrasting colour to the warm stone and detail in the masonry.

DOVERCOURT LIGHTHOUSE
by
Connie Fitzgerald

Dovercourt is a small seaside town in Essex. These original six legged lighthouses were built in 1863 and used until 1917 to aid safe passage into Harwich. They were restored in 1988. The late afternoon December Winter solstice gave up this pink and blue sky. A firm camera mount and a long shutter opening keeps the lighthouse sharp but blurs and softens everything else.

The photographer's arrival was just in time to catch these two people walking out of this enchanting snow covered 'tree tunnel' into the light. To enhance the photo she has produced it as 'an impression' in order to give some movement to the trees. To view it, it is best to stand back a little.
