Our (very) Special Series competition drew to a close this week with the third and final round of images under the topic “Taken in 2021”. With the raiding of the archives off limits, TPS photographers sought out their favourite images from the first five months of 2021, and the diversity of images was remarkable!
Thanks to our guest judge Cherry Larcombe EFIAP ARPS DPAGB BPE*5, for stepping us through the many entries and selecting the winners.
There was one winning image in each of our three classes. Here they are:
CLUB Class – Andrea Watson for Storm force:
INTERMEDIATE Class – Chris Fenton for Isolation Bubble:
ADVANCED Class – Marie-Ange Bouchard ARPS CPAGB for Drawn into the Picture:
Some fabulous images there, and very worthy winners!
Before we get to the overall winners of our Special Series Competition, here’s a gallery of the highest scoring images (9 points or more), as chosen by our guest judge:

CLUB CLASS: Marcel Wizenberg (27.5 points)
INTERMEDIATE CLASS: Mike Barker (28.5 points)
ADVANCED CLASS: Marie-Ange Bouchard ARPS CPAGB (30 points – wow, and two judge’s favourites!!!)
A big bravo to all three of our class winners and a thank you to everyone who stretched themselves to take part in our Special Series 2021 competition. We hope you had fun and picked up some great tips for your next photography adventure.
