ATALENTED photographer has been chosen as the first winner as part of an anniversary competition at his camera club.

Mr Haynes’s photo, titled My New Jumper, was taken on the streets of Yangon in Myanmar (formerly Rangoon in Burma).
“It is such a great picture – the expression caught my eye and the contrast, not just photographically, but the new blue jumper and the traditional man,” said Mr Berry.
