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

Jeff Haynes, a keen mem­ber of the Field End Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety, won the Gazette Cup when his strik­ing por­trait was hand-picked by the Uxbridge Gazette’s own chief pho­tog­ra­pher, Chris Berry.

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.

“It was very dif­fi­cult to de­cide on the win­ning pho­to­graph. It’s a truly fan­tas­tic ex­hi­bi­tion of pic­tures – such a great va­ri­ety – from tra­di­tional, to ex­er­cises in Pho­to­shop.

“Well done Jeff,” Mr Berry said.

The so­ci­ety cel­e­brates its 40th an­niver­sary this year and Mr Haynes’s im­age was judged at its an­nual two-week ibi­tion at the Cow re Gallery in Manor rm, Ruis­lip. t runs daily un­til nday, Novem­ber 2, m 10am un­til 5pm, d is free of charge. The club will con­tinue

40th cel­e­bra­tions th a visit from nowned land­scape hotographer Charlie Waite later this year.

Mr Waite will be giv­ing a talk, called Be­hind The Pho­to­graph, at Fair­field Church in Wind­sor Close, North­wood Hills, on De­cem­ber 10.
