Ayrshire Post - - Ayrshire Life - Staff re­porter

The skilled cam­era­men and women of Ayr Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety have been be­hind their lenses all sum­mer.

While reg­u­lar meet­ings were scrapped, there was plenty of time for out­door shoots.

The re­sults are in for the first com­petion of the new sea­son, the Jes­sops Open, which was judged by Guy Phillips of Pais­ley Colour PC.

The so­ci­ety was founded in 1905 and meets in the Loudoun Hall in Ayr ev­ery Thursday night.

The club’s For­rest Weir said: “New mem­bers from com­plete be­gin­ners to pro­fes­sion­als are al­ways wel­come and we have added a few more this year.”

‘ Peek­ing Os­prey’ by Harry Mor­gan and ‘ Cir Mhor and the A’Chir Ridge’ by Michael Kelso were joint win­ners of the Best In­ter­me­di­ate Print sec­tion.

Mal­colm Yates won Best In­ter­me­di­ate dig­i­tal pro­jected im­age with‘ Dy­ing Light’.
