MEMBERS FAVOURITES: three favourite picks - in no particular order - are as follows:
Richard Greswell Arteries Comorants Fish Rack
Amanda Page Cormorants in the mist – I love the regression showing in the birds giving a bit of depth
and the waves over the rock through the mist.
Storm Force – the colours in this appeal to me giving it the mood and the feeling of the power
of the waves.
Arteries – the colour and the textures in this one are fantastic.

Ron Parnell Rainy Day Coast Gone Paddling Fish Rack
Claire Carter Gone Paddling - Wonderful use of depth of field.
Cormorants in Mist - Lovely recession and catching the wave behind a bonus.
Fish Rack - Good connection with the subject. A quality image with great light.
David Kennedy Mersea Island Cormorants in Mist Gone Paddling
Lynn Upton-Roddy Mersea island Gone paddling Fish rack
Alex Brian Cormorants in the Mist - I love how everything is pale apart from the rock making the scene seem otherworldly and mysterious.
Storm Force - the orange colours, and the building adding an extra layer to the picture.
Arteries - a very well seen idea and the bright colours and contrast help it stand out.
