    I hope you enjoyed your Easter break and that the rain has not dampened your photography too much, or get caught out with an April-Fool’s joke.

    Results for the Bernie Morgan panel competition on Thursday 22 March. Well done:

    • “Gordon Clarke “Sea Pool Bude 3rd”
    • “Heather Clarke Flower & Vase 2nd
    • “David Woods Movement 1st”.

    Well done David on winning the panel trophy and also getting one of your images published in the Photographic Alliance GB Enews with City Scape.

    To see David’s City Scape image go to thepagb.co.uk – page 9 or HPS Facebook page.

    Next Thursday 5 April is the “Tony Perryman Mono Print Trophy” to be judged by Colin Westgate.

    Wednesday 11 April all our members are invited to the Loughton Club for a joint meeting. For directions look at Loughton’s web page.

    Thursday 12 April Night Photography by Peter Warne. Also “Hand-In” for the fourth print league.

    At the Photography Show in March I bought the software package “Affinity” to replace Photoshop. No monthly subscription just a one off payment that did not break the bank. The software has a few odd things that I need to get to grips with but it is does all the things that I was able to do in Photoshop and more, still learning.
