Les Ayres, of Appleby-in Westmorland, Cumbria, England, a brand-new member, wins this month with his First Place Star Mono print, In the Engine Shed. He also won First Place in Star Color.
Our judge, Bob Benson, FPSA, EPSA wrote: “Well crafted B&W print, with wonderful use of blacks for impact. Lots of good detail here that keeps me coming back to look again. Corners have been darkened to keep the focus inside. The nice bonus is the man working in the background, who helps give dimension and depth to the image”
