Yorkshire Region held its first ever members' exhibition recently and it turned out to be a tremendous success. Peter Yeo carried out his duties as assessor with good humour, good advice and helped make the occasion the success it undoubtedly was.
Some 22 members exhibited and Peter Yeo selected various images as his choice and these can be found below.
There was also a vote by members who chose the picture "Round and round the garden" by Sally Sellet LRPS as their favourite and it is this picture which leads off our Members' exhibition blog.
But the competition was very close with the second place being shared by three members - Stewart Wall "The Age Divide"; Bernard Todd LRPS "Room for rent - no pets" and Carol Emmott LRPS " Jetty- Soustons Lake".
The exhibition which was held at the National Media Museum in Bradford was enjoyed by all and plans are already in the pipeline to do it all again next year.
Works were exhibited by 22 members who all submitted three pictures each covering a wide range of subjects and styles.
After looking at all the works Peter Yeo then chose one picture from each entrant as being his choice and they are listed below.
