After what seems like a lengthy gap with no salon successes to report I was delighted to receive the catalogue for the Southport Exhibition and note the success of four NCPs photographers.

Dorothy Redford had “Waiting” and “Blue Eyes” accepted in Open Colour Prints whilst Geoff Robinson had “Nicole”accepted in the same category. Joyce Streets had “Sassi” and “Windy weather” accepted in Open Colour PDI and “Hooper swans” accepted in Nature PDI.  Rob Hockney had “Swallow-tailed gulls mating” and “Wild boar sow in Forest of Dean” accepted in Nature PDI and “Heading for a score” accepted in Monochrome PDI.

Some of the accepted images are shown below.
