Of the images held back, four gained 17 points these were submitted by Rebecca Entwistle, Vernon Barlow, Marjorie Hoyle and Eileen Craig. 18 points also went to four images, with entries from Marjorie Hoyle, Barbara Harding, Stan Harding and Jim Minor. The seven runners up with 19 points were Jim Minor, Adam Pridgeon, Alan Flavell, Stan Harding, Eileen Craig, Phil Burns and Stuart Wilson (2). The top spot with 20 points went to Jim Minor with ‘Street Shadow’, an atmospheric shot of a backlit figure casting a long shadow which proved to be the judge’s favourite.
