CLARKS SUMMIT — Thirty-six photos were entered for judging in the Northeast Photography Club’s exhibit Nov. 5 at the Abington Community Library on West Grove Street.
Landscape, nature, flowers and animals were a few of the subjects entrants chose to capture in their photographs.
“They (the photographs in the show) are all creative and met high standards. Eventually, it came down to very nitty gritty details,” Abington Journal reporter/photographer and event judge Elizabeth Baumeister explained, prior to announcing the winners in five categories.
The winners are, First Place Color: Garvin Bixler, “Fall Morning at McConnells Mill;” Honorable Mention Color: Marty Straub, “Unspoken Expressions;” First Place Black and White: Elizabeth Owen, “A Little Off the Top, Please;” Honorable Mention Black and White: Carlos Roedan,“Valley of Fire;” and Best of Show was awarded to Marty Straub, “Reflected Light.”
Jakub Jasinski also received a special award in recognition of his photo, “The Charles Bridge (in Prague),” featured on the postcard used to announce the Nov. 5 exhibit.
The Northeast Photography Club was founded in August 1989 and three to four exhibits are held at a variety of venues throughout the year. Members range from beginner to professional.
Raymond Listanski, exhibit chairman, said the exhibits “give people a chance to get their work out into the public. The photographers can get some recognition and also, possibly, sell some (photos). The main thing is to get exposure.”
The Northeast Photography Club meets at 7 p.m. the second Wednesday of the month at the North Pocono Library, Moscow.
