HERE'S a nice take on autumn: orange gold leaves captured in the prism of a glass globe, with a hint of clear blue sky behind.

Press Camera Club member Karen Boyes started something of a trend with this photo, taken at Burnby Hall Gardens, Pocklington.

Karen's photo may have sparked many imitators. But she got there first. And for her intriguingly different twist on the autumn photograph, Press photographer Frank Dwyer was delighted to choose her as winner of this month's camera club competition.

"She caught the atmosphere of autumn by finding a new way of looking at it," he says.

Karen wins £50, a canvas print of the winning picture - and of course the kudos of being a camera club winner.

The theme of this month's competition was autumn, and the standard was so high that Frank decided he had to choose two runners up: Sandra Mennell, for her dreamlike image of woods in autumn; and Sue Butler with her blazing autumn colours photographed at The Homestead.

Frank also selected several 'highly commended' photographs, including Brenda Wood's 'floating by', which captures something of the serenity (or should that be resignation?) of old age; and Paul Anthony White's coastal view entitled 'Living the Dream'. "He managed to construct a very dramatic image," says Frank.

There were far too many high quality entries for us to feature them all on these pages. But we've selected the winner, runners up and a few of Frank's 'highly commended' other favourites. You can see the rest on the Press Camera Club page on Facebook.

If you think you can do better than this, meanwhile, why not have a go in our November competition? The theme will be #abstract. Just go onto Facebook, search for Press Camera Club, and join up. The club now has 580 members, all keen to share photos, and offer tips, advice and encouragement. And of course to win the November competition...
