They range from a shot of charming French homes perched on the banks of the Loire to an atmospheric night scene in the Fine City.

Portraits and landscapes, some with a touch of creative editing, have been on display at Wymondham Photographic Society.

These images are from the latest of a series of competitions, run throughout the group's September to June season, of which four are for prints and four for digital images.

After totting up the year's results, the best photographer is crowned at the end of the season.

This month, David Balcombe's picture of bluebells and Darren Joy's shot of 1930s Holly-wood glamour earned a joint first place from judge Andy Wilson of the Bungay Camera Club.

Des King, who is on the society committee, encouraged keen photographers to come along.

'We are a very friendly, happy club and we would like more members,' he said. 'Ideally we're looking for about 10 or 15 more, so we'd welcome people to come along.'
