Wednesday September 25th - Our first Open Competition
Our thanks to our judge, Huw Alban, who stepped in at the last moment when our scheduled judge was unable to attend through ill-health. There was a good turnout of members with a strong input of images, both digitally projected and prints, of high quality. This was reflected in the high scores given by our judge along with detailed and supportive comments with suggestions on how to improve our work. Landscapes, still life, animals, architecture, abstract, portraiture and nature were just some of the themes displayed. Our next internal competition is on the theme of sport so get out there and take some images!
