Our judge for the evening was David Venables DPAGB BPE4, someone who is quite used to knowing what a good competition image requires. His critique was focused and forward moving for each photographer who entered. Thank you David.
This was the first competition of the year for new prints. The two previous competitions were ‘Best of the rest’ for last season’s prints that were not placed in the top three and a PDI competition. It was refreshing to see that all of the images were, as is required in the rules, new for this season.
