At Thursdays meeting the judge Richard Walton and the members present acknowledged that The Club has made a huge improvement in assembling photographs into panels. The judge was extremely good at commenting in depth the twenty or so panels submitted, underlining throughout the “panel particularities” and clearly had some difficulty in choosing winner from the 3 best.

IMG_1555The panel The Beach: Footsteps in the Sand from Sue Nash was considered the most original and justifiably won. A second place to Dave Abbott: Porlock Salt Marsh and third place to Jeff Owen: I Race for Life For…. The panels from John Field and Hilary Featherstone were judges as Highly Commended.

 

It was nice to see Peter back at the meeting. Welcome back.
