Photosprint Competition 13th August

We had 6 participants, Jan Davis, Andy Dulson, Jeff and Lynne Owen, Mem Baybars and Dave Abbott in the Photosprint.  We met up at Eastgate Square and were given the theme “Colour” one hour later we down loaded the images at the “Four Chesnuts” pub and viewed the results on their TV.  The judging was performed by artist Ghislaine Davis.

The winner was Mem Baybars
