2017 Bi-Monthly Round 4 Competition Results – July 17th 2017

SYPC have a schedule of 6 bi-monthly competitions where members can optionally submit 2 prints and/or 2 digital images. All the bi-monthly competitions provide an excellent opportunity for members to hear an experienced judge assess their prowess, both technically and artistically.

Professor Bob Ryan (ARPS, FRPS) was the external judge for our 2017 Bi Monthly Round 4 competition. Bob critiqued and constructively commented on 78 images (26 prints and 52 Digital Images) submitted by our members. After selecting his favorite image from each pair of images and explaining why he preferred that image, Bob then selected his Top 8 Digital and Top 8 Prints announcing the results in reverse order.

Bob’s relaxed, yet professional style, of constructively commenting on all our images was extremely well received as was the humor he brought to the evening.

Below is a Table of the Top 8 images and their authors in each section.
