2020 – Round 3 – Bi-Monthly Results – May 18th.

This was the third of our six 2020 bi-monthly member competitions. Normally our members are encouraged to submit 2 prints and 2 digital images in an open format. However due to the logistical problems of collecting and delivering prints during this ‘lock down’ period, this bi-monthly competition was for digital entries only. Our judge for this 3rd. Bi-Monthly competition was  Mike Dales. 
Mike reviewed and commented on 58 digital images. However due to the current travel restrictions and the need for ‘social distancing’ Mike was unable to deliver the results of his findings in person. However he supplied sufficient information that we were able to share his deliberations and results to our club members using Video Conferencing facilities. 40 members and guests joined the video call to view the digital entries and to consider Mike’s feedback and critique.

Below is a Table of the Top 8 Digital Images and their authors.
