It was good to welcome Darrell Oakden back to judge for us. He is a member of Alsager CC and has had considerable success in nationals in recent times, quickly gaining BPE3* and a DPAGB. Montages figure quite a bit in his own work but he proved last time to be open-minded in looking at our work and all genres stood an equal chance.

Again, he did a fine job and communicated his thoughts about each image in some detail.  We look forward to welcoming him back again next season.

Afterwards I reflected that the top 12 images came from 11 different authors and I think that is a tribute to the wealth of talent we have in the club and to Darrel’s even-handed judgement.

We will feature winners on the front page over the next couple of weeks and a gallery of the top twelve images is being prepared. The results, and a league table appear on our Results page under the Downloads tab.
