5th Competition 2017-18

The fifth internal club competition of the 2017-18 season took place on Wednesday 21 February.  This was an “open” competition for both prints and projected digital images (PDIs).  As usual, the entries displayed a wide variety of subjects, approaches and styles – covering landscape, architecture, portraiture, candid/street, travel, wildlife, flowers, monochrome, abstract and much more.

 The competition was judged by John Credland ARPS, a professional photographer from Buckingham (and member of Buckingham CC), who provided us with his usual entertaining commentary as he examined the images.
