This was the 6th and final round of this season's league competitions. The theme was Nature and we saw a wide variety of subjects during the evening including birds, animals, insects, fungi and plants.
Our judge, Daphne Hanson DPAGB, HonPAGB, was faced with the task of scrutinising 66 images before giving them a score. She did a great job identifying the strengths and weaknesses of each image and deciding on a score. Daphne commented that it was a tough job because there were a fair number of excellent images. Her constructive criticism should help us improve our photographs in the future.
You can see the images which scored 19 and 20 below.
