It is a while since we had a Focus on competition....when the members present are the judges and vote for their top 5 images. Only rule being that you cannot vote for your own image.
It was good to have so many images, a total of 39, but the holiday season has kicked in and the audience was quality rather than quantity!! Small edible prizes were awarded to the top 3 images.
After the break and a short brainstorm for programme ideas, we watched the images from the recent PAGB Gold Cup, both Nature and Open. Some lovely images and something for us all to aspire to.
