Tuesday 5th September - Summer Challenge

We started the new season with our Summer Challenge. This year 18 club members took up the challenge and entered a portfolio of six images taken during our summer break. Each entry also had a contact sheet showing all six images.

The first step was to see a preview of all the entries. Then the hard work began!  Our judge, Bob Darts, reviewed all the images and made brief comments on each one. He selected 10 portfolios to put on his shortlist. After further inspection, he whittled this down to six before finally announcing his top three and two highly commended.

Congratulations to our 2023 Summer Challenge winner, Christine Alcock, whose entry Bob described as a stunning set of images.

In second place was 'In Among the Flowers' by Andy Caws, third place Francesca Shearcroft's 'Garden Insects' and two portfolios were highly commended, 'Butterflies' by Maureen Campbell and 'Golden Hour' by Steve Gregory.  You can see all the shortlisted portfolios below.

Our thanks to Bob Darts for judging our Summer Challenge.
