This was our last externally judged PDI competition, so the final opportunity to add to our results table!
Our judge, Jenny Hibbert, from Bridgend Camera Club, has a particular interest in wildlife photography, but that didn’t stop her enjoying the other genre in our work. We entered a good variety of subjects, from still-life to wildlife and the quality was high. She gave the images well considered remarks, including advice for the authors, and marked them out of 20. 5 photos were held back for further consideration and high scores.
As the evening progressed, we also learned a little about Jenny’s photography, with occasional anecdotes on her travels and encounters with bears and birds! If you are interested to see some of her work, take a look at this link: https://www.photocrowd.com/photographer-community/95854/
