Zoom On-line Competition No.1

In view of the Covid-19 disruption, Banbury Camera Club is organising club meetings online. On Monday 6th April 2020 the first such meeting was held and it was a competition. Each participating member could submit one colour digital image in advance of the meeting. The Judge was Chris Baldwin. Judging was done in the usual way discussing each image in turn, holding back the best and making final placings. There were 25 images and 41 members joined the meeting from the comfort of their own homes.

Many thanks to the committee for organising the event over a difficult period and especially Trevor Cooper for putting together the instructions and FAQs and being Zoom Mentor.

As usual the titles below give a link to the image.
