This months Competition was the Set Subject – Patterns in Nature. Set Subjects are chosen for their ability to challenge and this month was no exception!
A huge thank you to our guest judge Bill Chambers. Bill not only provided many insights into the world of nature photography and judging but also shared many helpful suggestions to our entrants.
